Caps and gowns available for seniors to purchase

Brian Higgins
Seniors are approaching the end of their high school journey, and with that, comes key clothing items: caps and gowns. Both are available for purchase, with a priority deadline on Friday.

Seniors are reaching the end of their high school journey with an important milestone: caps and gowns. The class of 2024 is now able to purchase their caps and gowns at and select from three different packages that offer different deals. In order to get the lowest prices available, orders must be placed by Friday. 

“There’s tons of stuff on the website,” campus receptionist Kelly Kasperlain said. “You can literally just get [a] cap, gown, [and] tassel. Or you could get an invitation letter, a class ring – I mean there’s all kinds of stuff on there. For the class ring, you get to pick a style. You can put band, or swimming, or honors, to represent your electives: you can customize it completely.” 

Buying a cap and gown is fun for senior Tayyaba Mazhar, as it means she’s approaching graduation.

“Buying a cap and gown feels like I’m closer to graduation which I’m so excited about,” Mazhar said. “It’s a little bittersweet knowing I won’t be going to Liberty anymore but I’m excited to move on. I’m not planning on buying extra accessories with my cap and gown [though]. I just don’t like many of the things and don’t want to pay for anything extra,” 

Senior Atharva Thombare believes that despite the fact that graduation is months away, this is the right time for students to make their purchases. 

“People shouldn’t rush at the very end and forget to buy their cap and gown and then just end up not having one,” Thombare said. “If I bought mine later I would probably have forgotten because I have a lot of work in my classes and I think it’s just better to buy it now instead of having to have that on your mind later.”
