The cap, gown, and tassel for bachelor’s degree candidates and the standard cap, gown, and tassel regalia for graduate degree candidates are made from 100% recycled materials and can be recycled after graduation at designated sites throughout campus. Look for boxes marked with the Tiger Grad! The collection will run from June 6-8.

Please note: The gowns are not recyclable in any traditional recycling bin on campus or your home recycling.
