Thanks Day 2010

Contact Us

It takes an entire community to educate a Longhorn.

And for that we’d like to say, “Thank you.”

For current students, tuition and fees only go so far. In fact, if UT Austin operated on tuition and fees alone, classes would end on Nov. 10 – just 11 weeks into the school year.

Thankfully, UT doesn’t just run on tuition and fees, which account for just 24 percent of the overall budget. The majority – 76 percent – comes from our supporters who range from our family and friends to the state of Texas, as illustrated when you roll over each section of the longhorn below.

That’s why we want to send a big shout out to you – UT parents, alumni, donors, faculty, staff, taxpayers, state legislators, and everyone else – for helping to make our students’ education at The University of Texas possible.

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