Ring Ceremony

Legend of the Jaguar Spirit

There is a rich tradition of the class rings that exudes A&M-San Antonio’s culture and connection to our community.

On the eve of each Ring Ceremony, the class rings are stowed in the Dome of the Central Academic Building, where they are kept overnight and guarded.

It is legend that at nightfall before the ceremony, the Dome holds the Spirit of the Jaguar, which illuminated the Dome and permeated each class ring.

The Jaguar Spirit unifies the connection between classmates, future and current alumni and our beloved Texas A&M-San Antonio.

As the sun rose this morning, shining on the gleaming rings through the east window of the Dome, the Jaguar Spirit was sealed in each band, which lasts an eternity.
