This is also connected to residential college life; while the colleges are great, they are sometimes to the detriment of other extracurricular activities on campus, as people seek to remain involved among their college peers rather than achieve a greater impact on or beyond the campus-wide level. Finally, I hope to see certain lesser-known departments prosper and offer the same opportunities as those that are more recognized. The promise of undergraduate research is not available in all departments, and I hope that students in economics or English have similar opportunities to those in chemistry and bioengineering. Rice has succeeded, but there should be no upper limit in its future.
I hope to see Rice continue its exceptional path and build upon its successes. The people are truly what distinguish this university, and I hope we continue to attract stellar faculty and students. Four years at Rice is a gift — enjoy it and pay it forward. Christoph Meyer is a graduate of Hanszen College, class of 2012.
