David Minter’s legacy lives on through Rice alumnus Bruce Dunlevie (Sid Richardson ’79), who remembers the late professor as a hero in his life. As an undergraduate, Dunlevie admired Minter to such an extent that his life almost turned out very differently.
Seated behind his desk, Joseph Novak looks like any other professor. But seeing him work soil hand in hand with about 15 undergraduates under the hot sun of a Tuesday afternoon, the unique connection he has with his students becomes clear as day.
First in Conference USA with 265 total kills after 17 games. Those are not numbers you might expect from a freshman, but that’s exactly what Nicole Lennon has produced for the Rice volleyball team in her 17 starts this season.

The last time Rice soccer lost, it was early September. Students had just finished their first week of classes since Hurricane Harvey. The first public party of the year had not yet happened, and midterm exams were weeks away.
On Saturday night, Joywave, Cold War Kids and Young the Giant concluded their two-month tour with a sold-out show at White Oak Music Hall. The tour featured Young the Giant’s “Home of the Strange” album, which the band describes as a “modest coming-of-age story; a moment that will cast long, happy, shadows in the dog days.” This ambience carried through the night, with strong performances from all three bands.
The new office building and parking garage next to the Allen Center is expected to open in October after delays from Hurricane Harvey, according to Kathy Jones, associate vice president of Facilities, Engineering and Planning.
Every student knows the frustration of underperforming in a class. But most haven’t been voted out by their classmates afterwards.
The Baker College commons contains only its usual smattering of students doing their homework and hanging out. Suddenly, the doors open and the quiet is shattered. In marches a group of students in red sweaters and Santa hats, carrying in tray after tray of cookies painstakingly prepared for the students. It’s Baker Christmas.
Makeup fanatics around the world have been glowing (literally) since the release of Rihanna’s new makeup line, Fenty Beauty. The line, named after Rihanna’s surname, was teased for two years, before finally being released on Sept. 8. It features nine beauty products, ranging from Gloss Bomb Lip Gloss ($16) to Match Stix Trio Face Sticks ($54), and eight beauty tools, such as Invisimatte Blotting Paper ($16) and the Full Bodied Foundation Brush ($34). The line is limited compared to most, including only foundation, primer, highlighter and lip gloss. However, the products are designed for versatility and portability; the Match Stix Trio consists of a conceal, contour and highlight shade all in magnetic packaging that snap together. Prices are similar to other high-end makeup products, and the quality is nothing less than expected from Rihanna. More important than its quality is the collection’s statement; it opens the door to the beauty world for women of every color, race, religion and culture.

Three shipping containers sit at the corner of Alumni Drive and Loop Road, often unnoticed by passersby.

SA President Justin Onwenu has taken applications and will choose the 10 committee members.
Dear Thresher and Lizzie Bjork,
Expecting the Career Expo to be the start and finish of a job/internship search is a major mistake for any student, regardless of major. The Career Expo is just one of many events that the Center for Career Development sponsors and in many ways not one of the most important. Dropping your resume off at a career booth or picking up brochures from an organization is not going to get anyone very far in the job/internship placement process. At the very least, most organizations have a formal online application process and just dropping off a resume won't cut it. Failure to follow up a conversation at the Expo with an email note or written letter expressing interest and restating one's qualifications is a mistake students often make. Being well-prepared for an interview is critical in getting an offer, and that may take networking with alum or even non-alum.
As University of Houston went up 31-0 with 7:40 remaining in the first half on Sept. 16, with a buzz from tailgating no longer easing the pain, I left a Rice football game early for the first time in my nearly four years as a Rice student. Given that I worked as a student manager for the team for my first two years at Rice, perhaps that is a biased statistic. While I was Sunday-morning-quarterbacking the game with friends the next day, many voiced their desire for the immediate dismissal of head coach Bailiff.
Rice soccer just keeps climbing higher. By holding Louisiana Tech University to a meager four attempted shots, the Owls flew past the Lady Techsters with a 2-0 victory last Thursday. With the win, Rice moved into the national top-25 in the Ratings Percentage Index for the first time this season.
It’s the perfect Saturday night: Hundreds of trucks are tailgating, thousands of students are waving their arms in unison and a crowd of over 50,000 is cheering on your school’s pride and joy, a program with a rich tradition and history — your football team.
It wasn’t a blowout. But it was still a loss. For the third time in four games, Rice football could not come up with a win, this time falling 13-7 to conference rival Florida International University. The Owls are now 1-3 on the season and 1-1 in Conference USA.
