I support Rice Business because of the invaluable knowledge, experience, and friends I gained as a result of my time there. As a Consortium alum and scholarship recipient, I will always appreciate that I was able to have this amazing experience thanks to the donations of others. Supporting Rice allows me to give back and an opportunity to help current and future students like myself. I love being a part of a community of alumni committed to supporting Rice Business, its alumni, and its students. I also really love the events and opportunities to network with wonderful individuals from different class years.

The support you provide to Rice Business can truly have an invaluable impact on the lives of students. I am forever grateful to Rice Business and its donors for giving me the opportunity to thrive at Rice Business. That is why I am a Rice Business Leadership Society member. Also, the perks and events are great!
