Associates are trusted members of the faculty and staff who volunteer their time to mentor a small group of new students each year, and all new students are assigned an Associate during Orientation Week (O-Week). New students can turn to Associates for guidance on issues related to almost anything because Associates can serve as sounding boards and advocates. However, Associates’ academic and experiential backgrounds are quite variable depending on their position at Rice, so they often make referrals to others in the community for advice about academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular opportunities as well as available resources.
