Are you a current or future first year college student? If so, you are not alone. Generation College is here for us and designed to support our educational aspirations.

The interactive web site will serve to bridge the gap between K12 schools in the Houston area and the university. Counselors as well as students can ask questions and request visits from Rice students and staff as well as continue the conversation online. This is a space for support and encouragement to help us overcome the many challenges that can often hinder our quest for success.
