Eunice Iyalho
Plan II & History
UTeach-Liberal Arts Program
Class of 2020

Howdy! My name is Eunice and I’m a third year student studying Plan II and History. In addition to my two majors, I am in the UTeach-Liberal Arts Program and am getting a certificate in Children and Society from the Bridging Disciplines Program. From the first day, my Plan II classes started to dramatically shape me. Thanks to World Lit, I broke from the confines of the 18th-20th century Western European/U.S. literary sphere. We read ancient texts and modern graphic novels and nearly everything in-between. I started to reflect on what it means to be a citizen of the world and it wasn’t enough to just read foreign news or have superficial knowledge of different countries. Read more about Eunice here.

Rahul Das
Plan II, Business Honors & Marketing
Certificate in Applied Statistical Modeling
Class of 2021

Hi friends! My name is Rahul Das, and I am junior here at UT majoring in Plan II, Business Honors, and Marketing, with a certificate in Applied Statistical Modeling. I know what you’re thinking – does he have time to do anything else besides schoolwork? Surprisingly, I do! I challenge myself academically because I’m terribly curious and love to learn. Fun fact: my junior year English teacher in high school imposed a daily question quota on me because of how many questions I had. However, it was my inquisitive nature that drew my attention to Plan II. A program that brings together intellectually curious students to discuss the most thought-provoking questions we face in today’s society – count me in! Read more about Rahul here.

Christina Rios
Plan II & pre-med
Class of 2020

My name is Christina Rios, and I am an incoming third-year student in the Plan II Honors program at UT Austin. A purely Plan II student with a focus in Pre-Medical Studies, I entered UT believing it would be difficult to integrate my interests in the sciences, literature, and international affairs with my already heavy academic load. After spending merely a year as a Plan II student, however, I found it to be more than possible to explore all of my academic interests and more through the incredibly diverse opportunities that being a Plan II student provides.

Luis Roa Santoyo
Plan II, Mexican American and Latina/o Studies & Sustainability Studies
Rapoport Service Scholar, MALS Paredes Fellow & Skaaren Climate Scholar
Class of 2022

Hello! My name is Luis Roa Santoyo, and I am an incoming second-year studying Plan II, Mexican American and Latina/o Studies, and Sustainability Studies. I am from Arlington, Texas and have lived there my whole life. Coming to UT was a major shock, and I still remember the fear I felt at orientation and in my first month here. The first organization I joined was the Queer and Trans People of Color Agency, and I quickly found my group of people. With focus on radical community care and activism work, my passion for serving my communities was cemented. I dropped my Communication major and added on two more. It felt like coming home.

Joe Cozby
Plan II & Petroleum Engineering Honors
Class of 2020

My name is Joe Cozby, and I’m a senior studying Plan II and Petroleum Engineering. Despite my time-consuming engineering coursework, Plan II has been anything but “just my other major” since arriving at UT three years ago. The classes I have taken have been my favorites, pushing my writing and critical thinking skills as well as my interests and curiosities. But what really makes Plan II special are the people; whether it’s interesting teachers or great friends and classmates, I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get to know an amazing group of people with diverse interests and backgrounds, who are also a lot of fun.
