This post is going to be a little bit different from the blogs that we normally post. Rather than talk about my favorite off-campus restaurants, my classes, or my residential college, I wanted to introduce you to SAC’s brand new Instagram account!
SAC, Student Admission Council, is the club on campus that works directly with the admission office in showcasing life at Rice to prospective students. Our job is to share our experiences with students exploring and applying to Rice. We give campus tours to visitors, we host students overnight in our dorm rooms, and we write this blog, among other things.
Starting this week, we are also making use of an Instagram account! We have created this in order to give a visual perspective of life at Rice to prospective students, from the perspective of current students. We hope this will give students a chance to picture themselves eating in a residential college commons, walking to class through the academic quad, or sipping a Nutty Bee from Coffeehouse while they study for that math exam. We hope this will be an especially helpful resource for prospective students who are unable to come visit campus themselves. You know what they say, a picture is worth 1000 words!
Additionally, we will use this account to provide information from the Admission Office regarding application deadlines, as well as information about Admit and Owl Days, which are coming up later this spring. We will theme the content on the account each week, so you’ll have the opportunity to learn about student life, off-campus food options, student events, and more.
