The Rice Engineering Show

Here’s the latest video, this time about the Rice Engineering Show. I admit I get a kick out of it: I was feeling quite frazzled when Brandon came over to shoot, but he coaxed me through it by making me laugh. Some might say I’m becoming a diva. They’d better not let me hear them, though.

Bonus: Imagine my surprise when I walked into the Woodson and was immediately confronted with the stern visage of General Pershing!

He must have found out that they’re putting up a plaque by that pecan tree he planted.

Extra bonus: This morning a commenter sent a link to this piece about Ruby South Lowry (’19), who I showed a few days ago with a Biology Department rabbit. If you have a minute, please go read it. A simply written story about a woman of fundamental human decency, it brought tears to my eyes.

    As I was walking across campus today, I cut diagonally across the lawn on Founder’s Court and saw the small plaque by Pershing’s pecan tree for the first time. Very cool to see that bit of campus history memorialized!
