Undergraduate Experience

The undergraduate experience includes all academic and non-academic experiences in and out of the classroom. The experience should be holistic in nature and extremely rewarding. Rice University provides incredible opportunities through its various academic departments and programs, professional offices, residential colleges, and formal and informal organizations. The Office of Academic Advising and academic advisors across campus are dedicated to introducing students to the various available opportunities and resources. In most cases, students are forced to plan carefully if they want to take advantage of several opportunities at once. It can often be more rewarding to fully engage in a few opportunities or experiences than to partially engage in many. However, students are encouraged to learn about the full range of possibilities early in their undergraduate experience.
