I found this in the Dean of Undergraduates collection:
I can hardly imagine a worse introduction to the life of higher learning. I would have been hiding in the library the entire time.
There’s a lot of interesting and sometimes comical material in this collection, by the way, but the most important thing about it is a broad change that took place during the 1960s. Discipline at Rice in the late ’50s and early ’60s might best be described as both petty and merciless but by the end of the decade the Rice administrators in charge of student affairs were spending much of their time in an effort to keep students out of the grasp of their local draft boards.
Bonus: Rose petals in the Turrell Skyspace this morning.
