The Graduation Day happens to be one of the best memorable instances for every student. Clad in ceremony dress with a golden tasseled cap, every student looks utterly dignified on this particular day. Beyond these graduation caps and gowns, lies a far deeper meaning. The origin of these caps comes from the Celtic Groups of yesteryears where it was mostly worn by priests in churches and these caps signified the status and rank of the person wearing it. These caps symbolize intelligence; were used to create a differentiation from the commons. Implication and the meaning stand the same even till today and when a student wears the graduation cap, it reflects their educational skills, ability, professionalism and diligence making them stand apart from the rest of the crowd.

Also sometimes referred as the ‘Mortarboard’ each cap has a tassel attached with it. The side on which the tassel hangs is important as it can differ depending on the level of one’s education. The tassel also bears a color which signifies the student’s field of study and in which they proved their excellence.

Graduation caps and gowns are available in a variety of materials and sometimes it can be available from the retail store of the University offering attractive discount to their students. Though all Universities do not have this facility and then can become a problem for the students. In such occasions, students can form a group of their own and get their graduation costume of preferred quality from a wholesale retailer..

Several rental agencies are also available on the web who rents out such costume at a far cheaper rate. But care must be taken when renting graduation costumes as the costume needs to fit you..
