Rice's student-athletes are already known for their academic and sports achievements, but now fans will have a chance to see a new side of the Owls at the inaugural Rice student-athlete talent show this Sunday (Mar. 18) from 7-10 pm in the Grand Hall of the Rice Memorial Center (RMC).
The student-athlete talent show, titled "Owls on Stage," features 11 performances from members of Rice's various varsity athletic teams such as baseball, volleyball, football, soccer and more, all showcasing their versatile `non-sports' talents.
