Texas A&M at Qatar students receive Aggie RingsPublished Sep 17, 2018
Fifty-seven students from Texas A&M University at Qatar recently received their Aggie Rings in a ceremony in Education City. Texas A&M University students are called “Aggies” and that tradition continues at Texas A&M’s branch campus in Doha. The Aggie Ring is the most visible symbol of the Aggie Network that connects graduates of Texas A&M around the world. Dating back more than 100 years, the Aggie Ring is a tradition that is deep in symbolism and represents the values every Aggie should hold: excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect and selfless service. Those who have earned the right to wear the Aggie Ring have cleared some of the toughest requirements in the United States for a class ring, making it one of the most treasured items an Aggie possesses. In 2017, more than 15,000 Aggie Rings were purchased from Texas A&M’s alumni organization, The Association of Former Students.
