What a pretty campus! The Quad in front of Fondren Library is a classic. One of the top schools in the country has a campus second to none. Take a drive through when you are in town. Trees everywhere!

An old professor of business from Rice gave us an idea of where to start visiting. People on campus are really kind.It's a beautiful campus with less football court and more trees and classical buildings and decorations.

This campus is big and very nice. There are several places that you can take really nice pictures. The ranking of the school for engineering is really good as well.

The campus has some great buildings. The James Turrell Skyspace is a most to visit, especially for the sunrise or sunset light sequence. Parking is a bit of a hassle and there seems to be no option but to park at a pay lot.

Rice has long been recognized as a premiere university. The campus is attractive and well maintained. The buildings are well done as is the landscaping. Worth at least a drive through the campus.

Driving or walking around this campus should be considered by art and architecture travelers especially during a cool day.

A good and relaxing stroll after sightseeing in the city of Houston. A really nice campus with so much green foliage and squirrels running around the campus. Close to the museums and Rice Village.

Beautiful campus with great architecture and oak trees that are over 100 years old. Love talking walks and attending sporting events there. Love Rice Stadium and Reckling Baseball field.
