Did I purchase my brick through Texas Parents or Texas Exes?
Texas Parents and Texas Exes (The University of Texas at Austin’s Alumni Association) are two separate entities. Both sell a type of brick that is laid on campus each year. Texas Exes sells Tiles with uniform engraving which are placed around the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center while Texas Parents sells Bricks with customizable inscriptions which are placed in front of the Student Services Building. If you are unsure which you purchased, please call our office.
My student is not graduating this year. Should I purchase a Brick Paver now or wait?
We encourage you to order a Brick Paver the year your student will graduate as there could be changes in the customized inscription between the time you purchased and your student’s graduation (e.g. change of major or year graduated). You are also able to purchase a Brick Paver for someone who has already graduated, regardless of the year.
