Back in the classroom

A group of 67 inquisitive-minded alumni came back to campus June 14 for the 2014 Classroom Connect program at the D. Kent and Linda C. Anderson and Robert L. and Jean T. Clarke Center, the new home of the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies. Formerly dubbed Alumni College Weekend, Classroom Connect features a variety of courses, keynote presentations and interactive programs. Co-sponsored by the Association of Rice Alumni and the Glasscock School, the program creates unique opportunities for alumni, parents and friends to engage with Rice’s renowned faculty and researchers.
