Topping it off

 

From the inspirational to the downright zany, decorated graduation
caps are a celebratory staple at UC's commencement ceremonies.  

 

Bearcats, it’s your time to shine. 

As the big diploma day arrives, University of Cincinnati graduates break out the glue guns and glitter to put their own spin on the traditional flat-topped mortarboard – and make it easier for friends and family to know where to point their cameras among a sea of black and red robes.

Whether it be a good pun, inspirational quote, school pride or just a shout-out to mom and dad, UC graduates know how to stand out in a crowd. 

Here’s a look at some of the artistic flair displayed by graduates during UC’s spring Commencement ceremonies.
