Commemorative Items

Custom Stoles (“Sashes”)

While the majority of undergraduates rent (and do not purchase) their regalia, more and more are purchasing a stole (or sash) to wear on Commencement day. Stoles are available from the University Bookstore, and can be ordered with the USC logo or embroidered university seal, and can be customized with fraternity/sorority crests, graduation year, or other commemorative marks.

Individual photos of each graduate crossing the stage in their cap and gown are taken at Academic School Ceremonies by GradImages. Proofs are e-mailed to students within 24 hours of the ceremony and may be ordered online at the GradImages website.
