Get excited for the Spring 2021 Ring Ceremony! The UofSC Alumni Association is committed to celebrating your accomplishments at UofSC. Receiving your ring is such a huge step in your Gamecock journey, which is why we are inviting you to the Spring 2021 Ring Ceremony at the Pastides Alumni Center on Sunday, April 18 at 2 p.m.
Register for a timed ticket to pick up your ring and go through a series of celebrations at the Pastides Alumni Center. During the celebration, take photos with your #UofSCRing with President Caslen, at our photo booth and with Cocky. You’ll also have the opportunity to watch a video of our traditional ring program and hear from Garnet Circle leadership; Alumni Association Board of Governors President Robin Roberts; and UofSC President Bob Caslen.
For the safety of our guests, masks will be required for the duration of the Spring 2021 Ring Ceremony. Social distancing guidelines will be followed, and hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the Pastides Alumni Center. There will also be a two guest per student limit, and students MUST register for a timed ticket in advance.
Don’t feel comfortable attending Ring Ceremony in person? No worries! We will email the Spring 2021 Ring Ceremony video to all 2020 and 2021 ring purchasers on Sunday, April 18 at 2 p.m.
Once you receive your ring, we want to see your photos showing your Gamecock spirit! Try out our virtual photo booth or Facebook frame below and tag us in your photos on April 18 using #uofscring and tagging @uofscalumni and @uofscsaa so we can reshare!
