UT Shines Bright Because of You

Thanks Day 2017
Whether attending on scholarship, being inspired by some of the worldโ€™s greatest faculty, or getting unparalleled hands-on learning opportunities, every Longhorn benefits from philanthropy in some way.

Thank you for joiningย us in celebrating the amazing donors who help make UT shine bright!

UT Thanks Day is an annual celebration, hosted by The Donor Relations Team, honoring donors who create so many opportunities for our students, and because of their support, what starts here changes the world.

Thank you for joining us on November 15, 2017 for our UT Thanks Day celebration and for helping us say a big Texas โ€œThank Youโ€ to our donors!
