Commencement is a time of beginnings and endings, a reflection of the ageless cycle that defines and renews life. I invite you to participate in the 117th Spring Commencement exercises at The University of Texas at Austin, the annual ritual which marks not only the triumphant culmination of our students' academic programs, but also the new beginnings in a life-long engagement with the challenges of family and society.

Commencement is a time for all of us—parents and children, teachers and students, administrators and staff, friends and family. Let us pause for a moment beneath a great arc of fireworks and the victory lights of UT's Tower to glance back on the experiences that have brought us to this milestone.

Please join us for this special evening when we salute the achievements and the bright futures of the first graduating class of the new century.
