College Representatives

RPC College Representatives serve as channels of communication between the residential colleges and RPC. They represent and communicate to the Council the ideas and opinions of their respective colleges. Additionally, college reps actively promote all RPC events to the residential colleges and Rice community as a whole.

Baker Representative: David Pichardo

David is a sophomore at Baker College, who’s planning to major in Electrical and Computer Engineering. This is his first year working at RPC as an RPC Rep for Baker, after enjoying such events as Rondelet, Esparanza, and the various, necessary study breaks that RPC has had to offer!

In his free time, you’ll catch David out in the Flag Football field, reading philosophy, or trying out new cooking recipes.

His favorite RPC event, of course, is BEEEEEER BIIIIIKE!!!!


Brown Representative: Elaine Hwang

Elaine is a sophomore from Brown College majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Anthropology. Often times she is watching college football or having karaoke sessions with friends when she should really be studying instead. Her favorite RPC event is the gingerbread house contest because you can eat the leftover frosting you don’t use.


Duncan Representative: Isabella Osuna

Isabella Osuna is a Junior from Duncan College majoring in Biochemistry and Cell Biology.  In her free time she drinks way too much caffeine but is always convinced to go on a new adventure.

Her favorite RPC event is the President and Dean’s Study Break because it gives every student a chance to de-stress before finals and have a much needed getaway.


Hanszen Representative: Elina Chen

Elina Chen is a sophomore from Hanszen College and the college representative of Hanszen this year. This is her second year at RPC. Previously, she was a member of the publicity department. As an architecture student, Elina loves art, photography, and museum hunting. She also works at the Digital Media Commons of Fondren Library. Ask her if you want any help on design/media edit. Her favorite RPC event is no doubt Beer Bike, the most exciting event all year round!


Jones Representative: Ishaan Rischie

Ishaan is a sophomore from Jones College (JIBA!). He is currently majoring Biochemistry and Molecular Biology as well as minoring in Medical Humanities, and he is also involved in cancer research at the Baylor College of Medicine. In his free time, you’ll probably see him hanging out with his friends, enjoying the amazing food options all around Houston, or making an absolute fool of himself in your local Target or HEB. His favorite RPC event is Beer Bike because no other event has the ability to unify Rice students (current and old) in our unique, quirky culture of fun. Aside from Beer Bike, he also likes Screw-Yer-Roommate since it’s such a fun way to expand your social circles and meet new people that you might never have known otherwise.
