An annual Flight Memorial ceremony honors students, staff, faculty and alumni who
have died the previous year. During the ceremony, which takes place each spring, the
names of our fallen Eagles are read aloud and the bells of McConnell Tower toll in
tribute. Throughout the year, when the university learns of a current student’s death,
the UNT flag is flown at half-staff as a sign of respect and a signal to the UNT community
that we have lost one of our own.
