Graduation is around the corner and COD graduates are looking for any way to stay ahead of the crowd and stand out. To a lot of people decorating a cap doesn’t seem like such a big deal, but for some, it’s a way to show their pride. Maybe while at College of the Desert there was a saying or some kind of image that got grads though the toughest days. Cap decorating seems to be sliding into the tradition territory. For a younger crowd, it’s expressed almost as a right of passage, as popularity grows for it, schools have made themselves flexible and allowed caps to be decorated.

For those that have yet to decorate their caps or don’t really have an idea of what to do. Always remember important cap decorating guidelines College of the Desert has:

Keep it appropriate

  • No vulgar language
  • No drug or alcohol references
  • No obstructing other peoples views
  • No safety hazards
  • Nothing that makes noises
  • No political statements

Show pride

  • For the school
  • For family
  • Where you’ll be attending
  • For your Major

Anything you put on the cap must lay flat. Anything that makes the cap taller or gets in the way will be confiscated by the staff.

With all the infinite possibles, just remember, make it something personal. From Disney to meme’s, so long as it’s inspiring and reflective of the time spent at COD, it’s bound to be a hit.
