Information Session: Yes - Informative, but I knew most the information before going. The speaker was very nice, had a Bostonian accent.
Campus Tour: Yes - Wonderful. Got there really early so I walked around the campus once before the tour. Really amazed at the interior of many of the building. The tour guide was very informative and helpful.

Campus Visit Notes for Rice University
Words can't really describe my visit. It was wonderful/unrivaled/(insert other synonyms here). Compared to the other campus I visited, Rice wins by far. Go visit and you'll be blown away.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Stayed at Holiday Inn by the Reliant Stadium. The hotel was nice. They have a shuttle going to Rice (although we didn't take it cause we had a car).
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Houston food was good. Didn't really look for good restaurants. Just the typical Olive Garden and such.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
So many local attractions. Wished we spent more time in the city. The natural history museum is great. Herman Park is gorgeous.
