The SMU Ring is a tangible and recognizable symbol of pride in SMU and its history. It is a link with classmates, friends, and alumni spread all over the world, as well as a reminder of accomplishments and experiences during college years. Students wear the ring with the seal facing them until the granting of degrees at Commencement. After graduation the ring is worn with the seal facing outward to symbolize that the graduate is now ready to face the world!
The SMU Ring can be viewed and purchased online at Balfour, or by calling 1-800-BALFOUR. Students may also order rings in person at the Hughes-Trigg Student Center on Tuesday, October 26 and Wednesday, October 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
SMU's Ring Ceremony will be held in the spring.
