The Texas Exes Paris Chapter serves the Texas Exes in and around Paris, TX, and Lamar County.  Our group exists to develop connections to the past, present, and future of UT Austin and between Texas Exes members by providing fun and meaningful involvement opportunities. Though anyone interested in supporting UT can join in, our activities are geared toward UT Austin alumni who live in the county. Visitors to the area with an interest in supporting UT Austin and meeting other UT alumni are always welcome to our activities and events.

We are a chapter of UT’s official alumni association, the Texas Exes, whose mission is to praise, promote, and protect UT Austin and its students; and to unite, inform, and involve Texas Exes members and potential members in the support of UT in particular and of education in general.

Please check our events page to find out about the excited items planned for our area. 

We are a membership-supported organization. Non-Members and friends of UT are always welcome at our events, but we hope that everyone will consider joining. It wouldn’t be Texas without the Exes!

To get in touch and get involved, please contact the Texas Exes Paris Chapter President, Katherine Hodge, at
