Putting Personality Into Graduation With The Graduation Caps

On May 12, Lynn students will walk across the graduation stage with their cap and gown. With the event just around the corner, decoration is at the forefront of some students’ minds.

“I want to put something on my cap that I can look back on in the future and remember all of the good times,” said Shabach Tyus, senior. “I love dancing. Something related to dancing would be perfect.”

For many, finding a passionate starting point is the best way to begin their adornment process. Once this is decided, students should then look to find a theme related to their passion. After these vital pieces of the puzzle have been completed, everything else will fall into place.

For those very family-oriented, there have been multiple options for graduates to dedicate their attire to their loved ones. In some cases, a simple thank you to mom and dad can be turned into a work of art with a little digital magic.

For an outside-of-the-box look, some have gone as far as printing out pictures of their family members as decoration.

“I haven’t set my decoration ideas in stone,” said Justin Ruiz, senior.  “Without a doubt, I want to honor my family through whatever I do.”

Even some athletics stars have shared their creativity at graduation ceremonies across the nation. Many have designed their cap to look like their favorite sport, while others have included some of their favorite athletic wear brands like Nike.

To stand out at graduation, all it takes is a little creativity and passion.  When Lynn’s grand occasion takes place in May, the decorations will help make the day that much more special.
