Life on a Lanyard
Rice students keep everyday necessities organized and personalized via lanyards and carabiners.
From classes and jobs to internships and extracurriculars, a student’s keys follow them everywhere. Their ID gets them into buildings, their AirPods provide them with study jams, their panic buttons and pepper spray keep them safe, their wallet pays for coffee, their decorative keychains remind them of friends and family — and their lanyard or carabiner hold all of these necessities in reach. In a world of change, it’s easier to keep your life on a lanyard. — Emma Korsmo ’24
