University Ring

UL Lafayette's ring signifies the bond between the University's graduates and their alma mater.

The red stone represents the University's primary color, vermilion, and also features a fleur-de-lis.

The design incorporates other elements and images of campus life, including cypress lake and oak trees, the University's seal, and Martin Hall, the main administrative building.

Inside each ring is the inscription, "heart and hand" — the final three words of the University's alma mater.

Females will have four ring options and males will have three ring choices. A variety of metals is also available.

Take a look at our ring anatomy sheet to learn about the various symbols on the ring and their meanings.

Ring Ceremony

Our Ring Ceremony celebrates the bond between all UL graduates. Students and past graduates are presented with the rings they ordered by President Savoie during the ceremony.

The night before the ceremony, the rings are loaded onto a custom-built metal pirogue to spend the night on the water, guarded by students. Watch highlights of the 2013 spring ceremony.
