We Want To See Your Decorated Graduation Caps

Every Penn State student shares a little bit of creativity whether they know it or not, so why leave graduation caps plain and un-decorated?

Acting as the perfect stress reliever during your last finals week, decorating your cap gives you the perfect opportunity to express your excitement or love for Penn State. Plus, it’s easier for your parents and grandparents to spot you in the crowd of more than 1,000 undergrads.

Since it’s become such a popular trend at commencement ceremonies, we are calling on all art majors, graphic design students, and yes, even engineers to send us pictures of your decorated graduation caps. If you treated your cap to some bedazzling, a painted Nittany Lion, or even your Greek letters, then we want to see it.

Of course, this isn’t just for graduating seniors. If you kept your cap and are looking to show it off, please send it our way as well.

For submissions, please email [email protected] with the following:

  • Photo of your cap
  • Name
  • Graduation year
  • Major
  • Any story that goes with the design

We look forward to seeing your caps!
