Welcome Back Day

Welcome Back Day is held the Saturday before Fall semester begins, and is a day filled with great music, fun activities, and lots of free food and swag! This year, we are collaborating with Rice’s student-run radio station KTRU to bring local artists to WBD for a concert. We are also working with Oui Eats, Pluckers, Cane’s, Papa John’s, Tacos A Go Go, River Oaks Donuts, Cane’s, SMOOSH, RA Sushi and many other sponsors to provide you with an unforgettable experience both in your ears and in your mouth. This year’s activities include DIY succulents, a photo booth, a caricature artist, and a bungee run, among others! As always, we’ve got free t-shirts, totes, and stickers for you and your friends, and new for 2019, we’re also including a raffle featuring merch from the Rice Bookstore and Rice Athletics, a CHAUS thermos, and fast-passes for RPC events throughout the year! The event is open to all Rice students, so grab your friends and come on down to the Central Quad and RMC and enjoy the festivity!

Past performers at Welcome Back Day included: Three 6 Mafia, The Wild Moccasins, Travis Porter, Sam Adams, The TonTons and DJ Kap Slap.
