If you are ready to graduate from high school or a university, you may need graduation clothing.  Most importantly, you will need a cap & gown for graduation.  Before buying a set, check with your school to see if they order them for you.   If you are ready to graduate, you may be tired of reading.  However, it may be helpful to read up on issues relevant to graduation.

In many British colleges and universities, sets of two or more colours have traditionally been used as part of the distinctive visual identity of the institution. These colours are used in clothing and symbols of all kinds, from ties to trophies, but notably in the long woollen winter scarves that students often wear to show their pride in their Institution. Initially sported by students from the Constituent Colleges of the University of London, they have become synonymous with Oxbridge, and more traditional secondary schools.

Oxbridge

Within the Universites of Oxford and Cambridge, in addition to collegiate scarves, there are also several non-collegiate scarves which have a well established meaning. For example, those representing the University in sport may be entitled to wear a particular scarf, depending on their level of achievement, or a university department or club may have its own scarf.
