I have always liked your handle, and I don't judge by age or other superficial characteristics. Hopefully we can still meet one day and I'll shake your hand for being an OptimisticOwl through tough athletic times.

RE: Class of 2021 admissions stats
The discussion RE: growing class sizes; I thought I had seen some things in the past where they wanted to grow the enrollment. From alumni and potential athletics fandom perspective I really would like to see the enrollment grow each and every year. There are enough outstanding students in the world to maintain the academic reputation of the university at Rice if the admin allows the student body to grow. Sure they would need to grow the facilities. Isn't that a great problem to have? The value of the Rice degree is not determined by its uniqueness.

Right because Asian people don't like sports. We've never met but I'm Asian, btw. I've been organizing the Houston Football Watch parties for the last 3 years, I volunteer to mentor and review resumes at the Career expos every year and I am involved in various alumni affinity groups. I also donate to Owl Club every year and apparently I am only about 1 of around 1000 alumni who donate yearly to Owl Club. I could just as easily say where the white people at??

What do YOU contribute to Rice besides posting about how International students don't contribute to Rice? Not to mention they pay full boat so others can get a subsidized education. Basketball is pretty popular in China, chances are if they like basketball in China they probably would like watching it here, except for old alums who want to tell them they are not welcome.

Bravo!

I want to dispel your myths but I don't even know where to start, and think that you've probably got some deep-seated beliefs that no posts or arguing on a random online forum will unseat.

I will simply say that you are clearly disconnected from the Rice student experience today, and your claims above are false.

Record size class was not intentional but result of higher yield. Guess we admitted especially discerning group this year!

This post is disgusting.

With this weekend's events in Charlottesville as a backdrop to this post, it is especially so.

I don't even know what to say. It's sad that a fellow poster would find it acceptable to put these words out on this forum. Painting an entire race with such broad brush strokes is thoughtless at best and hateful at worst.

Crummy morning perusing the news made worse by checking out the Parliament.
