Cheers To The Newest Texas Exes (Slideshow)

The champagne glasses have been raised, and the fireworks have been shot off—Commencement 2011 was this weekend.

We here at The Alcalde and within the larger Texas Exes staff had the fun of watching all the revelry at the Alumni Center’s two-day Commencement open house, otherwise known as the Great Texas Exit.

The corks were popped on 900 bottles of champagne that grads and their families could use for toasting. Endless bags of popcorn and cups of candy were enjoyed. Bevo made a cameo, and Hook ‘Em was in the building posing for pictures.

And oh yes—we also signed up bundles of people to be Life Members of the Texas Exes. (A $200 new grad discount on Life Membership didn’t hurt. And although that promotion is over, the Class of 2011 can still win an Apple iPad 2 by sharing their favorite aspects of campus on a big UT bucket list—click here.)

Check out the above slideshow by Texas Exes Web wizard Scott Paull to see the pride and happiness we saw. Cheers to the newest University of Texas alumni!
