Class Ring If you would like to purchase a ring, visit the Josten website. Class Gift The Class of 2017 established the Student Relief Fund, a distinctive opportunity to support future students who face financial hardship that threatens their academic progress during their time at Rensselaer. The fund is intended to provide a one-time grant to matriculated undergraduate students in immediate need. The Class of 2018 has decided to supplement the fund as their class gift. To date, through class ring sales and Class of 2018 fundraising efforts, the class has raised over $9,000. Class of 2018 members can still contribute here. Seniors who contribute $100 or more by June 30 will become members of the prestigious Annual Patroon Society at Rensselaer. Their names will appear on the Class of 2018 Patroons plaque that will hang in the Union. As leaders among their peers, Patroons will receive invitations to exclusive events and special communications from the Institute.
