Matthew McConaughey sightings, a stolen Speedway brick and the stuffed carcass of a white squirrel are required to graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. Check your Interactive Degree Audit. How close are you to graduating?
McConaughey visits UT so often it’s like he’s moved in.
what dorms does Matthew McConaughey live in @ UT ?— Kendall Kincaid (@kendall_47) October 19, 2017
But exactly how many times has he been spotted on campus during the last few years? We’ll start in 2014, because that’s as far back as current students can remember.
October 2014: McConaughey wears a blazer to receive his Distinguished Alumnus award. This is the last time we see him wear anything except a sweat-soaked t-shirt to football games.

September 2015: We’re just exiting The McConaissance. Dallas Buyers Club, True Detective, Interstellar, all those weird Lincoln car commercials: This is peak McConaughey. He doesn’t have time to wander around UT.
I've been at UT for 2 weeks where the fuck is Matthew McConaughey— m¡nor¡e (@lolminorie) September 4, 2015
November 2015: Nah, McConaughey always makes time for his alma mater. He spoke at Tejas House, odd because he was a Delt. Tejas wishes McConaughey was an alumnus so they could push the CEO of CarMax off their “Notable Alumni” web page.
Matthew McConaughey is inside the Tejas house right now. I am outside the gates of the Tejas house.. Something is wrong with this situation— babby (@clairerhardwick) November 12, 2015
June 2016: UT hires McConaughey as a professor. Or more accurately, McConaughey is bored and asks for something to do.
McConaughey teaching at UT? Bout to get on ratemyprofessor bc you deserve that pic.twitter.com/S2RxkQacG2— Breanna (@breanna_cadena) June 30, 2016
September 2016: The minute McConaughey discovers he can quote “Wolf on Wall Street” to football players is when the sightings ramp up.
August 2016: McConaughey decides to show up to the first day of class, something he almost definitely did not do while attending this University.
UT: where you can share an elevator with professors on your way to class. That just happen to be Matthew McConaughey #HookEm— Justin Jones (@justjustin42) August 25, 2016
Fall 2016: McConaughey attends almost every home game of the 2016 football season.
Matthew McConaughey is the only reason the UT won. True statement— Bryce (@swaim_) September 5, 2016
November 2016: McConaughey wanders around downtown Austin for some reason. Then stops by his class.
at some point mcconaughey will stop looking like he just left the delt house pic.twitter.com/oD2XltCedt— David Ruff (@dcarterruff) November 22, 2016
November 2016: McConaughey gives students a ride in the SureWalk golf carts.
February 2017: Oh no. Oh. No. McConaughey get political. He tells the BBC it’s "time to think about how constructive you can be because Donald Trump's our president for the next four years at least." He soons falls from UT students’ graces.
UT: Matthew McConaughey is the greatest thing to ever ha-— Morgan (@MorganBesmer) February 3, 2017
McConaughey: Its time we embrace Trump's Presidency
UT: *bursts into flames*
TUESDAY— natalie heineman (@nataliemac17) February 3, 2017
UT: "Matthew McConaughey is a god who can do no wrong."
UT: "so does Owen Wilson have to be our new god or what"
Summer 2017: McConaughey goes quiet for a little while, presumably because he found a real job. If you can consider filming box office flop “The Dark Tower” a real job.

Matthew McConaughey:— christina (@thechristinava) December 24, 2017
alternate universe in which Owen Wilson is the UT Celebrity instead of Matthew McConaughey. T-shirts that say "Wooow" are abundant. Everything is better.— LIEUTENANT DAN (@officialdani10) December 24, 2017
September 2017: Another McConaughey sighting in the communications building. And this time, his jeans are tighter than ever.
February 2018: McConaughey is spotted in BMC on his way to “teach” “class.”
Ride around in the @UTJSchool elevators often enough, and you’ll eventually share one with Matthew McConaughey. Today was my turn for that rite of passage (and Snapchat). #digitaljut pic.twitter.com/5xZS2tRaIk— Kelsey Whipple (@kelseynwhipple) February 21, 2018
I am standing in an elevator with Matthew McConaughey. This is not a drill.— alexis (@TatumAlexis) February 21, 2018
