Detailed Ratings

Rice's biggest benefit is the talent that its prestige and selectivity attract. The other students at Rice were so smart, quirky, and interested and I haven't been in an environment that equals that since I graduated seven years ago; I sometimes think I will, sadly, never find that again. It's in a great area of Houston that's nice, but still offers affordable student housing very close to campus, and the food/nightlife/diversity of Houston and the University are unequaled.

Detailed Ratings

Overall impressed by the diversity evident in the atmosphere of the school. Was someplace that any student could find their place in. I particularly liked the way that the students live in the dorms and the way that this is done (questionnaires) - dorms are not segregated by group or talent or club which I particularly liked.
