Tower Darkens for UT Remembers
The UT Tower will darken Friday, May 10 in memory of Longhorns who died during the past year.
Except for a white cap and observation deck, all of the Tower’s levels and windows will darken as part of UT Remembers.
Held annually on the last day of the spring semester, UT Remembers gives the university community a time to gather in remembrance of students and current and retired faculty and staff who died during the past year, while also reflecting on who they were, what they gave to the university and what they meant to the people whose lives they touched.
This year’s UT Remembers started with a lowering of the flags ceremony on the Main Mall and will conclude when the sunrise lights the darkened Tower.
