MSU Ring March
Event specifics, including time and location, will be announced soon.

Michigan State University’s Ring March is held on campus every year for current students and graduates alike. Rings are kept in Beaumont Tower overnight under the watch of the Tower Guard, and are moved to the Spartan Statue the next day. Alumni and students receiving their rings meet at the Spartan Statue and march to Beaumont with their families, friends, and members of the Spartan Marching Band. In the tower courtyard, each Spartan is bestowed their ring by whomever they have chosen — an intimate moment to share with someone significant to their college experience.
