With our commitment to the health and wellness of the Woods community including the Sister of Providence, the College is postponing the Ring Ceremony, originally scheduled for March 21.
In this highly anticipated and moving ceremony, qualified students receive Woods rings, a unique onyx and gold ring — a symbol of pride, friendships, academic achievement and personal growth. With its distinctive design, only SMWC students and alumni have the privilege of wearing the Ring. The oak leaves signify knowledge and the six acorns represent the founders of the College. Students earn their participation in the ceremony through academic success in their junior year at SMWC, or for graduate students, when they are three-quarters of the way toward completion of their degrees.
