    More Information

    The Hood ring, which students begin wearing as juniors, symbolizes a bond between Hood alumni and students who will graduate in years to come. They're great conversation starters when students spot folks wearing Hood rings out in the world—which they often do, miles from campus. Juniors first don their Hood rings at a ring ceremony which is attended by family and friends. 

    If you would like to purchase a Hood ring, orders may be arranged through Herff Jones or at the Hood College Gear Shop in the Whitaker Campus Center at 301-696-3480 or gearshop@hood.edu.
