"Many graduates glued messages to the tops of their caps, including names of colleges they will attend."

Why does Gunn allow this boasting? This increases stress for students. It's one thing to publish on paper, it's another to run around with it tagged on the cap.

Decorating caps is a common practice in high school and college. And if there is every a time to brag, your graduation is an appropriate one.
