No! This is part of the fun in wearing a class ring! Many schools will have a prestigious “turning of the ring” ceremony at or near commencement. This ceremony is one of pride and accomplishment. There could be several kinds of unique traditions about who turns your ring, but the bottom line is that once you graduate, the ring is turned so that your school name is now facing out, towards other people. This turning of the ring symbolizes that you have graduated and are now on your way to do big things in the world.
