Students and alumni who purchased rings before March 20, 2020 are invited to attend the Spring Ring Ceremony. The ring recipient and up to four guests are invited to attend as ring recipients are officially presented their class rings by an honored guest of their choosing.
Ring recipients will also participate in the Eagle Ring Dive tradition by dipping their hand in the Library Mall fountains below McConnell Tower to be immersed in the spirit and tradition of the University of North Texas. This milestone event celebrates UNT memories and honors loved ones who provided support throughout their student’s academic transformation.
