Mexican Graduation Caps: 29 Latina Inspired Designs!
Show pride in your culture with these creative Mexican grad cap ideas!
¡Hola! It’s that time of year again –
Graduation is coming up, and it’s coming up quick. With the impending ceremonies comes the old tradition of decorating your grad cap.
There are SO MANY decoration ideas out there! In this post about Mexican graduation caps, I wanted to showcase some ideas that are making waves – awesome green, whit, and red waves.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, the rate of Hispanic high school graduates going to college grew from 22% to 37% in the period from 2000 to 2015. That’s amazing!
Hispanic undergraduate enrollment has more than doubled, now there are 3 million students. That’s a number that keeps growing, and we’re HERE FOR IT. Colleges are beginning to become more diversified and inclusive, a trend I hope that will continue to expand and magnify.
After all, isn’t that what the U.S should be all about? (Melting pot anyone? Yes, please.)
