Class of 2018: Grad Caps

Every year around graduation, I look forward to admiring the graduation caps decorated by seniors. Each cap tells you a little bit about the graduate and summarizes their four-year journey at JMU. Often, you’ll discover what they were involved in on-campus, their favorite quote, or their major. As an underclassman, I was so excited for the day to come where I would decorate my own cap and get to summarize my JMU experience. Now being a senior with only a few days until I walk the stage and receive my diploma, I can say that decorating my grad cap was more difficult than I initially thought.  “How can I summarize my four years with one simple design?” and Am I really graduating?” both crossed my mind a thousand times as I started brainstorming my design. After all, I feel so sentimental about leaving a place that has given me so much. Although it is just a purple cap with a tassel, grad caps embody what JMU means to that individual. 

Take a look at some beautiful grad cap designs, representing JMU’s Class of 2018:
