Ana Menke – freshman, psychology major

“I don’t know. I think it’s kind of like high school. I feel like college you shouldn’t be able to.”

 

 

Chris Heisserer – senior, English major

“Decorating hats seems like an interesting thing to do; as a part of an individual’s identity, I see the draw. I’d say go for it as long as it isn’t offensive to groups or insulting to individuals. I personally wouldn’t do it, but I’m all about choice.”

 

 

 

Scott Turton – senior, business administration major, accounting minor

“I feel like if that’s what people want to do then they should have every right to decorate their graduation caps. They’ve worked hard to graduate and if they want to do it then more power to ‘em. I don’t think decorating the caps is harming anyone. It inspires expression and creativity.”

 

 

Abeha Usman – senior, English major

“I don’t see that it’s a really big deal. I don’t see why it would be a problem.”
