Rice University, offcially called William Marsh Rice University, is a private coeducational research university located in Houston, which is the seat of Harris County, situated in the US state of Texas, a city with a population estimated at a number of more than 2 200 000 inhabitants, during the 2010 census, fact which makes it the fourth-largest city in the country and the largest city in the state of Texas.
Rice University was established in 1891 and opened in 1912, first starting as he William Marsh Rice Institute for the Advancement of Letters, Science and Art, adopting its current name in 1960. Rice was founded several years after the murder of its namesake, the prominent Houston businessman William Marsh Rice, who made the founding possible, by leaving a $4.6 million ($111 million in current dollars) funding endowment in his will.
Since it first opened its doors to students, the university has constantly grown, offering today its students, which number approximately 3,500 undergraduate, 900 post-graduate, and 1,200 doctoral, 40 undergraduate degree programs, 51 masters programs, and 29 doctoral programs, through 8 schools, among which there are: The Rice University School of Architecture, The Rice University School of Humanities, The Rice University School of Social Sciences and The Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies.
Rice's athletic teams are known as the Rice Owls, who compete in in NCAA Division I, as part of Conference USA, in various sports, including in baseball, in which they won the 2003 College World Series, defeating Stanford, giving Rice its only national championship in a team sport, and football, in which they qualified for their first bowl game since 1961, in 2006, ending the second-longest bowl drought in the country at the time.
Among the most resonant names, on the list of notable alumni, there are: Howard Hughes - former aviator, engineer, industrialist, film producer and director, Peggy Whitson - NASA astronaut, Candace Bushnell - author of Sex and the City, Steven Schafersman - President of Texas Citizens for Science, Robert Woodrow Wilson - co-discoverer of cosmic microwave background radiation and Nobel laureate, and James A. Kahle - IBM Fellow and chief architect of the POWER4 and Cell microprocessors, among many others.
