20 Creative Graduation Caps


For some students, a graduation cap is just a piece of cardboard covered in silk. For others, it’s a piece of art waiting to happen. These 20 graduation caps certainly make a bold statement, and the students who wear them must have put a lot of creativity into the message they wanted their mortarboard to send. Feel free to let these caps inspire your own cap’s appearance for UK’s upcoming commencement ceremony!
