About Will Rice College The College of Individuals
If you take a little wander through South Campus-the most historic portion of Rice University's campus-you'll come across a college that shines like the pyre of a thousand phoenixes illuminated by myth, power, and value. Congratulations, you have discovered the rust and gold glory that is Will Rice College, the College of Gods and Goddesses" and the second college founded at Rice University. You may first notice that we have a dazzling quad, a quad flanked on three sides by a spectacular newer dorm of mighty concrete, a stunning historic old dorm of indestructibly epic architecture, and a cozy commons of much communal merriment. It's hard to not be impressed by our college's stature, even before you begin to interact with the Gods and Goddesses who call Will Rice their home.
We Will Ricers have a common goal in mind-winning. Winning is our religion and Beer Bike is our Christmas-we are the only college to have ever swept Beer Bike (meaning that we've placed first in all three races), not once, but FIVE times. Even when we don't win, we take pride in putting our best effort forward and striving to be the best versions of ourselves. We also win at intramural sports on almost a weekly basis. As you see, we have a reputation of, well, dominating, which explains why everyone tends to hate on us as a college. But honestly, you can't blame us for being proud. At our core, we are a friendly family of a residential college that comes together through sharing our daily academic enlightenment, intramural sports, parties, weekly quad celebrations, festive meetings, and of course, by simply hanging out in the commons, enjoying each other's company, eating the delicious bounty of East Servery, and talking about our latest plans to manifest our passions.
We're damn proud of our tradition of excellence. Welcome to Will Rice.
