As many flashy right hands on campus will tell you, the Norwich experience has a ring on it. And today, civilian students and the Corps of Cadets from the 2023 Class will debut their designs in the Junior Ring reveal.

The civilians will display the design in the Wise Campus Center’s “fishbowl” lounge from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Corps will reveal its design around 8 p.m. in Plumley Armory.

The Class of 2023 will mark the centennial of the university’s ring tradition, started in 1923 by that year’s senior class. The 1923 Class modeled its jewelry, which features a class crest on one side and Norwich University’s crest on the other, after the U.S. Military Academy’s. A 10-member class Ring Committee designs the class side of the Corps of Cadets’ ring during the sophomore year’s spring semester.

The civilian ring was first planned in fall 1989 at a meeting of the Board of Fellows and the Vermont College Student Government. A civilian ring tradition began in 1990.
