Earlier this week we talked about the remarkable academic achievements of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, including her membership of Phi Kappa Phi. So, what does it take to be a member of an honor society with a Supreme Court Justice alum? We’re going to find out!
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.
It’s finally your shining moment: Graduation day! All of your years of hard work have led to this. You’ve dreamt about it for years -- the moment they call out your name and you walk across the stage to receive your diploma amid a crowd of cheers. You’ve picked an outfit for photos and start to get ready for commencement -- you look great! But, one thing stands out -- the square hat with a tassel hanging from it, and you wonder, “who came up with THIS idea?!”
Founded in 1904 by five cadet officers at The University of Wisconsin, The National Society of Scabbard and Blade is an organization dedicated to the United States military officers through a variety of programs. Their mission is “...dedicated to developing aspiring and current military officers that emulate the Five Star qualities while fostering strong joint-service relationships.” Their organization’s vision is that their members will "redefine the standard of excellence for all military members."
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!
The road to the creation and accreditation of Gamma Theta Upsilon, The International Geographical Honor Society was not easy. It was originally formed as an honorary fraternity prior to WWI by a student at the University of Chicago. The initial attempt to have it recognized as a more permanent organization failed before being revived again in 1924 once the founder, Dr. Robert G. Buzzard, went to graduate school at Clark University.
Founded in 1941 by a new director of the Police Science Academic Program at Washington State University, Alpha Phi Sigma aims to “promote excellence in scholarship and performance” in criminal justice studies. It is the only accredited national honor society for criminal justice and serves areas such as police, courts, corrections, forensics, nonprofits, and higher education.
The big day is finally here -- your graduation! You’ve worked hard and anxiously awaited this day for years. You’ve always pictured a big celebration with family and friends to mark the occasion, but one uninvited party guest is trying to mess up all of the fun: COVID-19. Your graduation ceremony may already be scaled down, whether it’s in person or virtual, and your post-commencement party may also look a little different than planned, but there’s great news: There’s still ways you can celebrate and feel special during the COVID-era.
