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.
