Matthew McConaughey made sure University of Texas students had a safe ride home on Monday night.

Volunteering with SURE Walk, the Academy Award-winning actor drove students home as part of the program, which offers students companionship on the way home from campus.

Four students took a photo with McConaughey during their ride.

SURE Walk was launched by Students United for Rape Elimination and debuted last spring. It operates daily from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.

McConaughey graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1993. This isn’t the first time he’s volunteered his time — on Thanksgiving Day, he took part in Meals on Wheels.

McConaughey recently starred in “Free State of Jones” and voiced a character in “Kubo and the Two Strings.” He will voice another character in Illumination Entertainment’s upcoming animated film “Sing.” His other upcoming projects include “The Dark Tower” and “Gold.”
