Although not as large as many Texas universities in terms of student body size, Rice University stands out for its excellence. Admission to become one of Rice's fewer than 3000 undergraduate students is very rigorous, with only about a quarter of applicants being accepted. The majority are from out-of-state. There are no fraternities or sororities. Intercollegiate as well as intramural sports are played. The university occupies a 300-acre campus three miles SW of downtown Houston.
