About Texas Exes | Texas Exes

On June 18, 1885, 34 new graduates of the two-year-old University of Texas founded its alumni association. Today, the Texas Exes has more than 106,000 members living all over the world. The association keeps Longhorns connected to the people and the place that changed their lives forever.


Our mission forms the basis of what we do and how we budget.


The Texas Exes is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit led by a volunteer board of directors.
