We are closely monitoring updates from Rice, C-USA, and the scientific community regarding COVID-19, and we are developing our plans in line with the safety protocols and best practices established by these authorities. The safety of our members is our top priority! We are working hard to ensure that we can have safe in-person experiences this semester, as well as high-quality virtual experiences for MOBsters who are unable or do not feel comfortable joining us on campus at this time.

The MOB truly takes Rice’s spirit of unconventional wisdom to heart and to the extreme—we’re used to thinking outside the box, and no matter what, we’re going to find a way to allow our members to keep music and community in their lives.
