Rice Housing Agreement 18-19

Tennessee officials said the hotel they had secured was not enough to accommodate all the isolating students. They chose Massey for overflow, they said, because of its size and the fact that there are proportionately few students living there now. Students who live there can choose between moving to another residence on campus or terminating their housing contract and returning home. The university said it would provide “supplies and staff” to help students move to another room on campus and would “do everything in its power” to keep the roommates together. Falcon said that while future issues regarding personal storage, summer apartments and internships remain uncertain, changes in campus life have made it safer for students who cannot leave to be there. In 1911 the foundation stone of the Institute`s first building, the administrative building, now known as Lovett Hall in honour of the founding president, was laid. On September 23, 1912, the 12th anniversary of the assassination of William Marsh Rice, the William Marsh Rice Institute for the Advancement of Letters, Science and Art began working with 59 registered students, known as the “59 Immortals” and a dozen faculties. After the arrival of 18 other students, Rice`s initial class consisted of 77,[23] 48 men and 29 women. Unusual at the time, Rice accepted co-trial admissions from the beginning, but on-campus accommodation was not supported until 1957.

Residential rooms remained largely closed and the university informed students that they should not return to Los Angeles for the fall semester. Despite these efforts, the university reported 43 cases of COVID-19 among students living in off-campus housing. According to a memo from Sarah Van Orman, USC Student Health`s chief health officer, more than 100 students are now in quarantine for the exhibition. The union does not have a collective agreement with the LSU. The campus is organized in a series of quadrangles. The Academic Quad, anchored by a statue of founder William Marsh Rice, contains Ralph Adams Cram`s masterpiece, the asymmetrical Lovett Hall, the original administrative building; Fondren Library; Herzstein Hall, the original physics building and home of the largest amphitheatre on campus; Sewall Hall for Social Sciences and the Arts; Rayzor Hall for languages; And Anderson Hall, from the Department of Architecture. The Award-winning Humanities Building is adjacent to the main quad bike.
