What started out as a fun way to help mom and dad pick out their grad among the sea of graduation caps has morphed into a creative outlet for new graduates to express themselves. It's the decorated graduation cap, and it's no longer just a bow or an arrow or a "Look Ma, It's Me" sign. (Take the grad who's got 99 problems above!)
The class of 2016 has taken the idea of the decorated cap to a whole new level, complete with memes, snapchat codes and spot-on pop-culture quotes.
This year's grads may be heading into an uncertain future, but they're taking one last opportunity to have a little fun and remember their big day in a big way.
