A Day at Rice University

Houston is the fourth largest city in the USA and so it should not surprise anyone that our fair city has some excellent universities – one of which is Rice University. I had to visit Rice U. today (Tuesday, Dec. 30) to discuss plans for a research project at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering which our company intends to support in 2009. Even though today was officially a vacation day for me, I didn’t mind going to Rice for a few hours of work. Besides being a great university with some 400 world-renowned instructors, the Rice campus offers visitors some of the finest examples of architecture. And since the weather today was perfect (only a few clouds were visible), I brought along our new Canon 50D digital SLR and can now share some photos of the campus with my readers. Enjoy!!
Lovett Hall – one of THE main buildings on the Rice campus. This courtyard is where the annual graduation ceremony is usually held.
