Class rings have helped alums carry memories of their experience at the country’s oldest private military college since the 1920s.

More than a simple memento, the Norwich University Class Ring symbolizes the steps cadets and civilian students go through on their way to becoming leaders. Rings are designed by a committee of students, and the wearer must meet strict guidelines before he or she is allowed to purchase one. Rings are presented at a ceremony toward the end of junior year; one of the milestones of a Norwich education.
