Undergraduate Admission
Rice: Unconventional Wisdom

Arts and Events


Outstanding cultural and educational events await you at Rice. Whether you're into theater or politics or you're a spectator or performer, we've got it.

The Shepherd School of Music presents numerous concerts each year, and the student-run Rice Players produce first-rate theatrical productions. The Rice Art Gallery, the nation's only university gallery dedicated to installation art, features free, eclectic exhibits year round.

If attending a lecture is more your thing, the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy and the Office of the President bring stimulating speakers in a wide range of topics to campus each year.

Off campus, undergraduates can enjoy the city's outstanding art and theater facilities with Rice's Passport to Houston, which provides a free METRORail pass and discounted admission to many museums and concert venues.

The Calendar of Events is an extensive listing of daily events and programs on campus.
