In order to stand out amongst the sea of caps and gowns gathered on the floor of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during the Unified Commencement Ceremony, Tulane students get creative by making memorable mortarboards. Whether you paint your cap with words of wisdom, adorn it with Mardi Gras beads, dust it with glitter or even top it with glimmering lights, the intricate designs grant friends and family members a fighting chance of spotting you in the massive crowd.

If you’re a 2018 graduate with a marvelous mortarboard, we want to see your unique design!

Please email mcross3@tulane.edu with a photo of your completed mortarboard, a brief description of your art, your name and major no later than 5 p.m. Monday, May 14. Your submission may be featured in New Wave.

For inspiration, see these past submissions previously displayed in New Wave.

The commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 19, will be streamed live online. Follow Commencement 2018 on social media at #tulane18.
