Ring Ceremony

When the university marked its sesquicentennial in 1995, students, alumni, faculty and staff began establishing new traditions to propel UMHB into the 21st century. An important step in this direction was to custom design an official school ring. The new ring carries symbols and features chosen to distinguish a UMHB student from all others and serve as a lasting symbol of proud traditions. The UMHB ring is a visible, tangible manifestation of that ever-present bond between UMHB and its alumni.
