A Time for Texas : Commencement 2007

Message from the President

University of Texas President William Powers Jr.

I invite you to join us for the 2007 Fall Commencement at The University of Texas at Austin.  Our Commencement is one of the most uplifting and enjoyable events you will ever experience.  In a festive weekend full of tradition, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of the class of 2007.

For 124 years, UT has represented this state's greatest aspirations and noblest dreams.  The University has inspired generations of outstanding students to pursue their ambitions and to make valuable contributions to their communities and to our state and nation.

This is an extraordinary time.  A time for Texas.  A time for this generation to step forward and become the creative thinkers and leaders of a new era.  Because what starts here changes the world.  

I congratulate the graduates of 2007 and offer my sincere appreciation to parents, friends, and family members for their roles in shaping the lives of these extraordinary students. 

William Powers Jr.
The University of Texas at Austin
