在Rice University莱斯大学就读是怎样一番体验,【携尔留学】给大家翻译整理了莱斯大学的留学体验,以供参考。

1.Academics: I consider academics at Rice to be too difficult and constantly feel stupid compared to my peers. The community is very nurturing and competitive and students rarely if ever discuss grades, but I find classes incredibly challenging. Though Rice is known more for its innovations in science and math, humanities classes are equally respected in my experience and just as challenging. Students often continue academically-minded work outside of the classroom setting in clubs, research activities or just dinnertime discussion. There is an intellectual air around campus distinct from other equally prestigious but less nerdy schools. Some potential students may find it off-putting, but Rice students love to geek out.I'm on the staff for Catalyst, Rice's undergraduate research journal, and help with the ICSJ, a similar journal drawing from Rice and 10 other peer colleges in the US and UK. I'm also in Owlchemy, Rice's chemical society, which has provided some amazing travel/research opportunities and introduced me to some great friends on campus. Whatever academic interests you have, Rice probably has at least two clubs for each and you will be accepted by all.

学术:我觉得莱斯大学的学术方面很难,并且我一直认为跟同龄人相比我觉得我很愚蠢。校园社区生活很注重培养学生也很有挑战性,学生都很少讨论学分的事情,我觉得课程方面太难了。尽管莱斯大学以科学和数学方面的创新而闻名,但以我的经历,人文方面的课程也同样收到重视,也都很有难度。学生们经常在课外聚集在俱乐部进行学术性工作或者举行调研活动,也或者是在就餐时间进行一番讨论。学校萦绕着很浓的智慧氛围,这和其他知名但是学生都很宅的学校不同。可能有一些学生会觉得这里有点令人不快,但是莱斯大学的学生喜欢努力学习。我是莱斯大学本科杂志 Catalyst里的一员,我帮助ICSJ做事,这是一个半月刊,由莱斯大学和其他美国和英国的10个同类大学承办。我也在Owlchemy里做事,这是莱斯大学的化学园地,这能提供一些很棒的旅行/调研的机会,也让我认识了很多很优秀的朋友。不论你有什么样的学术爱好,莱斯大学每至少有两个俱乐部适合你,你会被他们全部接纳的。

2.Academics: Teachers are INCREDIBLE, and there is no core curriculum outside of the easily fulfilled distribution requirements (take a few humanities courses, a few social science courses, and a few natural science courses before graduating). You can explore countless fields and disciplines of study with engaging and passionate professors.

学术:老师们都好得难以置信,除了那些很简单就能完成的课业要求之外,没什么核心课程(毕业之前,要学一些人文课程,一些社会科学课程,还有一些自然科学方面的课程)。你可以尽情地和充满激情和热心的教授一起探究各个领域。

3.Academics: The reason why we all chose Rice is academics really. I have learned so so so much in this first semester alone. There are some courses that are infamously bad (looking at you General Chemistry I), but for the most part professors are incredibly knowledgeable and the courses themselves are insanely informative. The Freshman Writing Intensive Seminar requirement can be a bit hit or miss though, you can pick a really good FWIS or a really bad one.

学术:我们之所以选择莱斯大学就是基于它的学术水平。单单这一个学期我已经学到了很多很多很多的东西。有一些课程确实很糟糕(看看你的普通化学1),但是绝大多数教授学识都非常渊博,课程本身知识量非常丰富。新生强力写作研讨会要求很高,你可能做得很好,也可能很差。

4.Majors: I worked at an architecture from so I got to see what it is like to have a business in the architecture world, it is not quite like school. I learned a great deal about architecture, business, and customer service.

专业:我在一个农业结构工作,所以我会了解农业领域的商业事物大概是什么样的流程,这和学校里有很大的不同。我在农业、商业和消费者服务这些方面学到了很多。

5.Majors: The variety of majors/minors is incredible, and double, triple, quadruple, and even quintuple (not unheard of) majoring is very doable and common (unless you're in engineering, music, or architecture). Meeting major requirements and graduating in four years is very easy.

专业:专业的多样性方面是非常灵活的,双修、三修、四修甚至五修(甚至都没听过)这些都是可行并很常见的(除非你学了工程专业、音乐和建筑)。四年之内达到专业要求顺利毕业是很容易的。

6.Majors:The process of getting into my Bioengineering major was easy. There is no special application process when applying to the school. Although you have the choice to declare your major until your sophomore year, if you are thinking of majoring in engineering, I suggest you start early because there are lots of general requirements you need to complete in order to graduate on time.

