The Coords

Our O-Week Coordinators (left to right): Akshat Patel, Erin Rawls, Saurabh Harohalli


Every college chooses three Coordinators to plan O-Week over spring and summer prior to the new students coming in! We work with campus-wide faculty, interest groups, and staff to make the transition to Rice as amazing and easy as possible. Some of our responsibilities include choosing the themes, pairing roommates, working in committees to create fun activities and address campus-wide issues, and planning the schedules and logistics of the week. So, we- Akshat Patel, Erin Rawls, and Saurabh Harohalli – are proud to introduce ourselves as your Brown 2017 O-Week Coordinators!!!
