You should also like the Rice Computer Science Club Facebook page, to which many club and department events are posted. There is also a general Rice Computer Science group you can join on facebook if you have a rice email. For events related to career development, visit the career page.

Social Events

Throughout the year, we hold social events such as lunches, study breaks, mixers, bowling nights, and random outings. We regularly host a study break or Christmas party after classes end. In the past study breaks, we have had activities such as cookie decorating contest, gift exchange, video games, trivia, prizes and swag giveaways. We also host a movie night once a semester.

Lunch Talks

CS Club lunch talks feature Rice professors, students, and alumni with interesting research or career experiences to share. The talks are coordinated by Dr. John Greiner, and are open to undergraduate students only. They're generally held on Wednesdays at noon in Duncan Hall, with free lunch provided! Be sure to join the our club mailing list for announcements regarding these lunch talks.

For a schedule of speakers, as well as a list of past speakers, check out the undergraduate lunch talks.


Rice CS Club hosts a yearly student-led hackathon named HackRice. During the hackathon people get together and collaboratively code in an extreme manner over the span of a day or two to build amazing projects!

It's simple: Code, Eat, Sleep for the entire weekend and see what you come up with. We'll take care of the eating part.

At the end of the hackathon, participants demonstrate their applications to the audience and a panel of judges for a chance to win prizes.
