How to Decorate Your Graduation Cap

Get creative! Personalize your graduation cap with a design, quote, or funny anecdote that showcases your educational journey at Champlain College.

Champlain students are known for being creative and innovative, so let’s see what you got!

Is there a quote that speaks to what you’ve accomplished at Champlain? Is there a related meme that gives you a good laugh? Or maybe you just want to go crazy with a bedazzler? Rummage around your home to see what you have lying around that could work as decoration. Or, raid the craft aisle at the grocery store during your next trip. You could also order some materials from your local craft store that supports delivery or curbside pickup!

However you decide to decorate, wear your cap for the celebration on May 9, and if you’re able to make it back for our in-person ceremony, you can show it off there, too. Either way, we want to see what you come up with!

Share your photos with us by using the hashtag #ChampGrad on Instagram feed or Twitter, direct messaging us on social media, or emailing graduation@champlain.edu.
