According to the school, undergraduate education has remained at the center of Rice University’s mission since its founding nearly 100 years ago. Our students have unparalleled opportunities to learn from distinguished faculty through classroom interaction and research collaboration. Rice combines the advantages of a liberal arts college, including small class sizes and a low faculty to student ratio, with the resources and facilities of a premier research university. The distinctive residential college system enhances the Rice experience by allowing students to flourish as individuals in a community of their peers. Rice’s comparative advantages lie in our relatively small size, our emphasis on undergraduate education, our focused areas of strength, the relative ease by which we can foster interdisciplinary study, and our possibilities for teaching and research excellence across the range of human knowledge and endeavor. Rice boasts a 6:1 student-faculty ratio, a median class size of 15, an endowment of $3.99 billion, numerous opportunities for undergraduates to conduct primary research, and a strong sense of community fostered by our residential college system. Rice practices need-blind admission, meets 100 percent of students’ demonstrated need, and is consistently heralded as one of the best values in higher education.
