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.
If you, unlike “Saturday Night Live” star Leslie Jones, have not been invited to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio thanks to your fire takes on Twitter, fear not. Austin has sent its very spirit to South America to watch Michael Phelps scowl and win.
That’s right, right, right. Matthew McConaughey to the rescue.
According to USA Today, the “Free State of Jones” star is attending the games in person, and photographers snapped some shots of the actor taking in the Olympic swimming events. Since we know McConaughey is proud to be from Texas, keep an eye out to see if he shows up to root for Lone Star gymnast Simone Biles. And of course, there are plenty of Longhorns to hobnob with in Rio right now, too.
Because we have access to photo wire services and you don’t, we’ve collected some choice McConaughey pictures to get you in the Team U.S.A. spirit. Enjoy.
Oh, and what’s this? McConaughey owns a stars-and-stripes-patterned “hook ‘Em” T-shirt? And he brought it to the Olympics? God bless America.
