After many months of work, the "final" version of the Constitution has been unveiled. We are going to hold a ratification vote either this week or the next. Read it at Government>Policies, talk to your class reps about it, and attend Forum to see it (hopefully) get passed!

Saturday, November 2 10:00 PM - 1:00 AM

Join us for a night of two-stepping and line dancing! For those of you who don't know how to two-step, several lovely and talented experts will be holding informal dance lessons 30 minutes prior to the party. We will alternate between country and pop music.

There will also be a MECHANICAL BULL in the quad! See how long you can hold on! Work out your inner thighs!

We will have a photo station where you can document the evening with friends or by yourself!

We will be providing heaps of food, including NUGS from Chick-fil-A and PIZZA from Dominos and WATER from the fountain!

Lastly, this is a dry public party. We hate to be downers, but if you are noticeably intoxicated, we will politely remove you from the party.

So put on your dancin' shoes and cowboy boots and join us for a night of fun!

We have just completed moving our website to the Amazon Cloud. Our servers are now load balanced and have the ability to handle more more traffic simultaneously. We hope that this will improve everyone's experience and eliminate some of the longer page loading times, especially during periods of high traffic on the book exchange.

The mobile version of the website has also been updated to take better advantage of the available horizontal screen space and many of the annoying horizontal scroll bars have been eliminated. Additionally, navigation sections will now always appear on top of page content in the mobile version.

Finally, we have added full support for HTTPS. From now on, you will automatically access the encrypted version of the website.

For all new students:

We would like to welcome you to Rice! We're all very excited to have you become a part of our college and we can't wait to meet you in August. We've put a great deal of work into filling our website with everything that you might want to know about Duncan. You should take some time to explore the information on our website and the O-Week Website that the coordinators have set up. We hope this information will help you to get a sense of Duncan's culture and to prepare for your first year at Rice. You may also be interested in an online tour of the facilities. You can also download a digital copy of your O-Week book if you haven't received one yet.

If you haven't yet, you should join the Somewhere Over the RainbO-Week Facebook Group (to join the group, you need to have a rice.edu email on your Facebook account). We also have #Duncan, a larger group for all members of Duncan.

If you have any questions about O-Week, you should contact the coordinators directly - they would love to talk to you!
