Imagine the look of surprise when a Longhorn orders a safe ride home after a long night of studying and Austin’s most famous resident shows up in a golf cart.
Matthew McConaughey volunteered with Meals on Wheels on Thanksgiving, but decided to keep rolling on the good deeds this holiday season by helping out his alma mater.
The Texas Ex joined student volunteers in the SURE Walk program to give those staying late on campus some company on their way home.
The Student Government program, in which “SURE” stands for Students United for Rape Elimination, offers Longhorns who don’t want to walk home alone a male and female companion to walk with. Since its inception, the program has expanded with the help of various other student organizations to multiple locations across the 40 Acres, and even acquired some wheels to transport students faster.
SURE Walk operates from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Sunday and “SURE Walkers” can be requested by phone or email. For more information, check out the SURE Walk Facebook page.
