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.
Spring 2020 non-graduate ring recipients are invited to attend a re-scheduled Ring Ceremony on Saturday, September 12, 2020. More information regarding the details about this Ring Ceremony will be shared through email by the Junior Class Advisor.
