Class Of 2016: We Want To See Your Decorated Graduation Caps

Last year, we proved that you don’t need to be an art major to sport an awesome hand-decorated cap at graduation.

As the trend continues, graduation caps seem to become more and more eccentric and unforgettable each year. Even though Penn State is huge, each student carves their own path and has individual accomplishments to celebrate. In order to show just how unique all of our graduates are, we want to see all the caps: whether it’s a beloved quote, an inside joke, a shout-out to your Greek org, or a Nittany Lion logo.

Since it’s that time of year again, show us what’s special about the class of 2016. If your graduation cap symbolizes something you’re proud of, let us know.

Please send all submissions to [email protected] and include the following:

  • A photo of your cap
  • Your name
  • Your graduation year
  • Your major
  • Any additional information you’d like to share pertaining to your cap

We look forward to seeing your cap!
