6 Fun Facts about Graduation

A PRIME Insurance End of School Special!


It’s that very special time of the year again! Graduation marks an occasion when students move forward from one stage in life to the next! Fraught, perhaps, with a touch of anxiety for what the future holds, it also is cause for pomp and celebration!

Amid all the wishes of congratulations, here are some extraordinary facts you might not know about the grand juncture:

  • The timeless tradition related to tossing the graduation hat at the commencement of the ceremony represents the journey graduates now must take to navigate through life.

  • The graduation cap, also known as the ‘mortarboard’, is not above risk exposure. Following the 2008 Anglia Ruskin University of England ceremony, a tossed cap injured a student in the head.

  • The official music that graduates march down to is referred to as ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ or alternatively as ‘Pomp and Circumstance’ that was composed back in 1901 by Sir Edward Elgar.

 

 

  • Graduation diplomas are often called ‘sheepskins’. The reason behind this is because sheepskin was in fact the material used to make the parchment they were written on when graduation first came into to being.

  • The traditional long gowns graduates even today wear originate from the days when European universities had no heat and scholars needed warmth to be comfortable. Though, the typical day in June is not cold in any stretch of the imagination, tradition remained.

  • The popularity of taking photo ‘selfies’, especially during such an auspicious occasion, has its limits in both the University of S FL and Bryant U where the rule dictates the act unfitting while on stage.
