Most Helpful Review for Rice University

Most professors teach well, and expect students to attend lectures and read the assigned material, which leads to good retention of information. Unfortunately, the workload can be somewhat heavy at times, depending on classes taken.

    Rice is a school that really cares about its students. It's on the verge of being an Ivy League school, but it gives an education of that status. The nation's next rising stars will increasingly be rooted to this university.

    Rice is an amazing place to learn and grow as a person. The social environment here is extremely accepting and everyone is very nice and welcoming. Rice also has many amazing research opportunities, especially as it is located across the street from the world's largest medical center!

    A beautiful campus with passionate students. The professors are amazing, and Houston is an exciting city. It's close to home but just far enough away.

    Rice University is a very open and accepting place with a wide variety of cultural clubs, open to diverse ideologies and all walks of life. It is a university that seems to truly care about the long-term growth and well being of it's students and they give students enough autonomy and power to have a say in the policies of the campus. There are so many opportunities to pursue your dreams while at this university and they push students to take action and achieve things outside of academics as well.

    Rice University is a unique experience tailored to each individual student. Boasting a fantastic quality of life and low faculty:student ratio, every student is given the chance to do something fantastic. The residential college system automatically provides for an opportunity for students to explore diverse cultures, experiences, and friendships.
