It happened on Friday the 14th of September at the Clayton Williams Alumni Center around 4:30. My parents came in, my cousin was there, my roommate was there, friends were all going to be there too. All for the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Ring Day! A very special day indeed. This is one of the days (besides graduation) that I have been working towards and it felt so gratifying to have my right hand feel a little heavier when my dad slipped the ring on my finger. I had my dad give my ring to me since he is a fellow Aggie and part of the reason that I am at A&M in the first place. It’s hard to tell who was more excited.
The other side of this tradition: the ring dunk. It happened… It was horrible but it had to be done. 4 beers, 1 minute 20 seconds, and one shiny Aggie ring caught in my teeth and it’s official official. WHOOP!
