Matthew McConaughey gives golf-cart ride home to stu­dents

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

AUSTIN, TEXAS >> Matthew McConaughey is mak­ing sure some col­lege stu­dents at his alma mater get home all right, all right, all right.

The Os­car win­ner took a turn be­hind the wheel of a golf cart on the Univer­sity of Texas cam­pus Mon­day night to raise aware­ness about a pro­gram to en­sure stu­dents don’t have to walk home alone.

The univer­sity’s stu­dent govern­ment posted a video show­ing stu­dents’ de­lighted re­ac­tion to see­ing the ac­tor pull up. McConaughey also took time out to pose for self­ies on cam­pus.

Stu­dent body Pres­i­dent Kevin Hel­gren says the stunt prompted a big re­ac­tion on­line and he’s hop­ing it en­cour­ages more stu­dents to use the ser­vice be­cause “you never know who’s go­ing to pick you up.”

McConaughey is a 1993 Texas grad­u­ate and lives in Austin.
