Did you know that if The University of Texas at Austin had to function on tuition dollars alone, it would have to shut down during the first week of November each year? Because of the generosity of donors we are able to continue providing a world-class education to our students.

As a way to say THANK YOU for these gifts, The University of Texas at Austin has dedicated a special day to show our appreciation – UT Thanks Day. With this event we want to spread awareness throughout the Longhorn Nation and thank our treasured donors.

Please take a moment to share your story below.

Where would you be without UT? Why are you thankful for your education? What would you like to say to the University’s generous donors who have helped ensure that UT remains a first-class University?

Our favorite stories may appear on our website and in social media for our donors and the entire Longhorn Nation to see! Keep checking back for updates about UT’s Thanks Day and stories from other students.

Since so many people make a Longhorn education possible, we want to send a big shout-out to you – UT parents, alumni, donors, faculty, staff, taxpayers, state legislators, and everyone else – for playing a role in our students’ education at The University of Texas.

With support from so many sources, it really does take an entire community to educate a Longhorn.
