The main thing that's bothering me about Rice is what I've heard about apathy towards politics, causes, social activism, etc. Did you feel like there is some political/social activism activity at Rice? I know Rice is more conservative than some universities, so that might be part of it. But I've read that Rice students are so caught up in their studies that they don't have time to voice their opinions--sometimes not even in class as well! Anyone know if this is true?
Also, do you feel like there is a good amount of culture classes as Rice? I'm really interested in exploring other cultures while at college, and I had some trouble finding culture courses in the course book.
