What to watch for: Conference USA basketball tournament

(03/11/19 9:32pm)

With the regular season over, both the Rice women’s and men’s basketball teams are heading to Frisco to compete in the Conference USA tournaments. The women enter their tournament as the No. 1 seed after winning the regular season conference championship, while the men will be underdogs as the No. 11 seed in the 12-team field. The winner of each clinches a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Here’s a look at how Rice stacks up. 








Editorial: Next SA should open doors

(03/06/19 5:01am)

Every election cycle, candidates push to increase the diversity of ideas that make their way from the student body to the Student Association Senate. 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’

(03/06/19 4:58am)

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. 




The silenced experience at Rice

(03/06/19 4:35am)

This op-ed has been a work in progress for a few weeks. There is so much we could write about, given recent events that have occurred at Rice. We have met multiple times to discuss the points we wanted to discuss in this piece, and each of those meetings has felt like a firehose to the face. So many issues surround the Black experience at Rice that we doubt an entire edition of the Rice Thresher could do it justice, never mind a single piece.
