As part of the multiday inauguration celebration in his honor, Rice President Reginald DesRoches invited both undergraduate and graduate students to mark the occasion at a pair of receptions Oct. 21.

Undergraduates met with DesRoches in the Central Quadrangle that afternoon. Later, he joined graduate students at Valhalla to raise their cups to herald the latest exciting chapter in Rice’s history.
