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 beautiful campus, with a "diverse" cohort of students. However, I encountered only Asian students. As a prospective student, the admissions office is working hard to make me feel welcome.

    This university is great for people wishing to pioneer in an intellectual environment. With people from all backgrounds, even visitors will get a chance to meet people from places they've barely heard of. At Rice, it seems that they value the well-being of their students and of their student community.

    The people--students, professors, staff--are kind and open, establishing a great atmosphere to make friends, have fun, and of course, learn. Academics are difficult as expected, but the help that is accessible to you really does get you through the class. The activities outside of classes are limitless, ranging from cultural clubs to athletics to tons of study breaks and parties.
