Need a lift? Matthew McConaughey seen driving students home at Texas alma mater

Matthew McConaughey has taken college-alumni relations to a whole new level, with the Oscar-winning actor seen driving some University of Texas at Austin students home after dark.

A photo shared on social media early Tuesday and a video shared Wednesday shows the popular, jovial actor volunteering with his former school’s SURE (Students United for Rape Elimination) Walk program. The initiative offers students a companion for late-night trips home from campus.

“Always use @SUREWalk when walking home from campus at night… you never know who will be driving!” read the post from the university’s student government.

McConaughey — star of films like Dallas Buyers Club, Interstellar, The Lincoln Lawyer and Dazed and Confused — graduated from UT-Austin in 1993 with a Bachelor’s degree in radio, television and film. He’s been seen cheering for the school’s Longhorns football team and even visiting the players during practice in recent years. 

This past spring and fall, McConaughey has also been helping to teach an advanced filmmaking seminar alongside professor Scott Rice and director Gary Ross, who helmed 2012’s The Hunger Games and McConaughey’s last film, 2016’s Free State of Jones.
