What is the LA Texas Exes?

The Texas Exes Los Angeles Chapter is the official chartered chapter of Texas Exes (formerly The Ex-Students’ Association of The University of Texas) in the Los Angeles area. It is a volunteer run organization whose mission is to create opportunities for fellowship and meaningful alumni involvement for Texas Exes members while carrying out association programs at the local level, and raising money to provide scholarships for local area students to attend the University of Texas.

How do I become a member of the LA Texas Exes?

Since the LA Texas Exes is the official chartered chapter of the Texas Exes (formerly The Ex-Students’ Association of The University of Texas), membership in the Texas Exes automatically makes you a member of your local chapter. Chapter membership is also determined by zip code, so please make sure your address is current with the Texas Exes. To update your address and/or check your membership status please click here. But it’s not just joining the Texas Exes that makes you a member. Your participation in Chapter events is also important! You will get out what you put into the Chapter.

How do I know if I am a member?

All Texas Exes members receive the alumni magazine Alcalde and local event post cards. If you do not receive the Alcalde or any local event post cards, it is for one of two reasons:

  • Texas Exes does not have your most recent address, or
  • You are not a current Texas Exes member. Please visit the membership section to update your address, check your membership status, or join the Texas Exes.

Do I have to be a member to attend events?
No, you do not have to be a member to attend events, but members do receive discounted ticket prizes and occasional freebies. Official membership in the Texas Exes also financially supports the LA Texas Exes through communication expenses and more.
Where do you watch football games and other sporting events?

We have two official game watching locations in the LA area

What different programs do the LA Texas Exes have?
