Questions at Ring Day? Just find a staff member in a bright neon yellow shirt and they'll be happy to help.

Thousands of Aggies, family, and friends gather 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 to understand how Aggie Ring Day works, and to help your guests understand Aggie Ring Day. This section is designed to provide quick access to all the information you’ll need on Aggie Ring Day.

Please Note:

  • No one will be permitted to wait within the Ford Hall of Champions for an Aggie to pick up their Ring. Your guests enter when you do.
  • Cell phone service is likely to be spotty, so make a plan before you get to the Hall of Champions.
  • Unfortunately, with such large crowds moving through the building, you will not be able to linger inside the building to celebrate or take photos; we have to clear the building to make room for the next group of Aggies and their guests.

Parking

We recommend that Ring recipients and guests park at West Campus Garage, which is only a short walk from Kyle Field. Pre-pay Ring Day parking is available for purchase. Pay upon arrival (cash only) parking will also be available.

For guests with mobility concerns, Gene Stallings Blvd. Garage will also be available. The Alumni Center parking lot will be closed.

Additionally, 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.

There will be no Ring Day shuttles running to Kyle Field.

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. Nearly 2,700 Aggies will receive their Rings, and will bring thousands of guests to witness their special day. To safely manage such a massive crowd, the entire day is carefully scheduled, and all movement into, out of and around the Ford Hall of Champions is carefully controlled. Please read this page and the various emails we have sent so that you know what to expect and stay up to date with information on social media.

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
Only you will need a Ring Ticket
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 Kyle Field and the Ford Hall of Champions 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 ticket-takers.

You’ll pull a Ring Ticket to determine your Ring pick-up time. Each Ring Ticket corresponds to 15-minute time slots throughout the day, so select an available time that works for you! Ring Ticket pull opens online beginning at 7 a.m. on October 29, two weeks before Aggie Ring Day, and will continue through Aggie Ring Day. Early access for Century Club members begins Tuesday, October 26 at 7 a.m. Group slots are limited and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Who Can I Bring?

There is no limit to how many guests you can bring. But remember, you and your guests will not be permitted into the Ford Hall of Champions until your ticket group number is called.

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

What to Do

When you arrive at the west side of Kyle Field, follow the signs to find the activation tower that corresponds with your last name. You will enter the stadium with your guests at any point during your 15-minute ticket time slot.

Entering Kyle Field

  1. Have your Ring Ticket ready for staff to verify it as you enter the activation tower. If using your mobile device, take a screenshot prior to arriving, as cell service can be spotty on Ring Day.
  2. You and your guests will move through the activation towers. Make sure your entire group is together upon entry.

In the Ford Hall of Champions

  1. Find the Delivery Station that corresponds with your last name.
  2. Present your IDs to receive your Aggie Ring.
  3. Check to make sure the Class year and engraving are correct.

After you receive your Aggie Ring, please quickly exit the delivery area so your fellow Aggies can receive theirs. You are welcome to take personal photos around the grounds and throughout the beautiful Texas A&M campus. Re-entry into the Ford Hall of Champions to take photos is not permitted..

You can watch a video walk-through guide to Aggie Ring Day at the Ford Hall of Champions to help you prepare for the day!

Not a Perfect Fit?

Different activities and temperatures throughout the day can cause your hands and fingers to constantly change. 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 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.
