Rice University will welcome a new parliament of Owls this weekend when members of the Class of 2013 hit campus for O-week, a seven-day orientation program designed to acquaint students with their new campus, residential colleges and classroom cohorts.
More than 900 freshmen will be moving into Rice’s residential colleges on Sunday. There to welcome them will be upperclassmen and athletes continuing the move-in day tradition of helping with the heavy lifting. See photos from last year’s move-in day here.
The week begins Aug. 16 with move-in day, when students will settle into one of the 11 residential colleges to which they’ve been randomly assigned. Many of the students will be moving into Rice’s two new colleges, Duncan and McMurtry, construction of which was completed just this summer.
