Establish your UT e-mail account.
- The University considers email an official form of communication and the UT/Google account the best kind of account to use. So, it's best to use it as your official e-mail address for all university business.
- This is an account that you can keep AFTER graduation! It's a Google account.
- Show the world you're a Longhorn with your email@example.com email address! http://utmail.utexas.edu/
- Be sure to update Plan II (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you claim your UT/Google address (or if you change your email, or permanent address) at any time.
- You do not have to change to a UT account if you already use gmail, yahoo or another service you like, although we do recommend the utexas accounts.
- If you have an email associated with your high school however, be sure to claim another email, and notify me (email@example.com) ASAP.
Join the Plan II Class of 2017 FaceBook group. You know you want to...
- Request membership at https://www.facebook.com/groups/p2classof2017/. It's a closed "student group/academic group" for entering first-year Plan II students. Your future Plan II compatriots are already getting together in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas—via the Class of 2017 Facebook Group. Don't be left out! Folks are also organizing dinner get-togethers the night before Orientation sessions. Get to know the people who will be your best friends for the next few years, and often for life.
- There's also a regular (using the term loosely) Plan II students' FaceBook group. Join today at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/5873662185/
Plan II Freshman Convocation 2013, 7:00 pm Tuesday, September 3, 2013
Convocation is a required event for all Plan II Honors First Year students. (The only accepted excuses for missing Convocation are scheduled UT classes and Texas Exes Scholarship Award dinners.)
The Plan II director, Professor Michael Stoff, special guest speakers and Plan II Students Association co-presidents address the students and welcome everyone to Plan II Honors. Representatives from all the Plan II Honors student organizations (from the Broccoli Project drama group to the Undecided news blog) will be there to help you get involved and busy.
The Convocation will begin at 7:00 pm. Most World Literature cohorts will have dinner together prior to Convocation (about 5:30 pm) so count that in your time commitment for the evening.
Plan II Freshman Getaway 2013 :: Friday, September 6, 2013
Entering first-year students, Plan II peer advisers P2SA officers and Plan II staff travel off campus for a killer BBQ dinner (with veggie options),swimming, water-balloon battle, piñata, a Shakespeare performance, volleyball and other games. Shady Springs has big beautiful oaks and a lush lawn. They have a spring on the property so even when we are in "extreme" drought conditions, the grass is soft and green. There's a big "party barn," so even if it's rainy, there's plenty of room for fun.
It's quite a bargain at $60. $30 of the charge is for the Getaway (transportation, food, beverages, Shakespeare and fun); the other $30 pays for a LIFETIME membership in the Plan II Students' Association (P2SA).
Mail in the form(s) and check to the Plan II Honors office or bring the three forms and a check for $60 (or cash) with you to Orientation:
