History of the Ring Tradition

The Ring Tradition at Mount St. Mary's is one of the oldest and most unique traditions in the country. As such, it has taken quite some time to gather together information from recent history, the Archives, and stories from Alumni. Please be patient as we compile, organize, and upload our historic tradition to the web. Any alumni who wishes to share his or her interesting, unique, or funny stories, please email Justin Janak,, so that we may include them in the telling of our story.

The first of many pages detailing the history of the Ring Tradition will be available for viewing in January. We will start with Recent History and the Current Creation of the Rings and work our way back through the decades, hopefully incorporating your story!