专业:我的生物工程专业申请流程很简单。申请这个学院的时候,没什么特别的申请程序。只是你得到大二的时候才有选择专业的权力。如果你在考虑选择工程方面的专业,想准时毕业的话,我建议你早点开始做准备,因为有很多基本要求你得完成。

7.Administration: The administration generally understands student concerns well, and acts accordingly. I feel that they have our best interest in mind most of the time, however sometimes decisions are made that are more political in nature than what is really good for the student body.

校园管理:学校管理方很了解学生关心的事情,并采取相应的对策。我觉得很多时候学校方面很在意我们学生的利益,但也有时候一些决策的制定可能更只是更形式化一些,而不是真正的对学生有好处。

8.Administration: Rice uses the Honor code system. The university trusts you not to cheat. As a result of the honor code you can have take-home or unproctored tests which are nice. However, if you break the honor code Rice will be very strict. Honor code violations are arbitrated in front of the Honor Council, a student body.

校园管理:莱斯大学采用“尊重核心守则”的教育理念。学校相信你不会去欺骗人。基于这种理念,你可以参加在自己家里的考试,或者没有老师监考的考试,这真的很好。但是如果你违反了核心守则,学校对此则是非常严厉的。违反基本守则的行为将会受到学生组织——荣誉委员会仲裁。

9.Diversity: Rice is an extremely diverse campus and additionally, a very accepting campus. Students are comfortable with being themselves and are not ashamed or afraid to express themselves as they wish.

多样性:莱斯大学是一个很有多样性的学校,也是一个很有包容性的学校。这里的学生都勇敢做自己,他们不害怕也不羞于表达自己的观点。

10.Diversity: The Rice community is a very accepting community. Your ideas on alcohol, gender, sex, religion, etc. will be pretty much accepted. In terms of international students, Chinese and Korean students have their organizations that support one another and can be a bit cliquey. If you use a different language to communicate with people you know from your own country it is likely to be accepted, but in a group of mostly the same language background the non-speaker can feel a bit left out as the same language speakers already have the connection of their own community and sense of belonging.

多样性:莱斯大学就是一个很有包容性的大社区。你对于饮酒、性取向、性以及宗教等等各种方面的观点都会被很多人接受。至于国际学生,中国和韩国学生有他们自己的小圈子,他们彼此互助,有一点点排外。如果你用一种不同的语言和来自你的国家你认识的人交流的话,那能很好地被人接受。但是在由很多相同背景的人组成的群体里,那里非本土语言者会觉得有被忽略的感觉,因为讲同一语言的人们已经有了他们自己的情感联系和归宿感。

11.Athletics: I've only gone to varsity sporting events to support friends that were participating. It's not like we are bad; we won five conference championships. its just not a big part of the culture here. IM and club sports are Bae. They are great ways to make friends. The competitiveness of the residential colleges leads to tons of fun and college pride.

体育:我去参与各种体育活动只是为了支持参加比赛的朋友们。这不算是校园生活的很大一部分。IM和俱乐部活动都是很好的交友方式,住宿学院之间的比赛的竞争性激发了很多乐趣和学院荣誉感。

12.Athletics: Intramural sports between the colleges are a big part of campus life and widely participated in. Varsity sports are not as well followed, but people still have a strong sense of pride in the football and baseball teams, and athletes are well integrated with fellow students.

体育:校内学院见的体育比赛活动是校园生活的很大一部分,有很多人广泛的参与其中。但是也有很多的体育活动受众不是那么多,不过人们仍然有很强烈的荣誉感,尤其是在橄榄球和篮球比赛当中。运动员和学生能很好的互动。

13.Guys & Girls: It's absolutely whatever you want it to be. There are so many different people here with different backgrounds it's very easy to find whatever you're interested in romantically or socially.

男生女生:这里绝对是应有尽有!这里有太多具有不同生活文化背景的人,很容易就能找到让你感兴趣的人,不论是情感上还是日常社交方面都是如此。

14.Guys & Girls: Rice University girls get WAY less credit than they deserve. Ok, they are not super models, but lets face it, neither are you. It is possible to meet really cute girls here, but what really sells me on Rice girls is talking to them. Talking to them you find out about their passions and drives. You're just left like, "Wow, you are an incredible person." Experiences like that happen frequently at Rice. It is part of Rice University being so selective, everyone here is amazing.

