UT Students Remember 9/11 through Memorial Project

In remembrance of those killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, UT is participating in the 9/11: Never Forget Project. Members of the student organization Young Americans for Freedom constructed a memorial to the individuals whose lives were lost during the attacks by placing 2,977 American flags beside the Humanities Amphitheater. The students began planting the flags at 11:00 p.m. yesterday. The memorial will remain in place throughout the day today.
