Bright Futures
Fall move-in day brought a record number of smiling young faces to the Rice campus. The 896 freshman students, surpassing last year’s record number by more than 100, were selected from the largest applicant pool in Rice’s history: 11,173. The incoming class is almost 14 percent larger than last year’s, putting Rice’s Vision for the Second Century plan for a 30 percent expansion of the undergraduate student body ahead of schedule.
