The University of Texas honored the 205 members of students, faculty, staffers and retirees who died during the past year.
The ceremony began at 8:45 a.m. with the lowering of the flags on the main mall to half-staff.
Members of UT's ROTC Color Guard did that.
Friday afternoon they named each person being remembered and the tower bell tolled with tribute. At dusk, the UT tower will remain dark except for two rings of white light, one at the top of the tower and the other around the observation deck to honor those who have been lost.
