Great campus right here in Houston

The library is a great research venue and I often use it for their computer, scanners and printers plus books, too.

I traveled to this campus to audition for the television show "Shark Tank." My son (age 14 at the time, he's 16 now) traveled with me. As soon as we passed by the campus he immediately became intrigued. He turned to me and said, "Mom I've changed my mind. I'm not going to LSU, I'm coming here!!!!" I do not... More

I have had the opportunity to visit Rice University several times. I would compare it to the Harvard of the south. The campus is beautiful and it is very clear it is known for it's high expectations.

This is by far one of the most beautiful campuses anywhere. The greenery, the stadium, the lush green surroundings are only a small part of what makes this campus rock.

Rice is a beautiful college campus with wonderful old oak trees, interesting statuary and fairly uniform and attractive brick buildings. One of the best places in Houston to go for a 30 minute walk. The secret downstairs pub is a good place to go on a hot day and the white pavillion in the center is a good place to... More

With the fact that we were here in January it had a very Ivy League feel. It is a beautiful campus. Serene calm, a great place for a walk and to get the history of the University.

What a pretty campus! The Quad in front of Fondren Library is a classic. One of the top schools in the country has a campus second to none. Take a drive through when you are in town. Trees everywhere!

An old professor of business from Rice gave us an idea of where to start visiting. People on campus are really kind.It's a beautiful campus with less football court and more trees and classical buildings and decorations. The hall where it changed color regarding the sun's position is truly an art. Art works are all over campus. Statues, fountains, you... More
