The Aggie Ring Day

The Aggie Ring is the most visible symbol of the Aggie Network that connects Aggies around the world. Dating back over a hundred years, it is a tradition that is deep in symbolism. Every symbol represents values every Aggie should hold: Excellence, Integrity,Leadership, Loyalty, Respect and Selfless Service.




Those that have earned the right to wear the Aggie Ring have cleared some of the toughest requirements in the country for a class ring; thus making it one of the most treasured items an Aggie possesses. The requirements were established by the Official Senior Ring Committee of 1933. To be eligible, students have to complete 90 undergraduate hours in good academic standing at the University. The Aggie Ring Day is one of the most anticipated milestones in an Aggie student's career.






On Thursday, the 12th of April, fifty four students from Texas A&M at Qatar received their Aggie Rings at 12 pm. The event was organized by the Traditions Council and Student Affairs Department of the univertiy. Benjamin Cieslinski, a laboratory manager and a former Aggie, spoke to student about the significance of the Aggie Ring. Next, Dean Weichold and John Finn, the President of the Doha Aggie Club, gave away the ring to the students.




To end the ceremony, all the Aggies sang the Aggie War Hymn, and there was a raffle draw for the attendees.
