Pinning Ceremony

16th Annual Pinning Ceremony

Friday, August 21, 2020 at 6 p.m.

Facebook Live (UIW Campus Engagement)

Join the community tradition of welcoming students to UIW through a symbolic ceremony of giving lapel pins to all incoming, first time students. This event marks the start of your collegiate journey with the University seal on the incoming pins which reflect the same seal that will decorate your class ring during commencement.

The Office of Campus Engagement will be working closely with both Admissions and Residence Life to ensure all students get their pins prior to the Pinning Ceremony. All undergraduate students will have their pins either ready for pick up during move-in or they will be mailed.

The addresses that will be used are those filed as permanent addresses with admissions.

The Pinning Ceremony will take place on Facebook Live on the UIW Campus Engagement page, so be sure to follow our page. A Facebook event has been created and will keep all students, families, and guests updated on announcements and details closer to the ceremony date.

We are limited on the number of pins available and while we may not be able to replace or resend pins a second time prior to the ceremony date, we will have a limited number available in case pins are lost in the mail. Any replacement pins would have need to be picked up from the Campus Engagement Office on UIW Main Campus.

Have any additional questions? Reach out to the Campus Engagement Office at  or (210) 829-6034.
