I invite you to join us for the 122nd Spring Commencement ceremonies at The University of Texas at Austin. Our Commencement is one of the most uplifting events you will ever experience. In a festive evening of music, marches, and spectacular fireworks, we celebrate the educational journey that has led to this special moment in the lives of our graduating students.

The University of Texas at Austin is an inspiring place that cultivates exceptional people. The students who are graduating this year have upheld the highest standards of academic achievement. With their new degrees in hand, they are better equipped to make valuable contributions to their families and society, and to pursue their own personal ambitions. They are ready to make their mark on the world.

Commencement is a time to celebrate, to reminisce, and to look to the future with great confidence.  Congratulations to the graduates, and our sincerest thanks to their parents, friends, and family members who have supported them during their studies here.

Larry R. Faulkner, President
The University of Texas at Austin
