SMWC 91st Ring Day set for March 23

News Release

ST. MARY-OF-THE-WOODS — The 91st Ring Day ceremony at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 23, in the Church of the Immaculate Conception.

Ring Day at The Woods has been one of most highly anticipated events of the student’s college experience.

Eighty-three campus, Woods Online and graduate students will receive their Woods Ring in a powerfully moving ceremony.

The ring is visible evidence of the tradition of academic excellence, personal growth and fortitude, which are the roots of The Woods. It is an enduring symbol that is far more than a piece of jewelry. It honors academic success and sacrifice, while demonstrating the pride and loyalty the students and alumnae/i share.

During the annual ceremony, President Dottie King, Ph.D., will present the unique onyx and gold ring to each student. With its distinctive design, only SMWC students and alumni have the privilege of wearing the ring. The oak leaves signify knowledge and the six acorns represent the founders of the College.
