Alumnus of the year. Matthew McConaughey offered a couple of lucky University of Texas students a safe ride home on Monday, November 28.
The college’s student government shared a photo of the Oscar winner driving students in a golf cart on their Facebook page on Monday night with the caption: “Longhorns take care of each other, and it’s ‘safe’ to say Matthew McConaughey agrees. Don’t forget to use SURE Walk when traveling home late at night; you never know who might pick you up! #BeSafe #SafeChats.”
SURE Walk, according to its website, is a safe-ride program that runs from 7 p.m. until 2 a.m. every day “in order to protect the students, provide peace of mind when studying late at night, and ensure safety for all.”
McConaughey in the driver’s seat was surely a surprise for the lucky four students who got a lift home from him.
“Lets use sure walk everyday now,” one student commented on the Facebook post, while another jokingly added: “Hope nobody needs to turn left. Because that golf cart is only going alright, alright, alright…”
The Dallas Buyers Club actor was on campus for the school’s football game over the weekend. McConaughey graduated from the University of Texas in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree in radio, television and film and regularly returns to speak to students and attend sports games.
