A burnt orange ribbon and text that says "UT Remembers" with an illustration of the UT Tower

The UT Tower will darken Friday, May 7 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.

With darkened lights, the UT Tower stands above the campus at night.

Held annually on the last day of the spring semester, UT Remembers honors the members of our community who have passed away in the last year. This tradition is an in-memoriam recognition of their lives, and provides a time to remember those whom we have lost and honors the impact they had on the larger university community.

So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us as we remember them.”
