One hundred years ago, the first Rice University students made their way to a tiny cluster of Spanish revival buildings surrounded by dirt and pre-air conditioning Houston weather. A century later, HIWI: Rice looks back at iconic images from the school's first 100 years.
The book is the third from the people behind the Houston: It's Worth It campaign and encouraged photo submissions from alumni and community members.
Here are some of the striking images captured in the book.
