As precautionary measures are taken to curb the spread of COVID-19, adjustments are being made to events across our country, and Aggieland is not excluded. As you are aware, the CDC has issued recommendations to avoid all large gatherings.
Out of consideration for the health and safety of our Aggie Ring recipients, their guests, our Ring Day volunteers and vendors, as well as our community at large, The Association has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel Aggie Ring Day for the April 2020 delivery and provide alternative ways for you to receive your Aggie Ring. You will have the choice to have your Aggie Ring shipped to you (at no additional charge) or held for pickup after Texas A&M University resumes normal operations.
The absence of a Ring Day event cannot lessen the importance of the Aggie Ring nor diminish the academic achievement it signifies. The power of the Aggie Ring does not emanate from one day of celebration but from its significance as the most visible symbol of the worldwide Aggie Network and the connections it facilitates among Aggies.
We ask all Aggies to understand that the temporary new normal we’re living in may require that some of our traditions take on a different look in 2020, but the spirit of those traditions remains unaltered. As we’ve seen time and again during times of crisis, from world wars to hurricanes, the Aggie Spirit will prevail.
