As 25% of the total alumni base, Young Alumni represent an essential and rapidly growing subset of the Association of Rice Alumni. For this reason, the ARA is excited to provide this community with a range of programs and events throughout the year. Everyone who has earned an undergraduate degree from Rice within the last 11 years is considered part of the Young Alumni group of Rice University.
Rice Young Alumni is driven to promote social interaction through educational activities, community involvement, and cultural experiences. We strive to offer information, events, and opportunities for all Rice Young Alumni to continue their engagement with the university. Our goal is to nurture a sense of community as recent graduates establish themselves away from the Rice campus.
Several avenues of engagement exist for Rice Young Alumni, including:
The Young Alumni Host Committee serves to advise and promote the programs, outreach, and activities tailored to Rice alumni who graduated within the past 11 years. Members of the Young Alumni Host Committee strive to serve peers by nurturing opportunities for engagement in Houston and across the nation. All Young Alumni are eligible to self-nominate and be selected to serve on the Young Alumni Host Committee. Committee members dedicate their time and energy in an effort to ensure that Young Alumni programs contribute towards the success of the ARA. Host Committee members are expected to provide feedback to outreach emails, serve as committee chair for specific events, advance Young Alumni programs through promotion and participation, and represent Young Alumni to the ARA Board.

Established by the Association of Rice Alumni and the Rice Annual Fund in 2005, the Builders Awards recognition program honors young alumni who have made outstanding contributions to Rice post-graduation and enhanced the reputation of Rice through leadership in their careers or communities. Past winners include notable regional alumni leaders, Annual Fund volunteers, affinity group trailblazers and other young alumni who are committed to supporting Rice and its community of students and alumni through their dedication of time, talent and energy. We invite you to recognize young alumni who are building a better future for the university by nominating candidates for the award. The call for nominations opens Rice Day, October 12, and continues through January 31.
