Guys and girls alike can try adding a printed bow tie to their collar and sweater combination for an extra level of fun. This look works best if the dress shirt underneath is white. A jewel-encrusted, removable collar is a trendy and versatile fashion piece that can spice up any solid-colored sweater. For sweaters with busier patterns, like Nordic or Floral, try the white Peter Pan collar variation. If you want to try the collar and sweater trend with a flowy skirt, tuck a more form-fitting button-up into your skirt, and layer a loose-fitting sweater over it. Finish your outfit off with a thin belt, which will accentuate your figure without overwhelming your outfit.
Embracing their inner prep, Rice students have been spotted all over campus sporting the collars and sweaters trend. Will Rice freshman Genevieve Tariton and Hanszen sophomore Vishnu Kumar were just two of the many students spotted wearing this layered combination in light of the chilly weather. Though both wear dress shirts underneath their relatively fitted V-neck sweaters, Tariton and Kumar demonstrated two very different looks.
People drink it sociably in public and private places alike, consuming it in its rawest, most bitter forms, or mixing it with other flavors so that the sweetness will make the drink more bearable. Not many people are aware of just how physically and psychologically dependent they are on it, and most are willing to spend a ridiculous amount of money for one small serving of temporary fulfillment. For better or worse, you can buy this addicting liquid almost anywhere; Rice has three places that sell it, all within minutes of each other.
Caffeine has always served as a sociable source of fuel for Rice students, with their endless stream of problem sets and reading assignments, but the extent of caffeine usage has changed dramatically between the mid-20th century and the early 21st. Though earlier alumni generally testified to the absence of different forms of coffee and a lack awareness towards caffeine levels in drinks, the nature of their responses suggests varying generational attitudes towards caffeine usage.
Last Friday at 4 p.m., students and faculty gathered in Humanities Building Room 119 to hear University of California, Berkeley Chinese Professor Wen-hsin Yeh give a lecture entitled "Of War and Peace: Relations across the Taiwan Strait."
Leopard print is a tricky trend to rock. Though the animal print undeniably holds a connotation of boldness and sexiness, it also can scream tacky-trophy-wife-who-is-trying-too-hard when worn incorrectly. Martel College freshman Meredith McGrath (pictured to the right) has the right idea though.
A pair of leopard print sunglasses can instantly add sass to any outfit. To make them really pop, wear them with a neutral-colored top or dress. Avoid pairing the glasses with busy floral — or tribal — printed clothing.
Seven students reflect on the September 11 attacks that shook the lives of Americans everywhere in 2001. Differing greatly in background, beliefs, and personality, these students manifest the diverse reactions of young Americans in the aftermath of 9/11.
Ahhh DiffE. The mere pronunciation of the word strikes a keen sense of dread into the minds of many incoming students. Known as the "Orgo" of advanced math courses, the course is famously featured by three Rice students in "Teach Me How to DiffE," a YouTube parody of Cali Swag District's "Teach Me How to Dougie."

Bleary eyed but in cheery spirits, the students burst out of the humanities building chattering amongst themselves about their favorite Shakespearean works. It is 7:45 in the morning --- an ungodly hour of the day to be awake (and happy) by collegiate standards.
For the third year in a row, Rice has been ranked number one by the Princeton Review for having the best quality of life. According to the 2012 edition of the Princeton Review's annual guide "The Best 376 Colleges," Rice also rose from eighth to first in the category for happiest students. Rankings by the Princeton Review are based upon the opinions of approximately 122,000 students at 376 colleges, who were surveyed in the 2010-11 school year. Factors that were taken into consideration for the ranking include campus beauty, satisfaction with school administration, dorm comfort and food. President David Leebron said that he was pleased with both rankings and cited a general attitude on campus of how we can all contribute to making life better. "You know, there are a lot of great facilities, new facilities, Houston's a great place to be … a lot of the rankings have to do with how people feel about living in the city," Leebron said."But I think that the bedrock on all of which this is based is how our students treat each other." Hanszen College senior Felix Chang said that Rice's best quality of life rating is deserved. "Being a mere 15 minutes (by car) from one of the largest Chinatowns in America and with it, delicious taro bread and shaved ice, is definitely a huge, huge plus … the surrounding West U neighborhood and campus in general has a very safe feeling," Chang said. "Additionally, the lack of snow and sunny winters certainly are a bright spot and contrast to the frozen wasteland that I deal with during winter break at home." Sid Richardson College junior Allison Wang noted that Rice really has so much to offer. "I love the different courses, free food, and [that] we also get to go to our sport events for free," Wang said, "On top of that we are a tightly knitted community." Will Rice College senior Valerie Li echoed similar opinions. "The one thing I like about Rice is its prime location in Houston that provides easy access to many resources that the city has to offer, ranging from diverse volunteering opportunities to some top-notch museums and theaters in the country," Li said. "That makes my college experience unique, and bear a sense of social responsibility." In regards to other categories, Rice rose from no. 19 to no. 13 for "Great Financial Aid," and rose from no. 11 to number six for "Lots of Race/Class Interaction."
