The Alcalde, founded in 1913 and pronounced “all-call-day,” is the official publication of the Texas Exes. Penned for alumni and friends of The University of Texas, this award-winning magazine is published six times a year and mailed to the proud members of the Texas Exes.
The magazine aims to keep Exes connected to the university by providing accurate, useful, and interesting information, in print and online. Our editorial policy is nonpartisan. We do, however, openly advocate for higher education and report on topics that relate to the university or higher education in general from the point of view of informed supporters.
