UT has a well-known celebrity that will be teaching on campus! Matthew McConaughey is now part of the faculty at the University of Texas at Austin. He accepted to join the faculty as the new film professor. The University of Texas at Austin went in the right direction of hiring the Oscar-winning actor. After all, Matthew McConaughey has had hands-on experience in the film industry.

I honestly give props to the students that will be taking his classes. If I were a student of his, I would NOT be able to focus. I remember the time I got to see his house when visiting my friend in Austin. She only lived a few blocks away from his house in Westlake Hills. The day I arrived she was showing me around her neighborhood. Then, of course, our luck as we're driving around he was leaving his house! I totally freaked out just as much as my friend did.
