The Office of Alumni Affairs and the UT Bookstore have unveiled the official University of Tennessee ring, available only to alumni and students who have earned at least 60 credit hours from UT.
Graduate students who have earned at least 20 credit hours are also invited to wear the official ring.
Each official UT ring can be adorned with the “Power T,” the official UT Knoxville seal, the UT checkerboard, an image of Ayres Hall, or an image of the Volunteer Statue (a.k.a. the Torchbearer statue).
Starting August 23, the new ring will be on display in the UT Bookstore and other locations around campus. In addition, a representative from Jostens will be onsite at the UT Bookstore before each home football game in September to assist you with the purchase and sizing of your ring.
If you’d like to place your order by phone, you may call Jostens at 800-854-7464 or visit the official UT/Jostens website.
If you order your ring by Tuesday, September 21, your ring will be delivered in time for you to participate in UT’s inaugural Official Ring Ceremony, scheduled for Tuesday, November 9. During the ceremony, Chancellor Jimmy Cheek and the college deans will present you with your new ring. Parents and guests will be invited to attend.
The first 500 ring orders also will include a special engraved number inside the ring to let each recipient know that he or she has purchased one of the very first official UT rings.
