Rice University SOAR Program for Rising Seniors

Seeking Opportunities at Rice (SOAR).

Rising seniors are encouraged to apply for this expenses-paid program.

SOAR is a great opportunity to gain insight into Rice by staying overnight on campus with current undergraduates, attending classes, meeting with professors and alumni, and experiencing campus life at Rice. This program coincides with Discover Rice, our fall Open House event, so SOAR participants benefit from the activities planned for both on-campus events.

Each SOAR participant is hosted by a current Rice student, so there is no lodging expense.

All are welcome to apply, however the primary goal is to provide this opportunity to students for whom visiting Rice might not otherwise be possible or would present a financial hardship.

To apply, students must submit 1) A completed SOAR Application; 2) Unofficial high school transcripts; and 3) An unofficial copy of their SAT or ACT exam scores. The deadline for SOAR applications and supporting documents is Friday, August 18, by 11:59 p.m. CT. Space is limited, so interested students are encouraged to submit the application materials as soon as possible.

See the website for more information:

Logging Your Hours in X2Vol

Log in to Naviance to access X2Vol.
 

Community Service Hours must be logged in X2Vol to earn a community service cord for graduation. Community Service is not required for graduation.

Deadlines to stay on track:

Class of 2018 – must have 100 hours logged in X2Vol by January 1st with a plan to complete and log the last 20 hours by March 1st

Class of 2019 and thereafter - must have 120 hours logged in X2Vol by January 1st of senior year with a plan to complete and log the last 20 hours by March 1st

All hours must be verified by April 1st of the senior year.  It is the student’s responsibility to follow up with the sponsor/verifier.  

Once hours are verified, hours will be reviewed/approved at the beginning of the school year and at least once a month thereafter.  A final notification of all approved hours will be delivered to students by mid April.

Guidelines: Students may not receive any form of payment or compensation for the service performed. Parents/Guardians may not sign to verify hours. Community service should be done primarily to benefit others in the community at large, and should be something outside of the student’s normal course of action. The final approval will be with the committee.

The following may not count toward service hours:
 Duties associated with an elected school office that should be carried out in the normal course of
duty for that office
 Family obligations (babysitting, caring for other family members or friends)
 Duties performed in association with a student’s employment
 Tutoring a friend (study groups, proof-reading a friend’s paper, studying for an exam)
 Compulsory community service
The following are examples of activities that may count toward service hours:
 Volunteer duties associated with a church or other charitable organization
 Boy Scout / Girl Scout service hours
 Highway clean-up
 Blood drives (including giving blood)
 Structured tutoring (such as of younger students, adult education, literacy programs, citizenship
programs)
 Service hours honored by NHS, Student Council, Key Club, Inter-Act, or other service club on campus.

 If you have any technical difficulties with X2Vol over the summer, please gather your documentation and see Mrs. Phelan at the beginning of the school year for assistance.

Visit Official SAT Practice

Research shows students who prepare for the SAT using Official SAT Practice see substantial improvement in their scores. Twenty hours of Official SAT Practice is associated with an average 115-point increase from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT, nearly double the average gain compared to students who don’t use Official SAT Practice.

The data also show we’re making promising progress toward creating a more level playing field for students. Score gains persist across various genders, races, ethnicities, and parental education levels. And, like all Khan Academy resources, Official SAT Practice is absolutely free.
