Graduation is a monumental event in any student’s life. It celebrates the culmination of their academic efforts and the beginning of their professional careers. While graduation marks the end of their educational journey, it also represents the start of an individual’s career.

Graduation is a significant milestone that deserves to be celebrated unforgettably. One way to make the day memorable is to decorate your graduation cap to reflect your achievements. 

WVJC takes great pride in our student’s success, and we understand the significance of graduation. We put together seven ideas for graduation cap decorations to help you celebrate your graduation in style!

1. The Tassel Was Worth The Hassle

You’ve heard the quote, “The tassel was worth the hassle,” regarding graduation. This saying is popular for a reason, and it makes a great quote to put on a graduation cap. The simple saying perfectly wraps up the academic experience: sometimes challenging but ultimately rewarding.

2. Movie or TV Show Quote

Using a quote from your favorite movie or TV show to adorn your graduation cap is a great way to show your personality and incorporate a piece of your favorite fictional characters into your graduation day. There are unlimited ideas for the occasion, from lighthearted and funny to sentimental and meaningful. 

3. College Pride

Putting your college’s colors, mascot, slogan, or logo on your graduation cap is an excellent way to commemorate your time as a student. Decorating your cap with reminders of the college where you earned your degree or diploma can remind you of the memories you made as a student for years to come. 

4. Photos of Loved Ones

Showcasing photos of the people most important to you on your graduation cap is an excellent way to pay homage to those who supported you throughout your education. Including pictures of your support system, whether children, spouses, parents, friends, or others who impacted your life, is a sentimental way to show them that you appreciate their encouragement. 

5. Pop Culture Reference

Pop culture references are an excellent way to remember what happened in the world the year you graduated. Looking back at your graduation cap can provide you with a sense of nostalgia, and decorating it with a pop culture reference will surely take you back to your graduation year. 

6. Career-Related Quote

Graduation signifies the transition from student to working professional, and what more fitting way to jump into your career than using a quote related to your field on your graduation cap? Ideas for those going into a healthcare or professional services career are endless.
