Conversations with The Daily Show correspondents

(03/20/19 2:08am)

Roy Wood Jr. and Jaboukie Young-White are correspondents for the self proclaimed “World’s Fakest News Team,” The Daily Show. Wood has served as a correspondent for this late night news satire show since 2015 and often tackles race-related issues. Young-White is the newest and youngest Daily Show correspondent, and just as importantly, has over 300,000 Twitter followers. I was able to catch them for a few minutes during the opening of the Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, a satirical art installation dedicated to Trump’s most ridiculous tweets.

The winner of each clinches a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Here’s a look at how Rice stacks up.

As newly elected leaders take their positions at both the college and the SA Senate level, we have several significant changes — outside of constitutional reform — that we believe would increase the flow of ideas from the student body to its leaders.


From Screw to ‘I love you’

Dressing up in costume, finding a stranger in the crowded Grand Hall, going on a blind date — only Rice would combine these three things into one event, Rice Program Council’s Screw Yer Roommate. And probably only Rice students would go to an event like Screw, which gives students the rare opportunity to go on a date without actually having to ask someone out. Screw is reminiscent of a rom-com meet-cute, and for a few students, that rom-com becomes their real life. 


Overcoming Failure and Imposter Syndrome: A Conversation with Matthew Hayes

(03/06/19 4:45am)

This is the first of a series that covers Rice professors and alumni and their paths to success. These are the unheard stories behind the successes that we see: the failure, disappointment and mishaps along the way. We start by talking to Matthew Hayes, professor of political science at Rice. In the Political Science department, he is one of the youngest faculty members and the only black faculty.
