C-Ring is an award given each spring to an outstanding graduating senior woman at UC. Selected by a diverse committee of UC faculty, staff, students and alumnae, the winner is announced at an annual event.
First given in 1922 by the Athletics Department to the best "all around gal," the C-Ring has evolved over the last 90-plus years to become an all-university award based on several rigorous criteria. In order to be eligible for nomination, a woman must have a minimum 3.4 grade point average (GPA). The nominees must demonstrate a commitment to the betterment of our campus, community and the advancement of women. Nominations may come from any faculty, staff or alumni. The selection committee reviews the nominations and an essay by each nominee and then conducts a personal interview before making its final selection.
