Cap & Gown Purchase
The black cap and gown, which you wear for Commencement, has a long tradition. Caps, gowns and hoods were first worn at university functions in Europe during the Middle Ages when monks and students found them necessary for warmth in the cold and drafty castles and centers of learning. Until well into the nineteenth century, it was customary for many American college students to wear gowns while in daily residence or at meals. This practice has ceased to exist and, except for some British and European schools, few colleges request students to wear gowns except at Commencement Exercises.
