Remarks PENDING - Amended in Committee
Whereas Currently, Jostens provides class rings to UTA students, and the official class ring of UTA has an outdated design; and
Whereas UT Austin, UT San Antonio, UT El Paso, UT Brownsville, UT Dallas, and even UT Tyler all have official class rings; and
Whereas We can create a more traditional connection to the images and regalia of the university by providing an updated official class ring.
Be It Further Resolved That UTA form a committee of students, faculty, staff, and alumni to redesign the official class ring; and
Be It Further Resolved That This committee also develops requirements for receiving a class ring, either by credit hours or status at the university; and
Be It Further Resolved That The committee also works on developing a program to distribute the rings to students, such as a ring day or ceremony.
