Historical Note

The Student Association (SA) created the Rice Program Council (RPC) in 1971. It replaced the SA's Student Center Board, the Forum, and the Social Committee to become the official programming arm of the SA. Since its inception, RPC has managed Beer Bike, Esperanza, Rondelet, and other events. As of 2014, they plan all of the above plus Screw Your Roommate, Crush Party, various Willy Week events, and the Welcome Back Concert.
