first_imgAddThis ShareCONTACT: LINDSEY FIELDER PHONE: 713-348-6772 E-MAIL: [email protected] PBS’ ROADTRIP NATION TO VISIT RICE UNIVERSITY Documentary seeks student teams to take on the open road in a neon green RV The neon green Roadtrip Nation RV will be parked on the Rice University Campus Tuesday, April 5, from 1 to 5 p.m. to encourage students to make the future their own. Teaming up with the Rice Career Services Center, the Roadtrip Nation team will park its signature big, green RV in front of Rice Memorial Center to encourage Rice students to apply to join one of their sponsored trips for the PBS documentary ”Roadtrip Nation: Destination Unknown” or to take their own career road trips and discover their own personal life paths. Rice is one of only two universities the team plans to visit in Texas. The Behind the Wheel program selects student teams from universities across the country to hit the road each summer to interview industry leaders across the country. Roadtrip Nation is on the road with the students to film the journey. Interviews and experiences from the road trips are then shared in books and documentaries, creating a for-students-by-students social movement that exposes the next generation to all the different ways to build their lives. The career center at Rice is sponsoring an afternoon cookout on campus to welcome the Roadtrip Nation team. An information workshop will be presented in the RMC at 7 p.m. For more information about Roadtrip Nation see: http://www.roadtripnation.com . ###last_img read more
