The Official Texas Tech Class Ring


Official Class Ring

Since 1999, Texas Tech has had one universal symbol of academic achievement - The Official Texas Tech Class Ring. It is a tradition brought back from the 1950s, which evokes special memories of the occasions and traditions of Texas Tech and is a symbolic, continuous link with classmates, friends and generations of alumni.

The Fall 2008 Official Ring Ceremonies will take place at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 17, 18 and 19 at the Merket Alumni Center located at 17th and University.

President Guy Bailey will present rings to students during the ceremonies on November 17 and 18. James Brink, Associate Vice Provost for Heritage Consortium for the Natural and Historic Southwest, will read the names of students receiving rings.

Brink will present rings to students at the ceremony on November 19, while Professor Robert Wernsman reads the names.
