About our Single Color Graduation Cord:

This graduation cord will make you the out-standing one on the graduation day. This cord will also make a great souvenir to keep with after the graduation since this applies for many degrees. We offer you with the most affordable price and you will save more money with more orders.

The Many Uses of Golden Honor Cords

The use of golden honor cords is incredibly popular in academia. They are a symbol of achievement and can be worn in a number of different ways to show associations, accomplishments, and specializations. Much like the graduation cap, they have a long history and are layered with deeply significant symbolic meanings based on how they are worn, if they are mixed with other colors, and when they are actually put on.

Basic Golden Honor Cords

There are a number of different meanings for basic golden honor cords. While they can be very specific in their application, they also have more general meanings as well.

Technically, an unadorned golden cord can be indicative of belonging specifically to the Alpha Mu Gamma honor society, a group focused primarily on foreign language learning and founded in 1931 in Los Angeles. While this is technically true, the fact of the matter is that an unadorned gold cord is so simple and related to so many more widespread understandings of the meaning of “gold” as a color that this is rarely the assumption when students are wearing one at graduation.

Instead, the golden cord is more often used to indicate that the student is graduating with honors of some sort. This is most often related to high GPA or generally outstanding academic achievement. Usually when one is ordered, it will come in pairs or triplets of strands that have been tied together in the middle with a single knot. The number of strands that are on display can indicate the level of achievement a student has had while in school. One strand is graduating Cum Laude (“With Honor”), two strands indicates Magna Cum Laude (“With Great Honor”), and three strands for Summa Cum Laude (“With Highest Honor”).

Honor cords shouldn’t be confused with graduation stoles, which can have a much wider color palate and generally are indicative of different awards and associations.

Defining Honors at Various Schools

Of course, utilizing the honor cord to signify academic achievement is only one of many uses for it. As alluded to above, the honor cord can be in many colors, often a combination of several, and each can indicate a particular honor society to which one belongs. The color code is established by the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), which keeps a particular registry of which societies are represented by which color or combination of colors.

The Delta Mu Theta honor society, for example, is assigned the colors purple and gold. A person wearing a cord with these two colors twined can be assumed to belong to that particular society. Gold on its own, as mentioned, is assigned to the Alpha Mu Gamma honor society, though they are not permitted to use multiple strands as that is too easily confused with those who are graduating with higher academic honors.

The honor cord is also generally matched by the tassel on an academic cap. The tassel should reflect the honor society colors or be pure gold for those graduating with honors. In the case of somebody both graduating with honors and as part of an honor society, they are allowed to choose the tassel color in most cases, though many end up with the gold one to highlight their grades and the work they did to achieve that level of recognition.

High schools have slightly different approaches to how they award and use honor cords. Since they are not bound by the rules of the Inter-Collegiate Code, they have a lot more leniency in how they honor their students, though some traditions have become standard among a number of schools across the United States.

For example, cord color is often used by schools to indicate achievement in a particular subject, with gold being reserved for more generally high grades. Colored cords can also indicate membership in various school activities like band or newspaper. Many honor societies have expanded their reach from the university system into the high schools, and their cord colors may be available to students depending on the administration of that particular school.

The Significance of the Economy Bachelor Gown/Cap/Tassel Package

As the end of the semester approaches in a number of universities around the world, students will wear a cap and gown, smiling for pictures with their parents, and walking across stages in proud honor of their academic achievements as a student. Everything from the graduation cap to the graduation stole holds great meaning beyond what many of the graduates may not even be aware of. However, those who are aware of these significances are able to tell a lot about a person’s academic career just by looking at their outfit.

Why Wear Gowns?

These loose fitting garments carry a tradition that goes back to the beginning of the university system. Before there were specific schools dedicated to higher learning, most education beyond basic instruction for most trades was provided by the Catholic Church. Ecclesiastical training was considered a viable option by many who could afford the opportunity. Back then, this opportunity was far more than what they could have obtained on their own.

Despite the loose fit of these original garments, they were fare more restrictive than the free moving Economy Bachelor Gown you will find at GraduationMall. This is due to the pleated body of our gowns which create a much slimmer line by hiding most of the fabric. It also lets the body move comfortably and as needed to improve the overall fit, without sacrificing comfort.

The reasons why our gowns are so much more comfortable than the older-style academic dress and many of our competitors’ is contributed to three important factors First, our Economy Bachelor Gown is made from 100% polyester that is light weight and easy to wear for long periods of time over other clothing. Many of the earlier designed scholarly attire were built for warmth. Often ceremonies were held within large, unheated stone buildings like cathedrals. Fortunately, we live in a world with air conditioning, so the need for a warm gown is not nearly as pressing as it would have been back in the middle ages. Many competitors may still provide extra fabric inside their robes, making for a weighted and less comfortable gown.

