Graduation. That time of year when students are rewarded for years of hard work with a degree or diploma that will hopefully set them forth on a path of future success — or at least a few weeks off for summer vacation.

In an attempt to stand out one last time and declare their independence, these creative students put their own individual spin on the traditional graduation cap.

After all, if you’re going to go out, go out with style and flair.

I'm just here for the party.
