A: The formal part of the presentation will take place in the Auditorium. Each student will cross the stage where they will be given their ring by Dr. Matson. As part of our tradition, students will be asked to step outside to place their ring on their finger while standing over the seal of the university. Students who wish to have someone place the ring on their finger can do so. This is not a requirement, however if you would like a parent, significant other, professor/staff member to place the ring on your finger you may do so. Please notify this person ahead of time so they are aware of their role in this event.


A: No. All participants of the Ring Ceremony must purchase the official class ring, which is sold exclusively through Herff Jones.
