First given in 1922 by the Athletics Department to the best all-around female undergraduate athlete, the C-Ring has evolved over the last 87 years to become an all-university award based on several rigorous criteria.

"One of the exciting things about the C-Ring each year is the personal stories we get to hear. I find it very motivating when I, as a staff and faculty member, hear what these young women are doing even while still students," says Barb Rinto, director of the UC Women's Center. "Imagine the effect all these C-Ring recipients and nominees are having on the world when they graduate."
