There’s still a few colleges and universities waiting on their fall graduation ceremonies to occur that were reworked from the spring, but most have moved on to planning for the new class of upcoming grads … and we’re so excited!
Now that we’ve discussed just how students get their extra hardware to don on graduation day, we’re going to break down the difference between two commonly used stoles, both of which we carry at Senior Class Graduation Products: Honor Stoles and Scholar Stoles.
In a sea of graduates donned in caps and gowns, only a few truly stand out. You notice the brightly-colored cords, draping stoles, and distinctive medallions, but what do they mean? What did the graduate do to earn those? We’re taking a look at a few of the more widely-known honors and the meaning behind them.
With virtual graduations on the rise amidst the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, schools are still looking for ways to keep the commencements special and also as normal as possible for their seniors. We’ve noticed a rise in orders for our Class Officer stoles recently, particularly our Class President stoles, and we think we know why: on top of their importance, they look great and stand out on computer screens!
There’s no prom, spring break, senior skip day, or yearbook signing … and there’s certainly no traditional in-person graduations this May and June. Those of us who had the true senior experience can remember the excitement leading up to graduation -- it’s unmatched, and because of that, we really feel badly for The Class of 2020. While our team is still actively fulfilling orders for graduation ceremonies, whether virtual or in the future, we’ve seen many others stepping up to provide The Class of 2020 with some unique ways to celebrate their accomplishments this spring.
Graduation season is quickly approaching, but social distancing is still in place, which leaves many seniors with the stress of not knowing if they’ll be celebrated this year. Each school and institution has started to come up with their own plans and we’re so happy to say that, yes, graduations will go on -- even if they look a little different this year!
