Hall of Fame Induction Banquet: The R Association and Rice University Athletics began the Hall of Fame in 1970 to honor those who "possess or shall have possessed, in addition to outstanding ability in sport or sports, other qualifications such as sportsmanship, character and integrity," and who have "brought great distinction to Rice University." Since then, more than 200 Owls have received the designation, and we are proud to welcome more to Rice Athletics highest honors. New classes of inductees are enshrined every two years with the next class set to be inducted in 2019.
Night of the Owl: This all-sports banquet, presented in conjunction with SAAC, is held each spring to recognize the athletic, academic and community accomplishments of our scholar-athletes.
Scholar-Athlete Banquet: Presented in conjunction with Rice Athletics Academic Advising, the Scholar-Athlete Banquet is held each spring to honor the academic endeavors of our outstanding student-athletes.
Football Huddle Up: An annual gathering of football lettermen which includes a reception on Friday night and an Owls game the next day. Details for the 2018 event will be posted soon.
Football Taligates: Open to all letter winners and their families. We are cooking up a storm at the Soutwest corner of Rice Stadium 2 hours prior to kickoff. There is no charge to join us, but donations are always welcome.
Other Social and Fundraising Events: The R Association encourages letterwinner participation in a wide-range of social and fundraising events throughout the year. Numerous golf tournaments, team banquets, tailgates, and team reunions are planned.
