As classes resume, stay engaged

Rice’s campus was lucky to be largely unharmed due to Hurricane Harvey. Thanks to the administration’s careful planning, students were safe and well-fed despite the storm. The crisis management team’s updates provided a constant flow of information and Housing and Dining supplied on-campus students with plenty of food. Facilities and Engineering made sure buildings were safe before reopening them and fixed any problems they found.
