    I went to the University of Ottawa (in Canada) and I wear my school ring on my right hand every day. My mom got it for me as a grad gift.

    I voted “didn’t buy one” but in all honesty, I wasn’t aware these existed for college – is it a regional thing?

    I wear mine on my right pinky. Graduated from a University in Nova Scotia Canada, in May…so I wear it all of the time now, although that might change in the future.

    I didn’t get one but I felt like a minority. FH went to The Citadel and they take getting their rings pretty seriously. He never takes his off, even for sleep/showers. Its a giant gold ring so we took it into consideration when we picked out his wedding band. Mine is white gold so we went with two-tone so that ours would somewhat blend and still match his class ring.

    I have my old diamond ring that I used to wear on my left hand that I got in grad school and my college ring–those now compete for time on my right hand (I rarely wear them both). My left hand is only for wedding rings. 🙂

    Funny thing, this means that I am always wearing at least two colors of gold, sometimes three!

     

    e ring: rose gold with platinum sides

    diamond ring: white gold

    class ring: yellow gold

    Never got my class ring.  Don’t really like them.  None of my friends from college got them either.

    I went to Texas Tech & most females I know do not still wear their class rings; but boys are a different story. ESP boys that went to A&M, they ALWAYS wear their rings.

    But, even the A&M girls I know, don’t wear their class rings years after graduation..but I really think its just a pesonal opinion/ personal style.

    Actually I can’t get any of my college rings off so I am stuck with them!

    DH and I both went to Georgia Tech and neither of us got class rings.  I know some people who did though so it certainly wasn’t uncommon.  Personally, I find it a little odd to see people wearing class rings more than a few years past graduation so I didn’t want to spend all that money on something I would only wear for a couple of years and then never put on again.

    ETA: I didn’t get a high school class ring either for the exact same reason.

    Oh oops I didn’t even get one for college.  I misread the post and thought it was for high school.  I don’t wear my high school one much (even though I got one that doesn’t look like a traditional class ring).

    I went to Wheaton College in Massachusetts for undergrad and I’m going to FSU for law school. Didn’t/not getting a class ring. I know very few people who got them.

    I’m an Aggie. I hardly wear my ring but my FI does all the time. I wear it when I go to interviews and when I am out in college station, but otherwise it sits at home. Never liked how big it was and have never liked wearing rings on my right hand at all.

    I also meant to say, I only got one because it was such a huge tradition at A&M, otherwise I wouldn’t. I didn’t want to look back 10 years from now and regret not getting it. I will never regret getting it either.
