A class ring makes a special gift—and the Ring Ceremony ties it up in a bow

If you’re thinking about what to give your Lancer this holiday season, you might want to consider a Longwood class ring.

In addition to being a lasting memento of one of the most pivotal times of their lives, a class ring gives your junior or senior Lancer—as well as their invited guests—the opportunity to participate in Longwood’s Ring Ceremony. It’s a cherished tradition where representatives of the university and the Alumni Board present students with their rings, which have spent the previous night in a special locked chest in the Rotunda.

Family members and friends are part of the celebration at Longwood’s annual Ring Ceremony, where students receive their class rings.

The next Ring Ceremony is set for noon Sunday, March 24, 2024. The final date to purchase a ring in time for it to be presented at the 2024 Ring Ceremony is Feb. 8, 2024. Everyone who purchases a ring by Feb. 8 will receive an invitation to the ceremony.

Balfour is the only company to offer the official Longwood ring. Visit the Balfour website to see options and costs.
