The Baylor Alumni Association hosted the spring 2010 Ring Ceremony on Tuesday, May 4 at 5:30 p.m. in Waco Hall. Ring sales were at an all-time high this year with 475 students purchasing rings, and over 800 people in attendance at the ceremony.
The BAA hosts the event twice each year since the university adopted the single official ring concept as the newest of the Baylor traditions in the mid-1990s, and the event was moved to Waco Hall after outgrowing the Barfield Drawing Room. During the ceremony, students are presented their rings and told the history and meaning of the more than a dozen historic symbols on the ring.
Designed by the Balfour Company in 1995, the Official Baylor Ring may only be purchased by alumni or students who have completed 75 or more hours of study. Jeff Kilgore, executive vice president of the alumni association, said, “Baylor University’s tradition encompasses 160 years, and the Baylor Ring is a tangible symbol of that heritage. For Baylor alumni, it unites our past with our present and our future.”
