Each residential college has 1-2 public parties throughout the year, about one per semester. Public parties are a great opportunity for students to meet people from other residential colleges and take a break from the academic rigor of Rice. At each public party there is a ton of food, such as pizza, chips, popcorn, salsa, and more for all students. To get into a public party, you must have your Rice ID. If you ever want to bring a friend from home or another university, make sure you register them as a guest at least 72 hours beforehand.
Duncan throws two parties a year, DuncStep, a country themed dance in the fall, and Sensation, a black-light party in the spring. Both events are planned by Duncan’s amazing Socials Committee.
