Get Involved

Feel more connected, meet peers with similar interests, apply knowledge from the classroom, learn to lead, get involved! What does involvement mean? In the Student Activities Office we like to think about it as plugging into the university in a way that allows you to connect with others and to make a positive impact on the university and greater community. There are many ways to do this. Some of those options at Rice are offered directly through Student Activities and others are offered through offices across campus. Some ideas for how to get involved are for you to:

  • Join a Club - don't miss the Student Activities Fair on August 30th in the RMC and Ray Courtyard!
  • Learn to Lead - attend a Lunch and Lead program, apply to be part of Emerging Leaders or Impact, take a Leadership Class or become a leader in a club or your college
  • Be a part of Student Self-Governance - join the Student Association, the Graduate Student Association, or get involved in your College Government
  • Study Abroad - experience a new culture and learn about the world from a more global perspective
  • Get an Internship - this is a great opportunity to apply knowledge from the classroom while getting you real world experience to help with your own job search
  • Participate in Research or Fellowships - research and fellowships are a great way to take classroom learning to the next level
  • Give back through service - Service is a great way to give back to the community, to make positive change, and to learn about yourself and others
  • Attend or plan Campus-Wide Programs - these are great opportunities to interact with the campus community and/or to learn event planning and logistics
  • Work on Campus - student assistants on campus do a lot to contribute to the functioning of the university, this is a great opportunity to learn while making some spending money
