Rice: Unconventional Wisdom

Student Life


Ranked No. 2 for "best quality of life" by the Princeton Review, Rice students love the culture and the resources that support them in their day-to-day lives.  The rankings are based on students' assessment of food on and off campus, dorm comfort, campus beauty, ease of getting around campus, relationship with the local community, campus safety, the surrounding area, interaction between students, friendliness and happiness of the student body, and smoothness with which the school is administered. Rice has consistently ranked in the top 10 of this category over the past several years. We place a premium on student self-governance and easy access to people, facilities, clubs and organizations, and the city of Houston.
