Fun Graduation Cap Decoration Ideas For 2018 Grads

If you are a space nerd or claim yourself an explorer, you might consider choosing the Star Wars as your decoration theme.

First of all, I want to congratulate you in advance on getting your Bachelors, or Masters, or Ph.D. in whatever field you liked. It must have been an incredible journey full of tons of adventures, ups, and downs.

Before you take off on the next stage of your life, set aside the opportunity to absorb everything and acknowledge how far you've come.

Game Of Thrones

If you are a huge fan of the “Game Of Thrones” TV show, you are going to appreciate these following ideas a lot. Show off your spirit and love for the G.O.T. It’s time to celebrate even if “you know nothing.” Hand pick your favorite dialogue and theme color from the show and add your own details. I want to mention the quote by Tyrion Lannister, “Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.”


Personally speaking, I often feel like my college life is part of a game like a Pacman, or angry bird, or even Super Mario. I feel that way because you may have found yourself catching up with the course material or for an ‘A’ in any particular class. You may lose sometimes, but you also win. So, you might want to consider your love for video games in your graduation cap decoration. The list of popular video games and cartoons start from Tom & Jerry to Super Mario to Pokemon to Pacman to Candy Crush and still, the list goes on and on. The choice is yours. It would definitely look funny and cool.

Star Wars

If you are a space nerd or claim yourself an explorer, you might consider choosing the Star Wars as your decoration theme for instance. Again, the list of Space movies and books is infinite. This movie line " NEVER TELL ME THE ODDS" OR "MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU" is excellent for the Star Wars loving graduate-to-be. Whatever the probabilities maybe, you should go after your dreams and go positively in the future you have visualized for yourself. This grad cap would recall you for just that.

Flowery design

The flowery styled graduation cap idea isn't just fantastic to be that as it may, it additionally enables you to share a notable graduation quote on your extraordinary day. You may include a couple of your most favorite quotes which you might have lived throughout your college life to influence your graduation to top exceptional.

Tech design

You might have someone special in your life that you couldn’t have made it without. Well, it’s a great opportunity to consider thanking him/her or expressing your feelings to him/her. In addition to appreciating your loved ones, keep in mind about technologies and tools that helped you earn that degree. For instance, Google, Chegg, or Reddit. Thus, you may want to consider adding tech-based theme if you would like to do it.

I have tons of ideas in my mind so I’ll just list them below for you to explore:

Major Specific (Medical, Business, Engineering, Psychology, etc.)

For Food Lovers (Starbucks Coffee, Dunkin Donuts, McDonald’s, Pizza, etc.)

Nature Lovers (Beach, Hiking, Snowboarding, etc. [photos/theme])

Sports Lovers (Football, Baseball, Soccer, etc.)

Animal Lovers (Dinosaur, Cat, Dog, etc.)

Sorority/ Fraternity/ Greek Societies spirits would be also cool

An Open Letter To Those Not Graduating On Time

Graduating college in any number of years is an accomplishment to be proud of.

To the person that isn't graduating on time,

It sucks, and I won't lie to you and tell you it doesn't. The day you walk out of Advising, head hanging down because you aren't going to finish in four years, makes you feel ashamed of yourself. You did well in high school; you were always told you were smart, expected to be smart, so why couldn't you make it out in four years like you were supposed to?

You know you're going to have to tell your family, so you begin preparing yourself for the worst reactions possible. And telling your friends you won't be graduating with them will only add to that sense of hopelessness.

Soon, you'll see photos and posts from people you left high school with, talking about graduation and the wonderful lives they are about to begin in their new careers. You'll wonder how they did it, and you'll feel like a failure.

But you're not.

Graduating from college is a huge deal. It really is. And it will be no less of an accomplishment in five, six, or 10 years.

"According to the Department of Education, fewer than 40 percent of students who enter college each year graduate within four years, while almost 60 percent of students graduate in six years. At public schools, less than a third of students graduate on time."

Things happen. You might change your major. You might have financial troubles. You may take a year off to figure out exactly what you want to do. That's okay. Take all the time you need. The real world and your career will still be there whenever you graduate.

Guess what else. Your family will still love you, and your friends will still support you. Give them some credit. Your loved ones want you to be happy and successful. Don't get me wrong, they may be upset at first, but give them a chance. Odds are, when the emotions settle, they will go right back to asking how classes are going. And when you do get the news that you'll be graduating, they will celebrate with you, and they will be there in the crowd, waiting for you to walk across that stage.

Graduation will happen. If you attend your class and study hard, it will happen. There is no reason to rush. Just do your best. Try your hardest. Take classes when you can. Just by doing that, you're doing more than so many others are able to do.

"Among 18 countries tracked by the OECD, the United States finished last (46 percent) for the percentage of students who completed college once they started it."

You'll get there. Take your time. Enjoy your classes. Find new interests. Study what you love. Embrace opportunities. Study abroad. Take that weird elective class. This is your time to take in everything the world has to offer. Take advantage of that. You'll graduate when you graduate, filled with pride and wisdom. And when they call your name, and you walk across that stage, hold your head up high, because you've earned every bit of your degree.

Graduating from college takes countless hours of studying, long hours in the library, and a tremendous amount of dedication. Don't add pressure to yourself by setting a timer. It is completely okay to graduate when you graduate, and it is still something to be proud of.

Best Wishes,
A woman who is finally graduating

Trying to figure out what to do in life.


I never saw the crossroad

Where I could cross n' roam

Under an arch or dome. [1]

I just kept on the road

That was laid out,

Told to hold out

Till it pays out. [2]

Now I think its too late

Been walking too long,

Classes are all wrong

But masses too strong. [3]

So I follow with my head down

And chest up, succeeding cause

I'm too scared to fuck it up. [4]

But I have a need to lead,

Top-down and gears up

Leaving nothing to the dust.

But if I drop out, I'm a fuck up. [5]

Is it better to live and rust

Or drive till it busts

With trust you can find the way? [6]

[1] - Play on roam/Rome. Starts the poem by expressing the feeling of being trapped in my path in life. I felt like I never got the chance to figure out what I wanted to do.

[2] - I think a lot of it was I was following what people told me I should be doing.

[3] - I have a feeling that it is too late to change my course of life. I'm in a college for business, taking classes about business, and everyone around me wants to do business.

[4] - This is saying that even though I am not passionate about what I am doing I am still trying to succeed only because I'm scared of failing or quitting.

[5] - I want to leave and lead myself, do something where I'm not following but I don't know how to do that. This part starts a car reference, idk I've been watching Formula 1 on Netflix and its dope.

[6] - This is the question I've been asking myself, wondering if I should continue on with my path or follow my passion.
