- Little p's: The Plan II first-year students' association: Little P’s is a P2 organization dedicated to the freshmen class. The purpose behind Little P’s is to encourage Plan II freshmen to become leaders in Plan II, the University and the Austin community. Every month, we have a social of some sort (in the past, we’ve gone to Amy’s Ice Cream and Slices & Ices and we’ve played Dodgeball, we’ve also gone to see the bats under the bridge!) that encourages freshmen to get to know each other as well as other P2ers. We are also the group responsible for the new Plan II tradition of the Mr. Plan II contest that was searching for the sexiest, savviest, smartest male in Plan II. We hope to continue with even greater success next year. Contacts: Alexis Allen, email@example.com; Mia Davis, firstname.lastname@example.org

Our bimonthly meetings have featured words of wisdom from the Dean of the UT Law School, a panel discussion by prominent leaders of the Texas legal community, various presentations discussing the practice of law applied to particular industries,and, of course, hallmarks of Plan II: dynamic group discussions and insightful mentoring from UT law professors.

- Society of Plan II Engineers (SP2E): The goal of the Society of Plan II Engineers (SP2E; pronounced spitooee) is to help Plan II/Engineers bridge the gap between their engineering and liberal arts education by learning from people that have created a career involving both the sciences and the arts. To this end we hold dinners with distinguished guests each semester and fireside chats with distinguished UT professors. In the past we have hosted former Governor Ann Richards, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, former Austin Mayor Will Wynn, and Mark Strama. At our firesides we have hosted Dr. Hans Mark, Professor Larry Speck and Dr. Michael Webber. We also provide guidance to our members to help them navigate the demanding Plan II/Engineering curriculum at advising coffees each semester. Contact: Zeyi Lin, email@example.com

- Plan II Art Club: If Plan II isn’t artistic relief enough from your scholastic goals, we at the P2 Art Club have plenty of outlets for your creative plugs! We organize group activities and outings to plays (Broccoli Project!), museums, and other shows about 3 times a semester. Our main event, though, is hosting the Plan II Art Show in the Spring – an open exhibit of all Plan II artistic expression.

And, as always, this isn't restricted to just P2ers so bring your friends.

PLAN2B: business experience distinctly flavored with Plan II.
- Plan II Chamber Music Society: Do you play an instrument or sing? Are you looking for fun and relaxing opportunities to perform chamber music? Look no further than the Plan II Chamber Music Society! Members form into small chamber groups of like-minded, compatible students and rehearse independently throughout the semester. Groups have the opportunity to perform in a recital at the end of each semester. Other activities include masterclasses and coaching sessions with UT Butler School of Music faculty or students, attending concerts and musicals as a group, performing for community service, and sight-reading parties with desserts on the side. It's a great opportunity to enjoy and perform music in a laid-back, close-knit group!
