BATON ROUGE – LSU is proud to present the LSU Ring to students earning the right to wear it at an official ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 1 p.m. in the LSU Student Union Theater. The ceremony is open to LSU students receiving rings and their guests.

“The LSU Ring is a long standing symbol of student success at our university,” said Kurt Keppler, LSU vice chancellor for student life & enrollment. “As our graduates go out in the world, the LSU Ring is a visible reminder of their education and experiences at LSU.”

The LSU Ring Tradition Committee, comprised of student leaders and alumni, was established in 1998. The committee recently added new elements to the LSU Ring experience. The most exciting of these includes each LSU Ring spending the night prior to the ring ceremony in Mike the Tiger’s Habitat. During the ceremony, Mike the Tiger mascot will present each student his or her ring.

LSU alumnus and actor Michael Papajohn will be the keynote speaker.

The LSU Ring is reserved for alumni, undergraduates who have attained 75 credit hours and graduate students who have completed 18 credit hours. Each ring, manufactured by Balfour, is handcrafted, representing the uniqueness of LSU and serving as a lasting symbol of our proud traditions and values.


The LSU Ring Ceremony is coordinated by LSU Student Life & Enrollment, in partnership with LSU Finance & Administrative Services and the LSU Alumni Association. Visit for more information about the LSU Ring.
