If you have ever seen an eagle in flight, it is a beautiful sight. We call this page Flight Memorial because we want to remember the beauty that all of these individuals brought to people who worked with them, learned from them, or studied with them.


For the safety of families and guests, we will honor those who have passed away on this page in lieu of an in-person Flight Memorial Service. Each name honored on this site represents someone who is deeply missed and fondly remembered by colleagues, family, friends, and loved ones. We profoundly mourn the loss of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and retirees.


We also pay tribute to our fallen Eagles in more visible and lasting ways. The Sustaining Arch Memorial, located in the Onstead Promenade, is a lasting tribute to the students who are no longer with us. Three flag poles on the south side of the promenade display the American, Texas and UNT flags. The Dean of Students calls for the UNT flag to be lowered for seven days when a currently enrolled student passes away. The flag is then presented to the student's family.


You can view those honored on the Flight Memorial Programs Page.


If you know someone who has passed and should be added to the Flight Memorial Program, please email deanofstudents@unt.edu.
