Aggie Ring Day November 2019
Aggies at campuses in College Station, Galveston and the School of Law in Fort Worth will receive their Aggie Rings during Aggie Ring Day festivities Friday, Nov. 8.
The Association of Former Students estimates more than 30,000 Texas A&M University students, friends and family members will be on hand at the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center when 3,032 Aggies on the main campus in College Station receive their rings with the help of more than 320 volunteers and Association staff. Distribution will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Ring Day information
Organizers say each ring recipient needs to pull a ring ticket at AggieNetwork.com to determine their time to pick up their ring, and that each recipient needs to bring their ring ticket with them, plus two of the following three items:
- Ring receipt
- Driver’s license
- Student ID
Note: In the event of potentially dangerous weather, ring recipients and their guests should look for emails and social media posts from The Association of Former Students, as well as posts on AggieNetwork.com for further information. Under such circumstances, guests are advised to take shelter in the Memorial Student Center or University Center Garage.
Parking and transportation
Texas A&M Transportation Services will close Houston St. from 10 a.m. until the conclusion of Ring Day to provide greater safety for pedestrian traffic. There will be no access to the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center circle drive off Houston Street. Parking options, Ring Day shuttle schedule and information for those with accessibility questions can be found at www.aggienetwork.com/ring/ringday.
About the Aggie Ring
The first known Aggie Ring was produced in 1889 and today the Aggie Ring Program, managed by The Association of Former Students, is the largest collegiate ring program in country.
Aggies must earn 90 credit hours before ordering their Aggie Ring and obtaining the Aggie Ring is a highly anticipated milestone.
In 2018, more than 15,000 Aggie Rings were purchased.
