On non-UT programs, Jessica Boles, Electrical Engineering, will be studying Spanish language and culture in Alicante, Spain, and Zoe Johnson, Chemical Engineering, will be taking general studies at the University of Adelaide, Australia.

All will be participating in the Outreach blog, so fellow students can share their experiences.
