Across the country, May 17 marks the annual parade of academic achievement. National Graduation Tassel Day celebrates the accomplishments of every graduate!

Auditoriums and stadiums will fill with proud family and friends excited to witness the commencement ceremonies of high schools, colleges, and universities. Tassels dangle from the mortarboards in the colors of their esteemed institutions. Gowns have been crisply pressed.

Graduates, as your day arrives, square your shoulders, eyes steady on the future, pause to consider all your challenges to realize this moment. When your name is called, diploma in hand, move your tassel from right to left.


Congratulations to everyone moving their tassel from right to left! Post a photo of your graduates with their tassels using #GraduationTasselDay.
