At the end of the Fall and Spring semesters, students who have completed over 75 hours have the opportunity to be a part of a long-standing tradition that is unique to Auburn. This tradition is Ring Night and Ring Ceremony. At Ring Night, the rings are left on the Auburn seal from 1856, or 6:56 PM, until the current graduation year. This is symbolic of the rings absorbing all of Auburn?s history from founding to present. This also means the rings are placed under the curse of the seal. A few days later at the Ring Ceremony, the ring recipient dips their ring in water from the President's fountain which removes the curse, but leaves the Auburn spirit behind to live on in the ring and in the heart of its owner forevermore. Ring recipients conclude the traditional ceremony by placing the cleansed ring on their finger with the words "Auburn University" facing inward.
