New students get a taste of Texas

In Texas, barbecue is more than a favorite local food — it’s practically a religion. Rice’s new freshmen enjoyed local barbecue and the company of their classmates Monday night at the home of Rice President David Leebron and his wife, University Representative Y. Ping Sun. In addition to a hearty dinner, students were treated to tunes spun by a disc jockey. Mouse over the photo to see the full Flickr gallery. (Photos by Tommy LaVergne and Jeff Fitlow.)
