The Official Texas Tech Class Ring
The Official Texas Tech Class Ring would make a great gift for any graduate of Texas Tech. The Texas Tech Alumni Association Official Class Ring is a tradition that has been brought back from the 1950s. This ring evokes special memories of the occasions and traditions of Texas Tech - the “Fight Song” sung at the stadium with the Masked Rider going hell-bent for leather along the sidelines. Raider Red giving fans the “Guns Up” and firing his shotguns. The unforgettable images created during the Carol of Lights where the red, white and gold holiday lights cast their spell over the campus. The ring is a symbolic, continuous link with classmates, friends and generations of alumni.

The ring is custom-made in a choice of 10, 14 or 18-karat solid yellow, or white gold. The ring is available with, or without, diamonds or cubic zirconias. Balfour, the ring supplier, provides an interest-free monthly installment plan.

To order an official class ring, contact Mandy Wiley at the Texas Tech Alumni Association at or by phone at 806.742.3641 ext. 243.

The Texas Tech Alumni Association would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays!
