Texas A&M University at Qatar recently hosted its annual Run for the Ring in Oxygen Park in Education City. Organized by the Department of Student Affairs, Run for The Ring is a 5K run/walk promoting the Texas A&M tradition of the Aggie Ring.

Each student who finished the course was entered into a drawing to win a certificate for a free Aggie Ring. The Aggie Ring is the most visible symbol of the Aggie Network that connects graduates of Texas A&M around the world. Dating back more than 100 years, the Aggie Ring is a tradition that is deep in symbolism and represents the values every Aggie should hold: Excellence, Integrity, Leadership, Loyalty, Respect and Selfless Service. Those who have earned the right to wear the Aggie Ring have cleared some of the toughest requirements in the United States for a class ring, making it one of the most treasured items an Aggie possesses.
