One of the most visually memorable moments of Commencement occurs following the conferring of degrees at the university-wide ceremony. The UT Tower is instantly bathed in orange light with the academic year illuminated in its windows. When coupled with the celebratory fireworks at the end of the ceremony, the composite photo is a uniquely Texas hallmark of celebration. This memorable moment on May 21, 2005 will be captured in an 8" x 12" color photo available for $14.95 each.
