The Rice University English as a Second Language Program is taking part in the #YouAreWelcomeHere movement. This national social media campaign is spreading a friendly welcome message from U.S. higher education to international students around the world. We have welcomed students from more than 115 countries into our ESL programs. We value each and every one of them, as well as the unique views they bring with them.
Our program is located in Houston, one of the most diverse cities in the U.S. The energy and cultural diversity of the Houston community, including our students, contribute to making our city a rich, vibrant and exciting place to be.
