7. The Texas Exes


The Texas Exes, established as the Ex-Students' Association in 1885, is one of the largest self-governed alumni organizations in the country. The association provides news and information about the University to its 75,000 members, raises money for scholarships and teaching awards, promotes University activities, and offers benefits to members interested in specific University programs.

In 2002, the Texas Exes awarded $2.4 million in scholarships to more than eight hundred students. Many of these students were freshmen who received scholarships from Texas Exes chapters across the United States. Each year, freshman scholars chosen from the top ranks of their high school classes bring the highest academic achievements and standards to the University.

News of the University reaches members of the association through The Alcalde, a bimonthly magazine. The Texas Exes provide lifetime learning opportunities through Flying Longhorn tours to all parts of the world, annual Alumni College seminars on campus, Alumni Campus Abroad programs, use of the University libraries, and University of Texas Press book discounts. Discounts on services and merchandise and a membership directory are available to members. The association's Texas Exes Student Chapter provides Camp Texas for entering freshmen, career contacts and internships for students, and many opportunities for involvement. These activities help build students' leadership skills and sense of loyalty to the University. The association also provides career services for alumni, including job listings, a resume database, career workshops, individual consulting, and a network of alumni advisers.

The Texas Exes' home on campus is the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center, which stands on San Jacinto Boulevard across from Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Facilities include a banquet hall, offices, meeting rooms, and parking. The building is named for Lila B. Etter and John P. Harbin. Etter, whose bequest to the University financed much of the original structure in 1965, was the daughter of the University's first president, Leslie Waggener. Harbin is a distinguished alumnus and past president of the Texas Exes. His gift provided site preservation, development, and landscaping.

The University depends on the time and talents of Texas Exes members to support and carry out many of its programs. Membership enables alumni to maintain a lifelong connection to the University. More information is available at the Texas Exes Web site, by phone at (512) 471-8839, or by e-mail at
