The design for the centennial class ring has been revealed. 400 rings have been ordered, valued at over $400,000 each. President Higdon said it took nearly “the entire endowment” to fund the project. Alumni and trustees agreed with the graduating senior class that it “was totally worth it. I mean look at that sucker.”
