Ring Ceremony

When the university marked its sesquicentennial in 1995, students, alumni, faculty and staff began establishing new traditions to propel UMHB into the 21st century. An important step in this direction was to custom design an official school ring. The new ring carries symbols and features chosen to distinguish a UMHB student from all others and serve as a lasting symbol of proud traditions. The UMHB ring is a visible, tangible manifestation of that ever-present bond between UMHB and its alumni.

UMHB Families

We need your help!

We would like to invite our families to play a role at our 2020 Ring Ceremony, by submitting a video to be used to introduce your student. We are asking the videos be uploaded via the button below and include your family announcing the name and hometown of your senior. These videos will be played via the live stream as the student is announced to come receive their ring. Videos may be filmed with the rear camera of your cell phone, and only one video per student will be allowed. All videos must be submitted by Monday, September 28, 2020.

We want to make sure each of our students has their family represented in the Ring Ceremony this year. If you need help creating a video here are some tips and pointers. Each video should be less than 10 seconds long and include the students full name and their hometown. Get creative and have fun celebrating your student.
