The Aegean Club is the Hellenic interest club of Rice University. The club was founded in September 1995. Its scope is to bring together students and faculty members from Rice University, interested in Hellenic culture. Students from the greater Houston area are also welcome in this club. The activities of the club include luncheons every first Sunday of each month, occasional meetings of the members and celebrations of the major Hellenic holidays such as the coming of a New Year, the anniversary of the Hellenic Revolution on the 25th of March, the Easter, the aniversary of the defiance of the Italian conquerors during WWII on the 28th of October and, of course, Christmas.

The constitution of the club can be read here. You may also want to see a picture of some of the club's members.