Secondly, our regalia has been made from top quality materials that are designed to be easy to wear and remove as needed. Zippers in most designs make it easy to adjust the gown for comfort or to change between pictures. The seams are carefully stitched to reduce the chance of unraveling. The fabric contributes to a simplified appearance that resists stains and will be easier to keep in good order for years to come.

Finally, we are focused on designing our gowns to fit, which means high quality cuts and affectations that will not only look amazing but bring out the best in you while you have it on. Instead of draping your frame without any sort of contour, as so many other gowns do, our options fit over the shoulders and sit in place while draping along the body to give you clean lines and a fashionable look. Pictures from that day will last for years, so you should look your best.

Considering all of these changes, the Economy Bachelor Gown from GraduationMall still bears a lot of similarities to the designs of the past. It is worn long, down to the ankles, and has the same full length sleeves early scholars wore. Again, these are artifacts of the need for warmth but now contribute to a more streamlined look. The sleeves on a bachelor gown are always pointed, though sometimes subtly, to differentiate it from a master’s gown, which had oblong sleeves, squared at the back. The neck and collar are made of a single piece of fabric so that it can drape easily over your head and shoulders, originally a function of having to mass produce these centuries before mass production was common but now used to make it fit you even better.

The Traditional Graduation Hat and Stole

Additional accessories add to the importance today’s cap and gown. The graduation stole and hat worn by graduating students also have their roots in the European church schools. Originally derived from the ecclesiastic stoles that priests wore during certain times of the year, they were used to indicate which part of the church calendar members were on. The stole was eventually used to indicate which type of study a particular student was pursuing. For many people today, the tassel has come to replace the stole, which is why the Economy Bachelor Tassel has a high quality gold plated clasp to draw attention to it as well as 12 color options to represent your group or society of choice.

The Graduation Cap

The graduation hat is probably the most iconic of graduation regalia. While the design has gone through a number of different appearances, the common cap that we are familiar with today goes back to 1559 when it was made a legal requirement for teachers to wear the four cornered mortarboard in England.

The GraduationMall cap is made of matte materials so, like the gown, it will be stain resistant and show up well in pictures. The glued seams ensure that the fabric remains tight over the hard board top that will last for quite a while. Elastic bands around the head mean that they will comfortably fit most people. The design is part of our commitment to producing high-quality outfits that will not only look incredible on the day of the event but maintain their appearance for years to come.

When students walk across that stage at graduation, they take part in an academic tradition that has grown and changed over the years, but has always signified great achievement in learning. Though many of the items are symbolic today, they still hold great value as a way to recognize the many who came before. Each of them wore garments very much like the Economy Bachelor Gown/Cap/Tassel Package. Browse our wide selection of high-quality cap and gowns, graduations stoles and other accessories today!

    It has been an age-old tradition of graduates to wear graduation caps and gowns. In a way, the cap and gown symbolizes how special the day is in that only those who have toiled and persevered are given the right to wear them.

    As graduates walk down the aisle to their respective seats, the cap and gown adds to the feeling of pride that finally one chapter of their life has been successfully completed and that they can now advance to the next stage-thus, the term commencement, which means beginning rather than the end are what many people attribute the graduation ceremony to. However, do you know how the wearing of the symbolic cap and gown started? The gown, which is technically called an academic dress, was first worn for tertiary education and later on, secondary education. The tradition of wearing an academic dress to graduation started rather as a necessity rather than as official wear to the rite of passage. The custom started during the 12th century when early universities were still beginning to be formed in Europe. These universities were tasked to validate degrees as well as list the names of scholars who were officially enrolled, and they were to record the progress of students to the next degree. At that time, no sufficient heating system was provided in such universities, and as such, students were forced to improvise to keep warm. The scholars, who were usually aspiring clerics or already clerics, started the practice of wearing a long robe with a hood for heat. Later that century, gowns were made the official dress of academics to prevent excessive apparel. On the other hand, the square academic cap also called a mortarboard because of its resemblance in shape to the device utilized by masons to hold mortar-was reputed to have originated from a biretta worn by scholarly clergies, which was used to signify their superiority and intelligence. These hats became popular in the 14th and 15th centuries and were only worn by artists, humanists, students, and all those learned. They usually came in the color red signifying blood and life, hence, power more than life and death.

   Regardless if you live in America or in another country, graduation caps and gowns, along with tassels, hoods, stoles and diploma covers are common apparel whenever men and women graduate from school. From a child graduating from preschool or kindergarten, all the way up to doctoral graduates, you’ll find various colors, styles, and materials for your educational affiliation.

   By Amberh Ardrich, trend analyst for worldwide academic apparel reveals a company that delivers everything for the graduate, including gifts and accessories.
