Gator Wrap Ring

The Gator Wrap Tradition

The University of Florida Ring Dance hosted by the Class Councils and Student Activities and Involvement will take place at Emerson Alumni Hall on Wednesday, April 24, 2024 from 6-8pm. 

The tradition-rich event will celebrate the Junior and Senior Classes as they transition into their time as a Senior or Graduate of the university. Bringing back iconic traditions from dances throughout the university’s history, this exciting event will feature highlights from the Class of 2025 and 2024, the presentation and distribution of the Class Ring hosted by Herff Jones, as well as food, dancing and fun!  

Prior to the Ring Dance, the class rings will be placed in Century Tower overnight. When the ring emerges the next morning, it will be infused with the spirit of the Gator Nation and the passion of past alumni.  

Students who purchase their ring at Ring Week or Grad Fair can pick up their ring at the Ring Dance. Additionally, Herff Jones will be onsite at the event with rings for students to see and order. The deadline to purchase a class ring in order to receive their ring at Ring Dance is February 23, 2024. The UF Bookstore will be hosting two events in order to allow students to learn about and receive discounts on the Gator Wrap Ring and other graduation regalia. 

The Gator Wrap Tradition

The Gator Wrap is a distinctive and unique ring. No other university has a deeper sense of tradition and pride than the University of Florida. No matter what years you spent at the university, you will always share a special bond with fellow Gators.

The Gator Wrap has been a tradition among the University of Florida students and alumni since the late 1930’s. Designed by former student body president, Stephen C. O’Connell, the Gator Wrap encompasses the traditions and memories that make up the University of Florida experience.

The Gator Wrap is unique and distinguishable, just like a Florida Gator. This is your heritage; wear it well.
