Coming to Norwich one of the biggest things I kept hearing about was the ring. While I am a civilian student, I still feel that the ring symbolizes a huge step in life and is a great symbol of accomplishment. A few months ago I designed and ordered my ring and have been anxiously waiting ever since. The day is slowly approaching when I get to try it on and when I get to go receive my ring as well. I think having that ring will remind me of how close I am to graduating from college. Not many people in my family have done this so I pride myself on this accomplishment. I have worked hard to get the opportunity to purchase and wear my ring proudly. I can say for any underclassmen reading this, the excitement gets bigger and bigger the closer you get to that day. I know one day you will be in my shoes and all I can say is congratulations and wear your ring proudly.
