What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?
How diverse the background of the student body is at Rice Business.

What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
Organizing and running the dessert table at the international partio. The amount of people that were amazed by the selection was a great experience.

What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
I love the Museum of Natural Science. It is even better since Rice students get free admission with their Rice ID.

In a sentence, what is the one piece of advice you have for prospective students?
Pace yourself with the number of classes you take during the spring semester.
