Each year since 1971, students, faculty and others gather at 11 p.m. on May 3 to take part in a candlelight procession around the perimeter of campus. Following the walk a vigil begins with people positioned in the spots where the four students were killed. The vigil continues until 12:24 p.m. on May 4, the time of the confrontation between the students and the National Guard. The candlelight walk and vigil were established by Emeritus Professor Jerry Lewis with the help of students. Today, the May 4 Task Force student organization conducts the walk and vigil.
