“She’s a ... bad thing.” These four little words worked like magic on me on a summer afternoon in 2016, when I first watched rapper Aminé’s music video for “Caroline.” I’m not sure if it was the charming lyrics, his “Pulp Fiction” T-shirt, or all those bananas, but I was in love.
Rice hopped on the online course bandwagon a few years ago, and the courses continue to be popular today.

The Rice administration began posting calls for professors to teach these online courses.
Screaming fans, sweat-stained jerseys and leather pigskins. There was some serious football played this past weekend, not just at Rice Stadium. Powderpuff playoffs began this week with Martel College facing Duncan College and Will Rice College facing Lovett College in the quarterfinals.
Remember that Rice basketball team from last year? The one that went 23-12, made the College Basketball Invitational and had hopes of competing for the conference title in the near future? The one that made the “Rice Rising” mantra head coach Mike Rhoades had preached for years finally feel real?
Last year’s Rice volleyball season ended in heartbreak in the conference tournament. The Owls lost in five sets to Western Kentucky University, nearly pulling off an improbable run the conference championship as the No. 6 seed. This year, the No. 3 seeded Owls are looking to redeem themselves. They open the Conference USA tournament on Friday against the University of Southern Mississippi in Bowling Green, Kentucky. According to head coach Genny Volpe, the team is prepared for a battle.
In another example of the drastic effects national policy can have on the Rice community, the tax bill in Congress has the potential to severely impact graduate students (see p. 1). The proposal would remove exemptions for tuition waivers, increasing the effective tax paid by graduate students on already small stipends.
Last election cycle slammed a huge wedge between the political left and right, and there’s plenty of blame to go around.
The past year has been less than stellar for social media companies. It is surprising then, that such companies continue to enjoy a particular reverence among the wider university population. Buoyed by some of the legitimate benefits social media brings to daily living, these companies have sailed over seas of negative impact unscathed and with still-glistening reputations. Those interested in a job after college (most people) regard the firms as elite options for future employment and are particularly generous in their grace. This mentality has grown increasingly problematic and needs to change.
A majority of students support the the Student Association’s Lifetime Enrichment Activities Program proposal to replace the Lifetime Physical Achievement Program requirement, according to the results of the 2017 Survey of All Students.

The Rice and Southern Miss offenses combined to score on the next 11 possessions before a Rice turnover on downs effectively ended the game in the fourth quarter.

Rice soccer’s historic season came to an end Friday night with a 3-2 loss to Baylor University in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The Owls finish the season 12-4-2 with a regular season conference championship and the fourth-ever NCAA tournament appearance in program history. Some notes from the season-ending loss:
With 5.9 seconds left in the Rice men’s basketball season opener, Rice trailed Eastern Kentucky University 73-72. After a timeout, Rice sophomore guard Ako Adams received the ball off the inbound and sprinted down the court. He drove all the way to the basket and got a layup off. No good. Sophomore Tim Harrison grabbed the offensive rebound and tried a putback attempt. Again, no good. The buzzer sounded. Game over. The Owls were 0-1.
An error too common in analysis of Israel and Palestine is a feigned two-sidedness, something which in practice is often used to silence the voices of the Palestinians. Under the pretense that all sides must be heard to understand the truth, Gary Dreyer does the opposite, and the Palestinian point of view is rejected wholesale.
