The UT Tower will shine with burnt-orange lights and “18” displayed on its sides to honor the Class of 2018 and this year’s graduates on both Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20.
The Tower will turn orange during the university-wide commencement celebration May 20 and will have the same lighting configuration the following night.
This year, the university will honor 9,256 graduates. Convocations, during which colleges and schools recognize students individually, began Friday and continue up to the university-wide commencement celebration. Vice Adm. Raquel C. Bono, M.D., director of the Defense Health Agency (DHA), will deliver the keynote address during the 135th Spring Commencement.
