As a way to support and foster the emotional ties and traditions of the College, Wilson alumnae and students, the program matches donated rings with current students. These legacies “ring it forward” to a new generation of Wilson alumnae.
The Alumnae Association of Wilson College is grateful for these donor alumnae’s generosity. The rings’ new owners will add their Wilson stories to those of alumnae as they participate in this tradition.
To date, 10 pairings have been made connecting alumnae and students in this special bond Ring-It-Forward: Passing Down a Legacy
Throughout the years the highlight of a graduate’s year has been receiving their Wilson ring. A symbol of their four years and the unending bonds formed, the Wilson ring is a treasured piece of history imbued with the Wilson spirit. Many alumnae look back fondly on all the places their rings have gone with them and the doors it has opened. Whether it be worn in an interview or down the aisle, alumnae take pride in carrying the Wilson spirit with them wherever they may go. Recently, the Alumnae Association has made a call for these precious pieces to be passed down, asking alumnae to “ring it forward” to a new generation of Wilson students. This opportunity builds on the importance of our past and all the optimism we have for the future. A Wilson ring is not just a piece of jewelry, bought to remember four years of education; it is a symbol of the honor, integrity, and loyalty that encompasses what it means to be a Wilson graduate.
