Pitt Class Ring Ceremony
The official class ring of the University of Pittsburgh symbolically commemorates the unique and lifelong connection alumni have to Pitt. Students who purchase a class ring are making an investment that will last a lifetime. This ring is a tangible connection to your alma mater.
The evening prior to you receiving your ring at the Pitt Class Ring Ceremony, each ring will spend the night at the pinnacle of this great University, atop the Cathedral of Learning. The rings are placed there as a symbol of the heights each of its wearers will reach upon graduating from Pitt.
As a student, the ring should face inward, towards your heart, as a motivator. Upon graduation, your class ring should be turned so that it is facing out to the world ready to face any obstacle.
