Recognizing the need for an ongoing symbol to represent the honor and traditions of the University, Balfour along with the Alumni Association, has created the Official Class Ring of Miami University. They have distilled the essence of Miami into a classic icon that identifies the wearer as a person of excellence - an individual of integrity and leadership - a graduate of Miami.
Each men's and women's ring symbolically captures the essence of Miami University with the University's Seal carved into the ring. First drawn in 1826, the Seal contains the motto Prodesse Quam Conspici, "to accomplish rather than to be conspicuous." The open book represents accumulation of knowledge, the globe represents the world of the present, and the telescope symbolizes probing the future. Wear the ring and carry all the Seal's many meanings with you.
The Official Class Ring is available exclusively to enrolled students who have completed at least 64 credit hours and achieved junior or senior standing. It is also available to all graduates of Miami University. For more information visit Balfour.
