Showcasing School Spirit on Graduation Day

Melissa W.

High school and college students alike often feel a strong sense of pride and dedication to their schools, especially as they begin to round out their educational careers and start the next chapter of their lives. They proudly wear their school spirit in the form of t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, and similar in the building and around campus during the academic year -- but what about on graduation day?


Our popular honor cords double as spirit cords and offer a way for students to visually celebrate their school spirit while maintaining tradition during the graduation ceremony. Spirit cords come in single, double, and triple colors intertwined with matching tassels and are designed to be worn with a traditional cap & gown. We offer over 80 color combinations to ensure your school colors are properly represented.

What are your school colors? What other fun ways do your students celebrate school pride during the year and on graduation day? Let us know in the comments!
