Corps of Cadets Ring Centennial

Wooden NU Class Rings to Sponsor and Purchase

NU "1819" Wooden Class Ring Replica

Josh Paille, NU ’11, and his wife Ashley of Theta Pi Woodshop are on a mission.  

Since 1959, every Norwich University Corps of Cadets ring has featured the traditional 1819 side and a side that is unique to that class. In honor of the NUCC Ring Centennial, Josh and Ashley are producing handcrafted wood versions of the unique designs on each class ring. A complete set of ring plaques will be exhibited at Homecoming 2023. Individual class rings are also available for order.

These beautiful plaques are made of Yellowheart wood.  The ‘stone’ of the ring is Bloodwood. Each piece is triple coated in clear glaze enamel for a long-lasting shine. Rings measure approx. 10.5” tall x 8” wide x 1” thick.
