Official HSU Class Ring
For December & August 2016 Graduates
Dear HSU Degree Candidate,
It is my pleasure to announce that, in recognition of you earning your HSU diploma, a unique program exists whereby every graduating student can receive the Official Hardin-Simmons University Ring during the semester of her/his scheduled graduation. The best part of this program is that you will not have to pay any more for your ring than you have already paid for your college expenses! Recognizing the high costs involved in earning An Education Enlightened by Faith, we want to acknowledge your success by offering you an Official HSU Ring to wear during your final semester and thereafter as a symbol of your dedication in achieving this great life milestone.
On the Alumni Association website (www.hsutx.edu/official-ring), you may preview choices such as karat weight, stone options, and style.
HSU is offering you a Ring in Solaris Elite (a radiant yellow 6kt metal alloy) or Silver Elite (a precious white metal alloy); in your choice of style, either large, regular, small, or petite; and with amethysts, cubic zirconia, or plain stars. You can select up to 18 letters to be engraved inside your ring. Upgrades, including diamonds and 10kt or 14kt gold, may be purchased. The standard Ring, however, can be yours for no extra cost.
To receive your Official HSU Ring, you must come by Moody Center to have your finger sized and to select the custom elements that will make this ring uniquely yours. You also must have your completed diploma card on file with the Registrar’s Office.
For everyone scheduled to graduate December/August, 2016, Ring Sizing will take place in Moody Center on:
Monday, Aug. 29, 10:00-4:00
Tuesday, Aug. 30, 10:00-4:00
Wednesday, Aug. 31, 10:00-6:00
Thursday, Sept. 1, 10:00-4:00
Monday, Sept. 7, 10:00-6:00
It will be my pleasure to personally hand your Official Ring to you during HSU’s Ring Celebration and Presentation Ceremony on Thursday, November 10 at 6:00 p.m. Everyone who orders a Ring will receive an invitation to this event. Families are invited to share this short, yet significant occasion. In addition to your own ticket, you may request up to two additional tickets.
If, after ordering your HSU Ring, you are unable to attend the Ceremony, your Ring will be available at Graduation Rehearsal or in the Alumni Office the week of Graduation. Exception: with an approved excused absence, you may pick up your Ring the week following the Ceremony. Excused absences are those scho0l-sanctioned events which prohibit you from attending the 5:45-6:45 Ceremony, and about which the professor/coach has previously communicated with the Director of Alumni Relations.
We recognize how diligently you have worked to get to this point in your collegiate career. Upon your graduation, HSU will be proud to count you as a member of the Alumni Association. We want you to return to the campus often; you will always be welcome.
It gives us great pleasure that Hardin-Simmons University is able to honor your accomplishments in this way. My hope is that you will wear your Official HSU Ring with pride wherever your career takes you.
If you have any questions regarding your eligibility, ring sizing or the ceremony please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at (325)670-1317/(800)460-3908.
