Top of the UT Tower pictured as darkened except the clock area which is illuminated white

The University of Texas at Austin Tower will darken May 6 to honor members of the university community who passed away during the past year.

The dark Tower is part of UT Remembers, an annual day of remembrance that began in 1998.

On the last day of the spring semester, families, friends, colleagues and co-workers gather to remember those who died, to reflect upon who they were, what they gave to UT Austin and what they meant to the people whose lives they touched.
