When Houstonians visit the Rice University campus April 12-14 for the UnConvention, they'll be treated to the most unconventional open house in Rice's history.
From a display of inventions by student engineers and an Asian Film Festival, to Shepherd School of Music concerts and a lecture about the role of civic scientists, the UnConvention will give campus visitors several days of many ways to educate and entertain themselves.
In honor of Rice's centennial year, we're opening our doors and hedges to the people of Houston so they can experience firsthand the unconventional wisdom that has become the motto of our university," said Linda Thrane, vice president for public affairs. "We want to invite families and friends from throughout the city to help us celebrate our centennial through the more than 50 feats of derring-do that only a school as unconventional and wise as Rice can offer. We guarantee you'll have fun, you'll learn something you didn't know before you got to campus and you'll want to come back."
