Hello! My name is Sam Rabinowitz and I am a fourth year biology student. I started my time at UT in UGS and loved it so much that I try to be a cheerleader for the school in any way that I can. When I’m not up here at the front desk, you might find me at UGS Council events or helping out with the Ambassadors and Alumni Guides. For the past year, I’ve also had the opportunity to work as an undergraduate research assistant in a lab in the biology department. When I’m not somewhere on campus, I love watching The West Wing (again), attending concerts with friends, and performing one-woman productions of Hamilton in my kitchen.
Hi, my name is Ethan Roy and I am a second year mathematics major. I have played tennis for the past 13 years of my life, and like to bake in my spare time. I can without a doubt say I have perfected my chocolate chip cookie recipe. I also try to be involved in math research. Over the past summer I worked as a visiting student researcher at Rice, where I was able to work with a professor who specializes in fluid dynamics. Otherwise, between tennis, classes, and baking if I have any free time I’m usually bingeing a show on Netflix (currently Schitt’s Creek).
Hi all! This is Evana, and I'm a third-year civil engineering major from Charlotte, NC (where my adorable German Shepherd is waiting for me)! When I'm not hitting the books, you can usually find me exploring Austin or traveling on breaks. I had the amazing opportunity to study abroad in Chile this past summer, and my dream is to someday (somehow) visit Antarctica! Aside from traveling, I love working with various STEM outreach organizations and learning to finger-pick on the guitar. Thanks MAI 202 for creating such a great workplace! It's great to see all of you around!
Hello all! My name is Brittany Kalu and I am a pre-medical student graduating in the fall with my B.S. in Psychology! I transferred from UT Arlington my sophomore year, to UT and have loved it ever since. I am a part of an amazing pre-health minority organization, Black Health Professions Organization, where I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to Italy to shadow amazing doctors. While I was there, I was able to learn about the public healthcare system while being immersed in Italian culture. When I'm not thinking about Italian food, I love finding new and cool fun adventures to do in Austin! My favorite activities are Hot Yoga and binging "The Office" on Netflix.
My name is Valerie Torrealba, and I’m a third year international relations and global studies major I’m a lover of languages, traveling, and politics. For the past year, I’ve been involved on campus as a chair for the Senate of College Councils, and I’ve been a member of the co-ed spirit group, Absolute Texas, since my freshman year. Currently, I am working on pursuing a french minor as well as interning at a nonprofit that provides legal assistance to refugees here in Austin. In my free time, I like to stay active by exploring all of the fun places around the city, and making the most of the vibrant food and music scene here.
Feel free to come say hello to the friendly faces at the front desk!
