    It's stationed in downtown Houston. A dull moment at this university is virtually impossible.

    Rice is right next to the Houston light rail, so getting downtown is pretty easy and straightforward. There are also always lots of on-campus events going on through the various clubs and organizations active on campus.

    There are plenty of things to do at and around Rice! On campus there is a fairly new rec center free to students that is great for working out and playing a pick up game of basketball with friends. There are also lots of plays that happen on campus as well. There are plenty of clubs to join as well as intramural sports. Don't forget to check out the varsity sports too! We have very talented varsity sports at Rice that need more support! Lastly, there are lots of public parties that happen on the weekends that are fun especially when they have a good theme. Off campus there are plenty of things to do that are close. There's the zoo, museum district, Herman park, rice village, plus the metro can take you pretty much anywhere and the metro happens to be free for students. At Rice there will always be something for you to do!

    It's right in the middle of Houston by the medical center and one of the largest parks I have seen in my life. Houston itself is a bustling city and holds many opportunities for those who care to look. But there are always events going on campus, whether it be a party, study break, workshop, concert, whatever.

    There are ALWAYS campus events going on thrown together by different organizations, so it's very easy to just stay on campus to have fun. However, Houston is a wonderfully unique and diverse city that you should take advantage of! Go to a mom-and-pop restaurant in Chinatown or take the metro (free to Rice students) downtown.

    You can go to Rice Village, two blocks from Rice and enjoy the restaurants and shopping. Or take the metro downtown and explore the city of Houston. In addition, the beautiful Hermann Park and Houston Zoo are located right across the street from Rice.

    There are many events held on the Rice campus. Clubs also hold many events. Each residential college holds two public parties each year. Intramural sports are a big thing at Rice. Rice is also in Houston, so if you're bored on campus, you can venture outside the hedges for more entertainment.
