REAP International

REAP International (Rice Experiences Advertised to Prospects – Internationally), is a program designed to increase Rice University’s visibility on a broad-based scale to prospective international students, overseas universities/schools, and overseas advising centers, through hearing about Rice students’ experiences. Rice University international students choosing to participate in REAP International will be serving as a type of “ambassador” for our school.

If you are currently an enrolled, degree-seeking international student on a non-immigrant visa at Rice, and are interested in sharing your personal experience at Rice with other students from your home country, please participate in REAP International. This is a program sponsored by the Office of International Students & Scholars.
