Miguel grew up in a coastal community and has a passion for environmental conservation—specifically the ocean. He also took a community college Philosophy course over the summer and has been involved in political activism during high school. I plan to study Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Rice. I fear the ocean I love is disappearing, and I am committed to protecting it.
Starting the Ocean Project Club to raise awareness and clean beaches was a start, but I can do more. At Rice, I hope to join the Egan Lab research project focusing on conservation genetics. I am inspired by the undergrad who tracked fish species in the ocean using environmental DNA. But science alone cannot save the environment—public opinion and policy need to align, too. I plan to minor in Philosophy to better understand the social problems preventing change.
I want to join the Civic Duty Rice Club to educate and inspire youth to join the fight as political activists. Together we can preserve our resources and my beloved ocean.

I visited campus to explore the Shepherd School of Music but discovered a thousand other reasons why Rice is perfect for me. The strong sense of community and belonging I felt when walking through McMurtry College astounded me. I could have stayed in the Commons talking with students all day.
I am eager to be active in college government, with my sights set on leading a service and outreach committee. This leads me to my second favorite thing about Rice—the city of Houston. I envision myself regularly visiting the Asia Society Texas Center to learn about and celebrate my heritage.
I cannot wait to contribute to the Rice community and serve our Houston neighbors. She shared her personal campus visit experience and the top things that stood out to her.

Stephanie is applying to Rice as a double-major in English and Anthropology. She fuels her passion for telling stories by writing for her school newspaper and submitting her original work in creative writing competitions. I felt her body tense as the technician approached with the needle. I never felt particularly close to my grandma.
But when she got sick, it became my job to take her to dialysis appointments. So I sat beside her, trying not to think about her blood pumping through the small machine in front of us. She asked me a few questions about my life, but I soon ran out of things to say.
My hand itched to pull my phone out of my pocket, but I could tell my grandma was anxious and needed a distraction. I tried to think of questions to get her talking. I was unsure where to start—her life was so different from mine. She began recounting her high school adventures, and I was enthralled by her stories.
I could not believe how many similar experiences we shared. When the three-hour appointment ended, I wished I could stay and listen longer. At the next treatment, my grandma began sharing more stories of her teenage years. After a bit, another dialysis patient jumped into the conversation—then another and another. I sat there delighted, listening to the four of them reminisce about their youth. We became a squad, the five of us. The dialysis appointments were the highlights of my week. Eventually, I started bringing a notebook with me.
The stories shared were so beautiful—I needed to transcribe and save them. A few months later, a member of the group passed away, and my grandma and I went to her funeral. The daughter skeptically unfolded the paper and began reading. As her eyes skimmed the page, they filled with tears. I realized something important that day. Stories build connections that transcend time. I can help them recognize the beauty and magic contained within their stories.
I hope to compile a book of stories from the members in my residential college so we can leave it as our legacy to Rice. We have so much to learn from each other, and much to teach.
