BeaRing the Night
BeaRing the Night is one of the Official Baylor Ring’s newest – and most fun – traditions for Baylor students and alumni, not to mention our Baylor mascots!
BeaRing the Night is one of the Official Baylor Ring’s newest – and most fun – traditions!
At the close of each fall and spring semester, Official Baylor Rings ordered during ring week are shipped to Baylor and carefully secured in the Ring Vault. Before the Ring Ceremony, the Ring Vault is transported under guard to the Bill and Eva Williams Bear Habitat for what we like to call, “A Slum-Bear Party!”
The Ring Vault is introduced to the Bear Habitat yard by the Baylor Chamber of Commerce bear trainers, where the bears enjoy a little (supervised) play time with the Ring Vault. Then, as night falls, the Ring Vault is secured in the locked area of the Habitat, “BeaRing the Night” under the watchful eyes of our treasured Baylor mascots. The next morning, the rings are transported under guard to be distributed to ring recipients.
