Happy Birthday Willy

William Marsh Rice had the pleasure to be born on Pi Day back in 1816. Usually, the campus celebrates both his birthday and this very important holiday simultaneously with events like passing out pies at the statue. Sadly, the campus is now on spring break, so there will be no festivities.

This pictures hearkens back to an earlier time when Willy got his due.
