youarewelcomehereThe #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign started at Temple University with an aim of showing that American universities are welcoming places for international students even in the current political climate. Rice's #YouAreWelcomeHere video was created and filmed exclusively by three amazing Rice undergraduate international students, Andrew Keat (United Kingdom), Kiara Reyes Gamas (Mexico) and Nimi Wang (China). They truly made something special! We hope you enjoy it!
