“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Happily I seem to have started at Rice in the very same year as their centennial. Today is the day.

When Rice was founded they banned fraternities and admitted women almost from the start. Good moves.

There is a tolerance towards alcohol on campus that has resulted in the absence of stand offs between drunken mobs and police.

And it's stunningly beautiful.
