Committee Chairs

Each of our events is planned by a dedicated staff headed by two co-chairs and numerous committee members. Each member plays a vital role within the RPC structure and is responsible for maintaining RPC across campus. Please contact the respective committee for more specific information.

Beer Bike:

Ashton Duke is a sophomore at Baker College majoring in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering with a minor in business. This year, Ashton is one of the campus-wide Beer Bike Coordinators alongside Colin Feng. Outside of RPC, Ashton is head of Baker’s spirit committee, Head Caregiver and an O-Week PAA. He’s also a tour guide with the Welcome Center and the SAC! His favorite RPC event other than Beer Bike is the Gingerbread House Building Competition because, “it is the only event where I can shamelessly eat icing and no one will judge.”

ASHTONNNN.pngColin Feng is from Duncan College and will be graduating in 2017 with a degree in mechanical engineering. In addition to coordinating Beer Bike with Ashton Duke, this year he’ll be pretty involved in Duncan College through various committees and as an Academic Fellow, and he’ll also serve on the MECH Student Advisory board and as a Peer Career Advisor. It’d be too easy to say Beer Bike is his favorite event, so in addition to that event, he also likes Esperanza, because it’s fun to checkout interesting venues and attempt to dress/act classy.



Carey is a junior (Class of 2018) from the home of the phoenix, Will Rice College! He is pursuing a major in Kinesiology with a focus in Sports Medicine. In addition to hosting events with RPC, he is also the publicity director of RSVP and a tutor in the America Reads program. His favorite RPC event is definitely the Gingerbread Building Contest since he loves food, relaxing with friends, and a little bit of competition!


Vivian is a sophomore from Baker College majoring in Kinesiology and Psychology. In addition to RPC, she is a part of Camp Kesem and Rice Study Buddies. Her favorite RPC event is the Gingerbread House Building Competition. As a part of Night Owl Antics last year, she enjoyed seeing all the creative gingerbread houses everyone made. She loves the holiday time and she loves candy. The event combines the two, so what more can she ask for? Overall, it’s just a really festive and fun event!


Night Owl Antics (NOA):

Neal is a resident of Sid Richardson College. He plans to graduate in 2019 with degrees in Biochemistry & Cell Biology and Cognitive Science. He spends his free time playing various intramural sports (where he met his girlfriend!), participating in RPMS and RSVP events, and, of course, advertising for and running RPC events. Neal’s favorite RPC event is Trick or Treat on the Rink. Though it is one of the trickier events for his committee to plan and execute, helping students escape campus for one night to just skate, stumble, and forget about their woes was definitely very rewarding for him.


Ben is a junior from Sid Richardson College and a Cognitive Science major. He is also a supervisor for Rice EMS. His favorite RPC event is the gingerbread building competition since it brings all of Rice together to compete in a fun tasty event and there is so much food at this event that RPC provides for everyone.


Passport to Houston:

Alex Alexander is a proud Bakerite, an economics major, and member of the Class of 2017. His favorite RPC event (besides Beer Bike) is a tie between Night Bites and the President and Dean’s Study Break. He likes food and those events tend to have a lot of it. When he is not doing RPC things, he is also the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Rice Catalyst.


Iman is a member of Jones College, Class of 2017, studying Computer Science and Cognitive Sciences. Her favorite RPC event is Esperanza. Outside of RPC, Iman is a member of Jones’ Senior Committee.



Claire Casey is a sophomore from Duncan College majoring in Civil and Environmental Engineering. In addition to serving as RPC Publicity co-chair and the Duncan College RPC rep, she is also a Duncan Spirit co-chair, involved in EWB, and a campus tour guide. Her favorite RPC event is a tie between Screw-Yer-Roommate and Beer Bike, because while she loves meeting people from all around Rice during Screw, she also loves cheering on her fellow Duncaroos at Beer Bike.


Elizabeth Hang is a sophomore from Will Rice College, majoring in Psychology with a minor in Global Health Technologies. Beer Bike is Elizabeth’s favorite event as not only has her home college swept five times, it is an incredible event that brings students from all years together to root for their colleges. In addition to serving as a co-chair for Publicity, Elizabeth is also historian for the Vietnamese Student Association and on the Associate’s Committee for Will Rice College.



Kajal is a senior from Hanszen College. But she’ll be around Rice for three more years because she’s part of the architecture program! Besides RPC, she is involved with the ASR (the Architecture Society at Rice) and Design for America. As you can probably tell, she is super passionate about design and a firm believer in the power of thoughtful design to make a positive difference in communities. Her favorite event is Welcome Back Day because she loves celebrating being with friends at Rice again!

kajaaalllTejas is a sophomore at Sid Richardson College. He’s dual Biochemistry and Visual Arts major, which has allowed him to pursue a number of his varied interests, RPC Design being one of those, of course! His favorite RPC event is Esperanza because of the free food and classy atmosphere. You’ll usually find him in Coffeehouse or in the lab, depending on the day. Feel free to reach out to him ( if you ever want to talk about design and how you can be a part of it at RPC. He’s always looking for an excuse to grab a latte with someone!

She is also involved in the Rice Architecture Mentorship Program (RAMP), Merchandise at her college, and the Architecture Society at Rice (ASR)! Her favorite RPC event is undoubtedly Esperanza, as she loves dancing and the food is usually pretty great.
