Silver Spurs - Handlers & Caretakers of BEVO
Hook 'em and Never Say Die
Silver Spurs is the honorary student service organization responsible for the care and transportation of BEVO, The University of Texas longhorn steer mascot. Since our founding in 1937, we have provided over 2,500 campus leaders with the opportunity to give back to our school and community through philanthropic endeavors associated with BEVO. Whether you are here as a prospective new member, an active Spur, an alumni looking to reconnect or a fan interested in learning more about your mascot, we're happy you stopped by and hope you find everything you're looking for on our newly renovated website.
The Silver Spurs Mission
The primary purpose of the Silver Spurs Alumni Association is to support:
- scholarships of the University of Texas at Austin;
- the University of Texas at Austin outreach programs such as the Neighborhood Longhorns Program, an education incentive program that tutors local Austin area youth in 3rd through 8th grade; and
- expenses associated with the University of Texas mascot known as BEVO.
Silver Spurs Alumni Association is a separate entity from the Texas Exes. Membership in the Texas Exes does not translate to membership in Silver Spurs Alumni Association.
