The Class of 2015 is leaving the Forty Acres, and a two-night Tower lighting will honor the accomplishments of those Longhorns while wishing our graduates well as they transition from students to alumni.
On both Saturday, May 23 and Sunday, May 24, the university Tower will shine with entirely burnt orange lights and a “15” configuration in its windows.
[Share your commencement pictures on on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with #UTgrad, and use #UTTower to share your Tower lighting photos.]
This year, 8,800 Longhorns will graduate from the university during the 132nd Spring Commencement. Darren Walker, president of the prestigious Ford Foundation and a longtime social justice leader, will deliver the keynote address during the main commencement ceremony.
More information about this year’s commencement ceremonies, including schedules and inclement weather updates, can be found on the university’s main commencement site, http://events.utexas.edu/commencement/spring.
