On Oct. 12, Rice University celebrated Rice Day in honor of the university's founding. This auspicious day also launched a month-long celebration of philanthropy at the university, a time-honored tradition that began with William Marsh Rice's founding gift.
From Nov. 1 to 17, the Student Philanthropy Committee (SPC) encourages all Owls to think about the role philanthropy plays in our community and honor the impact of the over 21,000 donors who gave to the university last year.
Current students will also kick off their Class Gift campaigns and join in a century of Owls giving back to Rice. Learn more about the importance of student participation at giving.rice.edu/students.
When Rice Owls Give Back, great things can happen!
