The Latinx Freshman Experience


To Incoming Class of 2023

On behalf of the Office of Multicultural Affairs, we want to extend a welcome to Rice University! We are very grateful you decided to attend our incredible institution for your baccalaureate studies. Rice’s distinctive commitment to holistic undergraduate education and experience reaches far beyond the classroom. The sooner we know you, the better! Nuestras Raicers is an interative retreat experience that seeks to create a unifying event for newly admitted Latinx students. This free retreat introduces entering first-year students to the unifying aspects of the Latinx community at Rice and identifies essential resources and networks to help you reach your maximum potential. The event results in a more connected class of incoming students equipped to seek out institutional support, peers, and professionals on campus for mentorship and guidance.
