WPI Official Rings

As we begin C-Term, we wanted to inform you that Balfour will be on campus Wed., January 20 and Thurs., January 21, 11:30 am-6 pm at the Bookstore. This will be your last opportunity to order and receive your WPI ring at the Ring Ceremony (Friday, March 25). You can visit balfour.com/wpi in advance for ring options.

If you have any questions about the WPI Ring or Ring Ceremony, please feel free to contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 508-831-5600 or alumni-office@wpi.edu

Each gold ring symbolically captures the uniqueness of WPI. The top of the ring features the WPI seal. The central shield contains symbols related to the history and mission of the Institute: the heart represents Worcester as being at the heart of the Commonwealth, two open books and an arm and hammer represent WPI's heritage of balancing theory and application. WPI's full name and founding date, in Roman numerals, encircle the shield.

The first two buildings on campus, the Two Towers, are seen on one side of the Official Ring and represent the balance of theory and practice. The Goat's Head is depicted on the other side of the ring. The tradition of this longstanding symbol has evolved over the years and today is at the heart of several class rivalry events.

The Official Ring is a lifelong connection to your experience at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. WPI values the pursuit of innovation, academic inquiry, and excellence. These attributes will continue with you. 


You may select from 10K, 14K or 18K yellow or white gold. The inside of the ring may be personalized by engraving the name or initials, up to 18 characters.

For more information, including photos of available rings, pricing, and an order form, please visit Balfour. 

Wear the ring and carry its meaning with you.
