    In recognition of the 2011 fall graduates at The University of Texas at Austin, the Tower will shine orange with the number “11″ the evenings of Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, Dec. 4.

    The roughly 3,100 graduates this fall semester include about 2,124 undergraduates, 740 students receiving their master’s degrees, 221 doctoral students and 15 law students, according to the Office of the Registrar.

    Convocation ceremonies, hosted by the various colleges and schools, are occasions when these academic units celebrate their graduates’ achievements with individualized honors and traditions. Fall graduation activities do not include a university-wide commencement ceremony.

    Speakers for the fall convocation ceremonies include a former university president, a Texas state representative, executives of major corporations and members of the university’s faculty, administration and student body.

    Read more about the convocation ceremonies on Dec. 3-4 and visit the fall commencement website.
