Kansas State University graduates can display their purple pride long after leaving their alma mater with an Official K-State Ring.
The ring, which was designed based on input from K-State students, reflects the university's culture and tradition.
The K-State Alumni Association is coordinating the ring program with the university and K-State Student Union Bookstore. Balfour, a company specializing in class rings, will produce the rings.
Each spring, the Alumni Association sponsors a ring ceremony for new recipients of the official K-State Ring.
To purchase a ring, a student must have completed 60 K-State resident class credits. If students transfer to K-State, they must have accumulated 90 total credits. Graduates of K-State automatically qualify for the Official K-State Ring.

For women, there are three design options with a metal or stone-top traditional ring or a signet ring, and men have two design options. Kansas State University Polytechnic students have a special side design, as do students in the College of Veterinary Medicine.
