Aggie Ring Day on Friday, April 13 is relocating to inside the Hall of Champions at Kyle Field due to a severe weather threat, The Association of Former Students announced today.
Saturday’s Aggie Ring Day is not affected and will proceed as planned at the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center.
Key information to know:
- There is no change to Friday’s delivery times; only the location has changed.
- Last names starting with A to K will enter the stadium through the Southwest Tower, and last names starting with L to Z will enter through the Northwest Tower.
- The Aggie Ring Day Shuttle will run from West Campus Garage to the Hall of Champions and back.

“After consultations with the Texas A&M Emergency Management Team and based on the best available information from the National Weather Service and the chief meteorologist at KBTX,” Association Vice President Kathryn Greenwade said, “it became clear the responsible course of action was to move Aggie Ring Day to a larger indoor location that offers more shelter and greater safety and comfort for Aggie Ring recipients, their families and friends, and the hundreds of staff and volunteers who make Ring Day possible.”
Predicting the weather always includes a large element of uncertainty, and Friday could end up being a beautiful day. But moving Ring Day is an enormously complex logistical operation and that plan is already fully in motion, so this decision will not be reversed even if the forecast changes.
Ring Day planning involves many teams from The Association of Former Students, as well as many Texas A&M University entities. The Association of Former Students is appreciative of many university partners helping to implement this contingency plan, and especially appreciative of Texas A&M Athletics for making the Hall of Champions available during a very busy weekend in Aggieland.
Everyone at The Association looks forward to a great weekend in Aggieland and congratulates the 6,600 Aggies who will receive their Aggies Rings Friday and Saturday.
