The Baylor Alumni Association has hosted the ceremony twice each year since the university adopted the single official ring concept as the newest of the Baylor traditions in the mid-1990s, and the event was moved to Waco Hall after outgrowing the Barfield Drawing Room. During the ceremony, students are presented their rings and told the history and meaning of the more than a dozen historic symbols on the ring.
Designed by the Balfour Company in 1995, the Official Baylor Class Ring may only be purchased by alumni or students who have completed 75 or more hours of study. Jeff Kilgore, executive vice president of the alumni association, said, "Baylor University's tradition encompasses 160 years, and the Official Baylor Class Ring is a tangible symbol of that heritage. For Baylor alumni, it unites our past with our present and our future."
Upon completing 75 hours, students have earned the right to purchase the Official Baylor Class Ring. A selection of ring styles may be ordered in the following ways:
1. Contacting Balfour at balfour.com
2. Call 1-866-225-3687
3. Ordering your ring in person during Ring Week— a week in the fall and spring semesters in which Balfour representatives are on campus to personally take orders.
If you would like to attend the Official Baylor Class Ring Ceremony, your order must be submitted before or during Ring Week.
