Capturing the Rise of Rice

(04/28/21 3:52am)

Born from a single, unassuming sketch on a loose napkin, Rice has steadily attracted the attention and respect of the Rice community. Current president Yi Luo, a Wiess College junior, approached her orientation week videographer Daniel Davis, a Wiess College senior, with the idea to create a platform for Rice photographers to connect with each other and create pieces together. The two ended up brainstorming ideas over dinner with the help of other Wiess students. One napkin sketch later, Rice was born.

Whether you’re looking for a socially distant picnic date, cupid-themed photoshoots or even just sending yourself a well-deserved box of chocolates, there’s something for everyone this Valentine’s Day. Check out our guide down below for date ideas, local events, florists and chocolatiers. 

Rice students take the mic with independent podcasts

(09/23/20 4:29am)

The beauty of podcasts comes from their convenience — plug in your headphones, press play and go about your day — you’ll find that more often than not, podcasts will fall seamlessly into your schedule. While plenty of Rice students have turned to podcasts to break up the monotony of their routine, a handful of owls have traded headphones for microphones and started shows of their own. If, like me, you’ve struggled to fill the empty stretches of silence of your days in quarantine, consider listening to these four podcasts created by your fellow Rice students.