男生女生:莱斯大学的女生没有得到应有的青睐!好吧,她们不是模特儿,让我们面对这个事实,你也不是啊!这里很容易就能遇到很靓丽的女生,但是真正让我吃惊的是和她们交流的感受。跟她们交流你会发现她们的激情和动力。你会有种感觉:“哇哦,你真是一个了不起的人!”这样的经历在莱斯大学会经常发生。这也是莱斯大学很有选择性的一个部分,每个人都很棒。

15.Guys & Girls: Rice students are friendly without exception, and I usually don't make blanket statements like that. Though many can be reserved, there are a wide spectrum of personalities from introverts to extroverts - however, a unifying theme is that everyone has hidden talents. A conversation with any Rice student will uncover amazing stories, interests, and insights.

男生女生:莱斯大学的学生无一例外都很友好,我通常说话都不那么概括性。尽管或许有些人有一点点保守,还有有各种个性类型的人,从内向型到外向型都有。但是,无一例外的是每个人都有自己的潜能。和任何一个莱斯大学的学生交流一番,就能发现这个人非同一般的经历,兴趣以及观点。

16.Campus Food: Five star chefs; the food is fantastic. If you don't like the menu at one servery, you are free to eat at any other servery, which is great. Every college is connected to a dining hall and has its own commons to eat (although some share serveries, each residential college has its own place to actually eat). The cooks are very accommodating and there are tons of options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc. They are also open to suggestions and take feedback very seriously.

校园饮食:绝对五星级别!食物超级棒。如果你不喜欢一个备餐间的食物,你可以去吃其他任何一个备餐间准备的饭,这是很好的。每个学院都和一个餐厅连接。在以前,并且都有自己的公共食堂(尽管有一些是共用备餐间,每个宿舍楼都有自己吃饭的地方)。大厨们都很随和,对素食和无谷蛋白也有很多的种类选择。他们对于一些建议也都持开放心态,会很认真对待学生们的意见反馈。

17.Campus Food: The food on campus is great and satisfying. At least it's food, but if you go off campus like in the Rice Village for dining, you would find more variety and more palatable options.

校园饮食:学校的食物很棒,很让人满意。至少那是食品。但如果你去校外吃饭,比如去莱斯小村去吃的话,你会发现那里有更多的食物种类和更可口的食物选择。

18.Campus Housing: While not all of the residential colleges are created equal in terms of housing facilities, even the "lesser" dorms are still some of the nicest I've seen. In general, the old colleges/dorms have been remodeled, and the new colleges are very nice. Rooms are large and there's plenty of space. Other colleges I've visited squeeze three people into 2/3 the space that my room,ate and I share. Also, unlike a lot of larger schools, you will usually only have a single roommate. Some dorms are organized into doubles with a shared bathroom (such as McMurtry), while others have communal bathrooms (such as Brown), and others are Suite-style with a common room (such as Weiss)

校园住宿:虽然不是所有的住宿学院在住宿设施上都一律等同,甚至会有一些“较差”的宿舍,但那依旧是我所见过是最好的房间了。总的来说,一些旧的的学院的宿舍房间都翻修过了,新学院都很好。房间都很大有很多空间。我到过其他一些学院把3个学生挤在只有我的房间2/3大的房间里!还有,不像其他一些大的学校,你通常只有一个室友。一些房间被设计成两个房间,有一个共用的洗浴间(比如,McMurtry),其他一些有公共卫生间(比如 Brown),还有一些是套间形式的,有公共房间(比如 Weiss)。

19.Campus Housing: Rice has a wonderful campus atmosphere! Most people live on campus for 3-4 years. Rice uses a college housing system similar to the house system in Harry Potter. You matriculate with a certain college and usually stay with the same college until you graduate. This system generates really friendly and close-knit college communities. Each college has a slightly different culture, government, dormitory style, and housing process.

校园住宿:莱斯大学有很棒的校园氛围!很多人在学校住了三四年。莱斯大学的住宿系统和电影哈利波特里的住宿系统相似。你被某一个学院录取,通常会直待在这同一个学院直到你毕业。这种系统营造出了真实友好又亲密的校园社区。美国学院都有一点与众不同的文化、管理、住宿风格和住宿程序等等。

20.Health & Safety: Rice University preaches about the culture of care. Students are meant to look after another's well-being. From my experience it seems true. At my first college party I drank too much and got sick. Several students with out hesitation helped me get back to my room and made sure I was ok. Since then, I always ask people at parties whether I know them or not if they are feeling well just to make sure they are fine.

