Our family traveled to Houston for Rice Homecoming last weekend. As always, it was an excellent opportunity to reconnect with our alma mater and see myriad dear friends in a pretty short time. Additionally, any trip to Houston affords us the opportunity to eat our fill of Texas BBQ and Tex Mex! The weather was gorgeous for our 48 hours in town and it was wonderful to return to our old stomping ground.
In addition to attending all the regular Homecoming festivities, this year we also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of Lovett College. This included two days of celebration events – both informal and formal – and even a special wine tasting. As Lovett was our home away from home during our university years, this year’s additional time spent there felt like a true homecoming.
We will probably have to wait 10 years for the next such celebration but frankly we wouldn’t mind if we did it every year – EOL RRF!
