Graduation cap decoration ideas

yawning graduate cap hat

Over the past month the most popular search term that landed people here was “graduation cap decoration ideas” because of this post I made of SOU’s 2011 Commencement. So, while a graduation ceremony can be boring at times (see above picture), I entertained myself this year by taking photos of decorated graduation caps. Enjoy.

When Emile Amarotico was introduced as the representative of SOU’s Alumni Association welcoming new grads as freshly minted alumni, it was mentioned that when he and his wife walked at commencement a couple decades before, they did so with their baby girl. On this day, their daughter was graduating from SOU so it was an extra special day for the family.

Math professors...

This was the first year that professors formed a gauntlet since commencement moved from Lithia Park in 2003. I thought we should have done the tunnel like at kids' soccer games, but Dennis opted for low fives instead.

I think this is the first year that students (half of them anyway) marched in in front of the grand stands.

I couldn't see the stage so I got to watch the new grads watch the speaker.

Bill Rauch, of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, was the main speaker at 2011 Commencement. He must have said something funny at this point.

This graduate grabbed a photo of the crowd just before her name was read.

After an hour or so of names being read, I amused myself with photos of graduation cap decoration ideas.

I finally made it into a photo. I think Rene just wanted to try out my camera.

At long last, SOU's School of Business students approach the stage.

photoshop mistake

Funny story... Actually, look at this photo long and hard to see if you can see what is "funny" about it first.

Did you see it?

Someone's camera got in the way of the guy's hands on the far right. When I tried to remove the camera from the photo in Photoshop, Photoshop was "smart" enough to realize that hands were missing so it substituted the other guy's hands in the far right guy's "hand place" too. I would have just undone it and left it with the camera blocking the lower right portion of the photo, but I thought this looked too funny to not keep.

I have about 60 decent photos from Southern Oregon University’s graduation ceremony this morning. I’ll post them in two installments. This first set of pictures will consist of 10, and the next one will have 50. If you were there, there is a chance you are in at least one of these images.

I still haven’t figured out how to use WordPress’s gallery feature very well. I was hoping that when you clicked on one of the above images you’d get a large image and be able to navigate to the next picture. You can’t, unfortunately. You can get a large image if you click the picture and then click it again on the next page though.

After attending eight straight SOU graduations, I’m going to miss next year’s commencement since I will be out of the country. I think already missing next year caused me to take more pictures than normal this year. 😉

Pictures from Southern Oregon University’s 2008 graduation ceremony can be seen here.
