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.

    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.

    Rice recently had an information session in my area. Amazing university!!! Right across the street is the largest medical center in the world and a lot of students get to study, research, and have internships there, making it perfect for prospective students who want to go into the medical friend.

    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.

    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.
