Ring Symbolism

Each ring symbolically captures the essence of OSU with the prominent “O” having “OSU” running within a diagonal stripe representing the incursion of the Land Run of 1889. The University name is spelled out around the crown, with the date of the university's foundation at the base. Click here to watch a video about the crafting of the ring.

One side of the ring features the University seal. The triangle represents the three parts of the mission of Oklahoma State University – Instruction, Research and Extension, which surround the lamp of learning.  The seal is on a background of wheat which symbolizes OSU's land grant status.


The other side features the repository of knowledge, the Edmon Low Library, as well as the University mascot, Pistol Pete, surrounded by the waving wheat of Oklahoma.

Connected for Life

Inside of each ring is engraved the phrase “Connected For Life,” emphasizing the deep and lasting bond that all graduates of OSU have with one another and the University.
