This ceremony is an FSU tradition for students who have purchased a class ring. Traditionally, students are presented their ring on stage in the Ruby Diamond Auditorium and dip it into Westcott Fountain at 6:51pm to conclude their experience. This year, due to the COVID–19 restrictions, the celebration will look a bit different.
Although this year's President's Ring Ceremony looks a little different, and we could not dip our rings together this evening, we encourage all ring recipients to return to Westcott Plaza, between now and Commencement and dip their class ring in the Westcott Fountain at 6:51 PM.
You may ask, why 6:51 PM?
In Military Time, 6:51 PM reads as 1851, the year in which the University was founded. The military is an integral part of our history and is honored with this part of our ring tradition.
