Our Winter 2021 issue launched online in late January and in print soon thereafter. Here is a sampling of reader responses drawn from emails, our quarterly survey and Google Analytics. 

“Solving the Vaccine Puzzle”
Former roommates and colleagues Barney Graham ’75 and Bill Gruber ’75 have been at the forefront of vaccine development.  

“LOVED this story. What a gem of a find. Loved the art and the old school photos sprinkled throughout. Interesting, relevant, coincidental — these stories only come by every
once in a while!”  

“My favorite article in the magazine — timely and engrossing.”  

“One for the Books”
A Rice student photography club captured scenes of campus life during the fall semester.

“Engaging, informative, reassuring.”  

“The excellent photos helped this alumna picture the students and the campus during this pandemic. Now I see what the ‘tents’ look like and the murals on them.” — Martha Rogers ’63 [via email]

“I loved the full spread of photos of familiar locations that are different now — but I can see myself there.”  

“The Changemaker”
Mark Little ’08 builds community relationships to support rural economic development in North Carolina.

“Loved this story of a Rice alumnus making a local impact with real-world work that touches communities directly — the hardest work.”  

“I read the whole thing — beautifully written and such an inspiring, down-to-earth story! More articles like this, please!”
