Symbols of the UNT Ring

    • The top of the UNT ring is adorned with the Lone Star, representing our great state, and an optional green stone – our school color since 1903.

    • One side of the ring features our University seal. The University seal includes the lamp of learning, symbolizing academic achievement and our continuous pursuit of excellence; elements of the State of Texas seal-the Lone Star, encircled by olive and live oak branches. . . signifying peace and strength, respectively.

    • At the bottom of the UNT seal rests the year of our University’s founding. . .1890.

    • Below the seal, our official mascot, the soaring Eagle, is shown with wings spread from side to side. Its talons are shown, to which we pay tribute through our eagle claw hand signal, representing our pride and unity.

    • The McConell Tower, rising above the Hurley Administration Building, is featured on the opposite side of the ring.

    • The hands of the first clock face on the tower are set at one o’clock, honoring the internationally recognized One O’Clock Lab Jazz Band.

    • The hands of the second face are set at seven o’clock, recalling the evening curfew for students at Texas Normal College and Teacher Training Institute in 1892.

    • While you are a student, it is tradition to wear the ring with the “University of North Texas” name facing toward you prior to graduation; reminding you of your goals and achievements on the horizon. At your graduation ceremony, your ring will be turned around when you move your tassel, for the world to see that you are a graduate of UNT.
