RICE Magazine is a student publication dedicated to the exploration and understanding of Asian culture and current events. RICE's goal is to promote a greater appreciation of Asian histories, traditions, and contemporary affairs. By crafting engaging, informative articles on any topic from pop culture to politics, we hope to open up the different worlds of Asia to our readers.


RICE is currently recruiting for writers and editors for its Fall 2016 publication. If you wish to write an article, story, song or poem about Asia, or have any photographs or art of the continent you would like to share, please do send it to us for publication! You do not have to be Asian to write or edit for us-any one is welcome to join RICE's team!

If you're interested in becoming either an editor or a writer for RICE, please send an e mail to our editor in chief Christopher James at cjl253@cornell.edu

Want to get paid for eating on campus?

Sign up for Cornell Dining's Mystery Shopper Program!


Each shopper is assigned three "shops" in different eateries during the course of each semester, and after dining, completes an online questionnaire regarding their visit. Each shopper then gets paid (in BRBs) $10 for each retail shop visit (ie. Bear Necessities, Libe Café) and $12 for each dining hall visit.


Mystery shoppers must complete a brief training session prior to their assignments.

We are excited to present the Big Red Shuttle, Cornell's first free late-night transportation service for students who need a safe ride home.


Initially, the Big Red Shuttle provided students with rides during exam periods. However, the need for additional means of late-night transportation has become clear. Now, the Big Red Shuttle is no longer an academic-only resource, but one that provides timely and free transportation to Cornell students everywhere in need of a safe ride home.


Starting this Friday, 10/14 , the Big Red Shuttle will run a 20-minute route every Friday and Saturday night from 12am-3am with a professional driver and two student aids trained by Cayuga's Watchers.


To learn more, please see the poster below. Check out our website at www.cornellbigredshuttle.com. Have questions? Feel free to drop us a note at cornellbigredshuttle@gmail.com.