健康安全:莱斯大学宣传一种互相关心的文化。学生要关心其他学生。从我的经历看这是真的。我的第一学年晚会,我喝酒喝多生病了。几个同学毫不犹豫地把我送回了我的房间,并确保我安全无恙。从此以后,我总是会在晚会上问别人一切都还好吗,不论我是不是认识他们,我只是想确保他们都平安无事。

21.Health & Safety: I feel incredibly safe on campus, though I recognize I am a very tall male and there may be others who feel differently. However, other students I have interacted with seem to find Rice as safe as I do. Rice's sexual assault policies are very clear and progressive. There are many sexual assault prevention/awareness discussions and events throughout the year, put on by both students and administration. Rice has its own very large police department and extensive security measures. The area around Rice is very affluent and nice, though a few assaults have happened near campus. As it is in the fourth largest city in the US, the campus will be more dangerous than somewhere rural.Healthcare on campus is top-notch. I had food poisoning (from somewhere far outside Houston!) and went to the student health center and they did a great job helping me. For more serious injuries, there is the world's largest medical center right across the street from campus with loads of trauma centers and Rice offers a cheap college insurance policy.The excellently maintained gym, pools and sports fields also promote health and wellness around campus.

安全健康:我在学校里感觉很安全,但我是一个很高的男性,其他的人或许不这么认为。但是,我接触到的其他学生都和我一样觉得莱斯大学很安全。莱斯大学针对防护性骚扰的策略很清晰也很有力度。每年都有很多关于预防性骚扰的交流会和一些活动,学生和学校管理方都会参加。莱斯大学有很大的校园安保部门和一系列安保措施。虽然有一些骚扰事件发生,但学校附近的地区都是繁华地区也都很不错的。由于是处在全面第四大城市,学校比一些乡下地区还是多一点危险。学校的卫生保健方面也是顶级的。我曾经有过食物中毒(在某个离休斯顿很远的地方),去了学生学生健康护理中心,他们帮了我一个大忙。对一些更严重的伤害,世界最大的医疗中心就在学校对面,那有肿瘤检查中心。莱斯大学给学生提供了很便宜的校园医疗保险。维护得很好的体育馆,游泳池,体育操场也都很好得促进了学生的身体健康。

22.Transportation: Easy to use SuperShuttle to get to one of the two airports. The Rice Shuttle makes trips to Rice Village on Friday and Saturday nights and trips to Target on Saturday afternoons. The metro system is pretty easy to navigate to get downtown or to Reliant Stadium. A lot of people have cars though, so you're likely to have a friend that has a car.

交通:乘坐超级班车去两个机场都很方便。莱斯校园班车周五和周六晚上去莱斯小村,周六下午去目的地!地铁系统也很方便,去市中心或者瑞兰特体育场也很方便。很多人都有车,所以你也可能有一个有车的朋友。

23.Transportation: Getting around campus is easy- it's a small school, and there are shuttles that run almost everywhere that you need to go, including Target and Rice Village for dinner on the weekends. Getting off campus is a bit more difficult, but we get free lift rail passes, so if something is along the metro line, then you can get there easily as well (downtown, museum district).

交通:在学校四处逛逛是很容易的——学校不大,有班车出行,几乎能到任何你需要去的地方,包括周末去就餐的目的地和莱斯小村。出校园有一点费劲,但是我们有免费通行证,所以如果有什么要去的地方是沿着地铁线的话,你很容易就能去那里(市中心和博物馆地区)。

24.Local Area: Houston is a surprisingly (for me, coming from California where I knew nothing about Texas) vibrant city with many opportunities for students: great food, Hermann Park right beside campus, and many museums and other attractions very close to campus. Public transportation is not great, basically consisting of one light rail line, but this has two stops at campus and leads downtown. Uber or Zipcar are generally used for trips to destinations not reachable by rail.

本地概况:休斯顿是一个令人惊奇的充满活力的城市(我来自加利福尼亚,对德克萨斯一无所知),对学生而言充满了机会:美味的食物,赫尔曼公园就在学校旁边,许多博物馆和其他诱人的地方都距离学校很近。公共交通不是那么好,基本由一条地铁线组成,但学校这有两个站点可以直达市中心。Uber 或者 Zipcar是很常用的出行方式,可以去地铁去不了的地方。
