Line dancing at Rice President David Leebron’s house during his annual welcome barbecue is a time-honored tradition, and among many that the COVID-19 pandemic put on pause. The festivities returned Nov. 15, when a double-welcome bash was held to greet the classes of 2024 and 2025.
“Thrilled to finally be able to welcome this year’s AND last year’s freshmen to our backyard for the annual welcome barbecue, which we haven’t been able to hold in over two years. I had the best time, & I think they had fun too. Great food & great company,” Leebron wrote in a post on Twitter that included a line dancing video.
