Texas A&M Ring Ceremony helped bring Aggies together virtually to celebrate receiving their class rings.
This year’s spring terms may look a little different than previous years for university students. In early March, colleges across the country cancelled in person classes and ultimately switched to live streams for the foreseeable future. For the class of 2020, this meant graduation ceremonies were either cancelled or postponed along with all of the fun grad activities leading up to the big day. The much-anticipated TAMU Aggie Ring Day event for the 6,500 students receiving their class rings was converted to at-home deliveries.
Here's how Photoboxx Digital Display helped bring the Aggie Network together virtually to celebrate this milestone moment:
- Senior students who had ring eligibility were instructed to order aggie ring online
- Students received special packages from the official senior ring committee with their Aggie Rings in the mail
- Aggie grads were encouraged to share photos of their at-home celebrations
- They posted their photos to social media using the hashtag #MyAggieRing
- The Association of Former Students shared their photos via live Digital Displays on their online site.
With Photoboxx, paired with the students Aggie ring program, more than 250 photos were collected, allowing The Association to share the joy through social media, video and the alumni magazine. The special moments that were captured truly showed Aggies’ jubilation upon receiving the hard-earned and time-honored symbol they will wear throughout their lives.
Digital Display helped create a fun experience for recent Aggie grads to celebrate receiving their hard earned class rings. During a time when we’re all expected to stay apart, Texas A&M Association of Former Students created a virtual experience using Digital Display to bring students together.
