RICE Repository - for past RICE presentations and programs

RICE (Research, Internships, and Creative Endeavors) is a cross-disciplinary celebration of high-quality, independent student research, internships, and creative endeavors that provides students with an opportunity to learn what it is like to be part of an academic conference.
