    Actor Matthew McConaughey is once again showing his love for his alma mater, this time giving some students at the University of Texas a ride home.

    McConaughey recently surprised the group of students by showing up in a golf cart to give them a ride.

    UT's SURE Walk program program, which stands for Students United for Rape Elimination, offers volunteers to walk, or drive, students home from campus every day of the week between 7 p.m. and 2 a.m.

    The University of Texas Student Government posted a picture of the actor and students on its Facebook page Monday with the the caption: "Longhorns take care of each other, and it's 'safe' to say Matthew McConaughey agrees..."

    In June, UT announced on social media that McConaughey would be teaching a film course -- which consisted of taking 30 students behind the scenes of "The Free State of Jones" through recorded videos, the university also said he would make at least one visit to campus for the class.

    The 1993 Texas grad has a home in Austin and can often be seen on the sidelines at Longhorns football games.
