From The College Fix:
The event was billed by organizers as a safe place: “Rice is and will continue to be a safe place for you.”
“You should be comfortable being yourself on this campus. Your voice is wanted, it is desired. Let’s spend a few moments locking arms, holding hands, and feel like one big family. We are one Rice,” a student organizer shouted to the crowd.
With that, roughly 150 students shuffled into a big circle, arms locked together. They stood for a moment of silence and a few chuckles before singing the school’s anthem.
