The One Ring Ceremony at Junior Parents Weekend 2016


It's hard to believe that it has been a month since our campus was buzzing with the sound of eager, proud parents. Junior Parents Weekends brought rare occurrences like the dining halls being all dolled up to give parents a taste of the fine dining we are graced with about once a year during Visitas, Freshman Parents Weekend, and the like. It included the kinds of events parents love like a kick-off show featuring everything from speeches by President Faust and Dean Khurana to a performance by Harvard's very own marching band. And most uniquely (at least in our humble opinion), the festivities included the One Ring Ceremony, an event that only happens during Junior Parents Weekend and the place where the junior class gets to unveil their class rings for the very first time.

It was definitely another one of those things where the parents were far more excited going into it than the actual students getting the rings, but with things like a performance from the Din & Tonics, a hilarious speech by UC Vice President Danny Banks, and photographers for everyone to get all the blocking group "kiss the ring" cover photos they could dream of, everyone seemed to enjoy the Ceremony. All in all, the rings were shining, smiles were glistening, and the (very non-alcoholic) apple cider was pouring. 



It was lit, fam.
