Nuestras Raices is an interactive retreat experience that seeks to create a unifying event for recently admitted Latinx students. This free retreat introduces entering first-year students to the unifying aspects of the Latinx community at Rice. The program identifies essential resources and networks to help students reach their maximum potential. By the end, participants should feel more connected as a class. We hope they leave feeling empowered to seek institutional support, peers, and professionals on campus for mentorship and guidance.
