Texas A&M students and family members line up outside the Williams Alumni Center, which is where they will be receiving their Aggie rings.

The Aggie Ring Day is where Texas A&M University students and their family members gather at the Clayton W. Williams Jr. Alumni Center to celebrate receiving the Aggie Ring.  The Aggie Ring is most visible symbol for the Aggie Network and represents important Aggie values.
