Ring Dance Class of 2025

Ring dance, also known as ring dining out, is a ritual that began with the Class of 1959 and can be traced all the way back to the West Point Class of 1835. This celebration is exclusively for two-degree cadets before the second-class cadets become first-class cadets and is where they receive their class rings and unveil the class crest.

The 2025 crest design team began drafting their crest over a year ago. Their crest retains the same elements of every class crest: the class number, the class year, the Polaris star, and the eagle.

The class crest is one of the most treasured representations of class unity and class pride. Until graduation, the class will wear the ring with the class crest facing inward, closest to their hearts. After graduation, the ring is turned so that the Academy Crest is closest to the heart of an officer ready and willing to protect and defend with the training they have received.

This is a unique tradition in which all graduates of the Academy are forever united. Through the blood and the sweat, the triumphs, and the failures, they become brothers and sisters for life.

The Class of 2025 celebrated this milestone in their Academy journey with their friends, cadet squadrons and members from the Legacy class of 1975.

Congratulations class of 2025!
