Great academics, but standout residential college system

5.0 of 5 stars

January 2016 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Residential college system is what distinguishes Rice University from other top 20 schools. As expected, the academics at all of these schools are great (Rice is no exception), but what Rice does best is create a unique social atmosphere that allows for a close-knit community filled with friendly inter-college rivalries and college pride. Harvard and Yale also advertise their own residential college system, but Rice's is way more defining of the overall culture. Definitely check this out to see if you'll like it (most people do) before coming here.

Downers

Since summer jobs are easiest to find around Rice, many students endure the summer heat/humidity and it isn't exaggerated (but this is more than made up for by being able to wear flip flops every month of the academic calendar). Parking is kind of a hassle, but for being in the middle of the 4th largest city in the U.S., it's probably worth it.

Comments

Can't emphasize enough how much you should look into Rice's residential college system - it is a huge part of the culture here.

Good academics, a lot of big companies from Houston recruit at Rice.

The food is terrible, not a very well-run school, parking is a hassle

Consider the size of the school before you come. I would recommend only if you like being in a small environment.
