About Rice University

Rice is a comprehensive research university that fosters diversity and an intellectual environment that produces the next generation of leaders and advances tomorrow’s thinking. Over the past century, Rice has been able to uphold its founding president’s vision of an institution “of the highest grade” while still providing a superior education to students at tuition levels much lower than comparable schools. This has been possible because of the university’s dedicated leadership throughout its history. It takes many people to successfully govern a nationally ranked research university, from the president and other officers to the Rice University Board of Trustees to each member of the university committees. On May 18, 1891, Massachusetts-born businessman William Marsh Rice chartered the William Marsh Rice Institute for the Advancement of Literature, Science, and Art as a gift to the city of Houston, where he made his fortune. The terms of the charter required that work on the new institute would begin only after Rice's death. The Rice Institute opened on September 23, 1912, the anniversary of Mr. Rice's murder, with 77 students and a dozen faculty. An international academic festival celebrated the opening three weeks later, a spectacular event that brought Rice to the attention of the entire scholarly world. Four years later, at the initial commencement, 35 bachelor's degrees and one master's degree were awarded, with the first doctorate conferred in 1918. Rice is a leading research institution that fosters diversity and an intellectual environment that produces the next generation of leaders and advances tomorrow’s thinking. Outside the classroom, you'll have the opportunity to interact with faculty members through experiential learning and hands-on research. More than just a residential hall, your college will be the place you dine, study, socialize and develop lifelong friendships. Whether you choose to live on or off campus, you will be affiliated with your college throughout your time at Rice. As an integral part of the university's mission, they seek a broadly diverse student body where educational diversity increases the intellectual vitality of education, scholarship, service and communal life at Rice. Their 300-acre, tree-lined campus features more than 70 major buildings with architectural elements that are uniquely Rice. There's plenty to see and do, so plan your visit to Rice today.
