Rice University is sponsoring the construction of a house through Houston Habitat for Humanity in honor of Rice's Centennial celebration. The entire Rice community is working together to sponsor the project, and is trying to raise $65,000 by Feb. 2012. Six students from the Rice School of Architecture will design the Rice Centennial House with a design consultation from the Houston Habitat for Humanity. The house will be built over six weekends in March and April of next year. The project is intended to reinforce Rice's Culture of Care, as well as to unite students of different colleges with the surrounding community.
