Chief Justice

Paras Gupta

Hi Martel!

My name is Paras Gupta, and I will be your Chief Justice for the remainder of this term!

I’m looking forward towards this opportunity to serve Martel, and I’m hoping that together we can help Martel continue to be the fun and safe college that we’ve all come to love! Martel’s Culture of Care is very important to me, as is the safety and enjoyment of each and every one of you, and I believe that we can make it the strongest of all the Colleges!

I’m a rising Junior studying Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering with hopes of attending medical school after graduating. Rice isn’t too far from home for me, I was born and raised here in Houston, Texas in a suburb known as Cypress. I’ve spent the last year as an Assistant Justice, and have recently become a Rice Health Advisor, intending on applying the training I’ve received towards promoting Rice’s culture of care. Finally, I’m one of Martel’s Beer Bike and O-Week Coordinators this year and I also play bassoon for the Campanile Orchestra!

Most importantly, my phone number is 832-691-0261, having this number saved is extremely important as you’ll need to be in contact with me if there’s ever a situation/ emergency involving RUPD, EMS, noise complaints etc. and you will need it to register for private parties, and crawl stops. Besides the registration form, all I need is a single text from you and you’ll be good to go!

Again, my phone number is 832-691-0261, and if I don’t respond to a text in an emergency, please please call me right away!

As CJ, it’s my job to ensure that Martel is always a safe environment, and enforce the laws written in our Constitution. I consider myself a student liaison for the alcohol policy and Dean Gorman, and with my team of Assistant Justices intend to best educate Martelians about these policies. By cultivating a safe environment and a strong Culture of Care, I hope to maximize the enjoyment of all Martelians!

Lastly, something that is very important to me is communication, feel free to reach out to me whenever if you’d like to discuss this role as I’m always more than happy to talk to any of you about this or anything!
