Light the Tower: 2022 Commencement

The UT Tower will shine with burnt orange lights and the number “22” on its sides for two nights in a row to celebrate this years graduates.

The Tower will first turn orange during the university wide Commencement celebration on Saturday, May 21 and will again shine in the same special lighting configuration on Sunday, May 22.

The last time the Tower displayed “22” on its sides and was drenched in burnt orange lighting, the Class of 2022 was gathered on the Main Mall in 2018 for the Gone to Texas celebration welcoming the incoming students to the Forty Acres.
