The ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. in the Ruby Grand Hall of the Erickson Alumni Center.
Remarks will be given by Stephen Douglas, president and chief executive officer of the WVU Alumni Association. The rings will be presented to each student individually by Ken Gray, vice president of Student Affairs, and Mountaineer Parents Club Executive Director Sabrina Cave will read the names.
