The Nautilus Society, established in 2014, honors donors who have given consistently to the College of Natural Sciences and provided invaluable support to academic and student life. When you become a Nautilus Society member, you join a group of dedicated alumni and friends whose generosity is indispensable to our ongoing success and growth.
The spiral shape of the Nautilus shell suggests that it can keep growing forever. There is no design for a "final" chamber - the creature must keep building new chambers for as long as it lives. Like the Nautilus itself, the Nautilus Society represents continued growth and innovation across the College through philanthropy.
How to Become a Member
Donors become part of the Nautilus Society at their five-year giving mark and generosity will be commemorated as you reach new milestones, every five years. Through the Nautilus Society, we gratefully acknowledge your continuing commitment to The University of Texas at Austin and the College of Natural Sciences.
There are many opportunities for Nautilus Society members to engage with the College and with our students. From listening to a talk on campus to serving as a judge on the Undergraduate Research Forum or being a guest speaker to discuss career paths, CNS is happy to help you find the right path to getting involved.
Below are a few ways to connect with CNS:
- Attend a Star Party with the Department of Astronomy
