Torch Night: A Farewell to Thee

Torch Night: A Farewell to Thee is one of UT’s oldest traditions. Graduates have the opportunity to symbolically receive the Torch of Service, pledging to serve both the university and their community as responsible and loyal alumni. All graduating seniors and graduate students, along with their families, are invited to participate.

Graduates must register for Torch Night on their Commencement registration form once it opens in the fall.
