What do freshmen bring to Rice, besides school supplies?
1. Rain boots and an umbrella
To stay dry in the Houston weather and campus “lakes.”
Because late-night snack attacks can strike without warning — and when the servery is closed.
To stave off homesickness (and remind you to call your mom).
4. A hammock
To transform Rice’s low-hanging, weight-bearing live oaks into an outdoor lounge.
5. Noise-canceling headphones
Because dorm walls are thinner than you’d think.
