"Turning of the Tassel" -- The gesture of moving the tassel from one side of the cap to the other symbolizes the individual’s movement from candidate to graduate. Prior to the ceremony the tassel is worn on the right. During the ceremony it is moved to the left side after students receive their diploma. This custom is practiced in educational institutions nationwide.
The Senior Class is traditionally led in the "Turning of the Tassel" by the Senior Class President and/or the Associated Student Body President.
