Cool mortarboards

Jun 14, 2008  

Mortarboards provided a creative outlet for today's Ohio University grads. Here are some we spotted:

  • A duck pond, complete with cattails
  • A red and blue flashing star. ("My mom bought it and made me wear it so she could see me in the crowd," said the grad.)
  • A treble clef sign, sported by a proud music major
  • "I get it from my mama."
  • "Happy B-day, Dad."
  • Army men, donned by a grad headed to the military
  • "OU" in sequins
  • A plane on a runway
  • Borders of silk flowers, fresh flowers, polka dots, glow tubes
  • "I'm done!"
