    In the comments section below, write your favorite university tag line: Hook ‘em, Horns; What Starts Here Changes the World or make up your own. Your comment will act as your submission to the contest. We’ll take all of the names in the comments section below, and draw one lucky winner out of a hat.

    Hurry! We’re only accepting comments received from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (CDT) today (Thursday, May 13).

    Stay tuned to The University of Texas at Austin page on Facebook for details on next week’s ticket giveaway to “Mike Daisey: The Last Cargo Cult.”

    About the Dec. 10 show: For the last 20 years bestselling author, journalist and food activist Michael Pollan has written about the places the human and natural worlds intersect, challenging the way Americans think about eating. Central Texans are increasingly moving toward healthful, locally produced and sustainable food options, and Pollan has been at the front of the movement. In books such as “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” and “In Defense of Food,” Pollan demonstrates how difficult it is to navigate today’s complex world of food production. Read more about “An Evening with Michael Pollan” on the Texas Performing Arts Web site.

    Texas Performing Arts 2010-11 subscriptions are now available. As a season subscriber you’ll have the opportunity to experience a world-class and diverse season of performances and benefits, such as preferred seating and subscription discounts. For the first time, Texas Performing Arts is offering subscribers two new options: a parking upgrade package that provides a 50 percent discount on parking, or for just a few dollars more, a special introductory rate for first-time donors to join Texas Inner Circle, which now includes parking.

    The fine print: The Office of Public Affairs will notify the winner on Monday, May 17. When you submit your comment, make sure to provide your e-mail address. We’ll use that for notification purposes only. Comments submitted before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m. (CDT) on Thursday, May 13 will not be considered for the contest. Tickets will be held at will call the day of the performance. Participation in the May 7 or May 12 contests doesn’t exclude you from participating in our future ticket giveaways.

      Is there a rallying cry for the thinkers and doers of tomorrow? A motto that sums up their passion for creativity and their pursuit of discovery? Sure there is: "Hook 'em, Horns"-W.C
