About the Ring
The interlocking UH logo adorns the top of the official class ring. The right shank presents the University seal — a variation of Sam Houston’s coat of arms — that features flanked martlets, two greyhounds, and a winged hourglass with the motto “In Time” above it.
The wearer’s graduation year is also featured on this side. The left shank bears the wearer’s degree, a facade of the Ezekiel Cullen Building, and the University’s founding date, 1927. Rings are available in either yellow or white gold with options such as antique finishes and diamond settings.
Tradition dictates that current students wear the ring facing inward. Only alumni should wear the ring with the logo facing outward.
Our New Tradition
Starting in December of 2011, UHAA and the Houston Zoo partnered to have all official UH Class Rings spend the night prior to the Fall Ring Ceremony in the cougar exhibit with Haley the cougar. In March of 2012, the university’s new live mascot, Shasta VI was unveiled at the Houston Zoo and the rings will now spend the night with Shasta VI prior to every Ring Ceremony.
