The Standard: It all ends here


By Julius Lujano ‘22

My experience at Rice was a unique one compared to others that have graduated. The biggest difference in my experience at Rice is the obvious one.

Covid hit in my sophomore year.  So in reality, I have been in the school for only 3 years if you account for the half-year in quarantine and the half-in, half-out school schedule from last year.  Despite my shortened time at Rice, I believe I was able to have the full experience.

I attended the sports games, competed for the track and field team, and made many great friends during my time at Rice. […]

The series of games started with “Lego Star Wars: The Game.” This game covered episodes one through three. Next, the “Lego Star Wars II: The […]

The Standard: Time to Run Ugly


By Julius Lujano ‘22

The Brother Rice track season has started, and it is time for some great performances. The track and field team has many returning members and added more to the great roster.

Despite this deep roster, the missing presence of the large group of seniors who graduated will be felt throughout the team. Many people will have to step up and take the lead to ensure an eventful   season. 

The current team is lacking a large senior group with most of the athletes being underclassmen.  This is not a problem because the […]

The Standard: What is The German Club?


By Julius Lujano ‘22

Come for the coffee, stay for the klatsch. The German Club, also known as Kaffeeklatsch is a club that has been around for many years but is not very well-known by the student body.

One stipulation many students believe is that you must be a German student to join the German Club. This is completely false. Anyone can join the club no matter what language class they take.

What happens in the German Club? Doc Luxem, the club adviser, brings different types of strudel and coffee into the classroom. For those who don’t know, strudel is a German layer pastry […]
