New Official UI Class Ring Collection Available For December Graduation

December 2006 University of Iowa graduates will have an opportunity to select a class ring from the new official ring collection this week at the University Book Store. A representative from the Herff Jones ring company will be in the store, located on the ground floor of the Iowa Memorial Union, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6, and Thursday, Dec. 7 to answer questions and assist graduates with the selection of their unique rings.

The ring collection was created for and by the students and alumni of the UI, resulting in a one-of-a-kind design, which features the Old Capitol, Tiger Hawk logo and a capital "I" for Iowa. The unique collection of rings symbolizes the academic excellence and Hawkeye spirit Iowa students and alumni treasure.

Members of the UI Alumni Association, university departmental representatives, University Book Store, and students have been working for months to develop the only ring collection officially recognized by the university.
