The primary goal of the Academic Advising for Athletics office is to ensure each student-athlete receives the help he or she needs to be successful in Rice University's challenging academic environment. In order to guarantee success, our academic advisors meet individually with student-athletes on a weekly basis to construct plans for academic achievement and monitor progress. Advisors assist student-athletes with everything from scheduling classes and selecting a major to preparing for post-graduate scholastic, athletic and career opportunities.
Among many other resources, the Academic Advising for Athletics staff offers tutoring, supervised study sessions, and help determining the availability of courses to avoid conflict with practices and competition schedules. Our staff is available five days a week inside the Bixby Center located in the Youngkin Center of the Tudor Field House. Built in 2009, the Bixby Center houses offices for advising, compliance and student development as well as boasts computer access, study resources, and group or individual study space for student-athletes.
