Sustainable Regalia

New for the 2021–22 academic year, App State’s official regalia is made in the USA, with fabric produced from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.

With an average of 25 plastic bottles used to produce each cap and gown, App State’s Spring 2022 Commencement ceremonies diverted nearly 100,000 plastic bottles from the landfill.

Official App State regalia is available through the University Bookstore. Learn more
