Thousands of Aggies, family and friends gather at the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center on Aggie Ring Day to celebrate achieving an academic milestone and receiving the most visible symbol of the Aggie Network: the Aggie Ring.

Due to the large crowds, it's important for you and your guests to understand how Aggie Ring Day works. This section is designed to provide quick access to all the information you'll need on Aggie Ring Day.

Shuttles and Parking

Complimentary shuttles are provided to and from the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center and West Campus Garage (WCG). All guests are encouraged to park at West Campus Garage and take the shuttle. All shuttles are accessible to those with mobility needs. Pre-paid Ring Day parking will be available for purchase in WCG.

Shuttles begin running at approximately 8:15 a.m., and will stop running about 1 hour after each Ring Day concludes.

If you have a valid parking permit, you may park at your regular parking lot or in any Lot 100 (Reed Arena and Blue Bell Park) space. For additional parking information, please visit Texas A&M Transportation Services.

What's Ring Day Like?

Aggie Ring Day is a celebration of remarkable achievement. However, it is also a large, loud, crowded and logistically intricate event. At the April 2023 Ring Day, nearly 6,000 Aggies will receive their Aggie Rings in College Station, and about 45,000 additional guests are expected to join them. In order to safely manage such a massive crowd, the entire day is carefully scheduled, and all movement into, out of and around the Alumni Center is carefully controlled. Please read this page carefully and look out for informational emails so that you know what to expect.

While you are at Aggie Ring Day, please be aware of your surroundings, listen for announcements and be prepared for the possibility of last-minute changes due to weather or other events beyond our control.

What to Bring

Ring Ticket Your Ring Ticket
The Ring recipient's one ticket will provide entry for their group.
Ring Ticket 2 Forms of Identification
Student ID, Driver's License, Passport, Ring Receipt

To pick up your Aggie Ring, you will need your Ring Ticket and two forms of identification. Your Ring Ticket reserves your spot in the assigned group and gives you and your guests entrance into the Haynes Ring Plaza and the Alumni Center when your group number is called. Entry before your Ticket group time is not permitted.

Have a screenshot of your Ring Ticket on your phone or print it beforehand to show staff. If you take a screenshot, be sure that all of the ticket information is visible. Ring Ticket pull opens online at 7 a.m. three weeks before Aggie Ring Day, and will continue through Aggie Ring Day. Early access for Century Club members begins Tuesday, March 21, at 7 a.m.

On Ring Day, we also recommend bringing water to stay hydrated, shoes that you can comfortably stand or walk in, and weather-appropriate supplies such as personal fans or umbrellas. Bags are allowed inside the Williams Alumni Center. Please do not bring balloons or pets (other than marked service animals), as neither are permitted inside the building.

Who Can I Bring?

There is no limit to how many guests you can bring, but remember that guests may only enter the Williams Alumni Center with their Ring recipient. Please wait for your entire group to arrive before having your ticket checked.

Please consider how weather conditions, walking distances, no seating, and large crowds in and around the Alumni Center will affect the health, safety, and comfort of your guests.

When You Arrive

Aggie Ring Day is held in the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center. All guests will enter Ring Day at the north end of the Williams Ring Lawn. Groups needing mobility accommodations should notify a staff member as they enter to be directed to an accessible building entrance.

If you are waiting on guests or arrive early, we recommend finding a shaded place to wait in Aggie Park. Once your guests have been gathered and it is time for your group, proceed towards ticket check at the Williams Ring Lawn. We encourage you to enter the queuing area no earlier than 10 minutes before your ticket time in order to avoid discomfort and the possibility of overheating.

When Your Group is Called

  1. Please wait for your entire group to gather before having your ticket checked. Have your Ring Ticket ready to show staff at the north end of the Williams Ring Lawn. If using your mobile device, take a screenshot prior to arriving, as cell service can be spotty on Ring Day. If you take a screenshot, be sure that all of the ticket information is visible.
  2. Continue moving towards the Haynes Ring Plaza. Follow the signs according to your last name.
  3. Plan to spend no more than 15 minutes inside the Williams Alumni Center.
Alumni Center

In the Alumni Center

  1. Find the delivery station that contains your last name.
  2. Present your two forms of ID to receive your Aggie Ring.
  3. Check to make sure the Class year and engraving are correct.

You are welcome to take personal photos in Aggie Park, around the Alumni Center grounds and throughout the beautiful Texas A&M campus. Re-entry into the Haynes Ring Plaza to take photos is not permitted.

Not a Perfect Fit?

Different activities and temperatures throughout the day can cause your hands and fingers to shrink or swell. Wearing your Ring for several days will help you best determine if a resize is necessary.

If you need to resize your Aggie Ring, stop by the Aggie Ring Program Office the following week.

Turning Your Ring

Aggie tradition is that you wear your new Aggie Ring with the year facing you, as a constant reminder to yourself of your goal to graduate from Texas A&M. At Ring Dance or during your commencement ceremony, you will turn your Ring so that the year faces outward, proudly declaring your achievement to everyone you meet.

Generations of Aggie Rings

The Association of Former Students congratulates you on reaching this very significant milestone. Please remember that the legacy of the Aggie Ring has been built by the hundreds of thousands of Aggies who came before you.

Once that Ring is on your hand, you are a representative of both Texas A&M University and the legendary Aggie Network—everywhere you go and in everything you do. Always make sure your actions are guided by the core values of our great university, and never do anything to dishonor the Aggie Ring or the reputation of the worldwide Aggie Network.
