Aggie Ring Day concludes Howdy Week activitiesPublished Sep 15, 2019
The Department of Student Affairs held its annual Howdy Week 1-5 Sept. The week’s program included the Aggieland Market Fair, Student Involvement Fest, Study Abroad Fair, Wellness Day, and Aggie Ring Day combined with Spirit Thursday.
New and returning students attended the week's events, along with faculty and staff.
The week wrapped up with Aggie Ring Day during which 49 students received their Aggie Rings during a lively ceremony. 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.
