Official Baylor Ring
The Official Baylor Ring Tradition
Baylor University’s legacy encompasses over 175 years of meaningful traditions. The Official Baylor Ring is a tangible symbol of our university’s rich heritage, and a lifelong emblem marking your incredible achievement and uniting you with Baylor alumni of the past, present and future.
Join the Tradition - The Official Baylor Ring!

Celebrate your incredible achievement and the Official Baylor Ring tradition by viewing the virtual Baylor Ring Ceremony with your nearest and dearest! You and your virtual guests will hear from inspirational speakers, including Baylor University President Linda Livingstone, Baylor alumnus Vince Clark, plus others!
