AUSTIN, Texas—May 3 will be a day of remembrance at The University of Texas at Austin honoring members of the university community who died in the previous year.
The UT Remembers events will begin at 9 a.m. with lowering of the flags to half-staff on the Main Mall. Families and friends participating in the ceremony will be provided a hospitality room — the Texas Union Governor’s Room, 3.116, during the day.
A memorial ceremony at 2:30 p.m. in the Quad Courtyard will include the reading of names of more than 120 members of the university community who will be remembered by their families, friends, colleagues and co-workers attending the event known as UT Remembers. The Quad Courtyard near Whitis Street is an area between the Littlefield, Blanton, Carothers and Andrews residence halls. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be held in Hogg Auditorium near the Texas Union.
The darkening of the Tower at dusk will be the final event for UT Remembers. As the sun sets, the only areas of the Tower that will be glowing with white light will be the cap and observation deck. All other areas of the Tower will be darkened.
UT Remembers is a program of UT Cares, a campus-wide committee formed in 1996 to provide assistance and support to the university community in times of trauma or loss.
