University of Lethbridge Alumni Association “Rings” in 45th Anniversary

The University of Lethbridge Alumni Association has launched the Fiat Lux Ring, helping alumni to show their pride in the U of L in a distinctive fashion.

The ring will be officially unveiled on Thursday, January 26 at a noon-hour BBQ and launch of the U of L’s 45th anniversary activities.

A brief presentation will take place in the University Hall Atrium.
The design, chosen after a competition, is by current U of L Fine Arts (New Media) student Eric Klempnauer and  is simple and distinctive -- cast in sterling silver, the band features the U of L’s traditional fiery sun emblem between the University’s motto, Fiat Lux (Let there be light).

Klempnauer will be in attendance at the launch event, and when he graduates, will receive the first ring.

Kathy Lewis, the current President of the Alumni Association, said that the ring concept  is one that all graduates can embrace, and that  its distinctive design will be a conversation starter.

“Our graduates are everywhere, and making a real difference around the world,” Lewis said.

“We were looking for a way for them to identify each other no matter where they were, and we also wanted a design that would show off our differences. I believe Eric accomplished that, and it is also especially meaningful that a current student – and future member of our alumni community – designed the rings for us.”

The design is suitable for men and women. Additional engraving is available on the inside of the band, and the ring comes with a specific registry number linked to the owner.

The Fiat Lux Ring costs $249 + tax. If required, a $10 shipping fee will apply.
