What do/did you do with your graduation gown?

I still have mine and was curious to see what others did with theirs because all it is doing is hanging in my closet and I don't know what to do with it or what I can do with it. Do I just keep it? Throw it out? Sell it? Or what? Were is yours and what did you do with it?

Sorry not sure where to put this question

  • I never owned it to begin with. Ours were just rented. We had to return it to a table inside the school (our graduation was out on the football field). If you didn't return it, you didn't get your diploma. The one they handed us on stage was just for show. I never knew people actually bought the things till years later. That wasn't an option at our school so I had no idea.

  • You can do whatever you want with it. Make it a costume for your kids. Tear it up to use in your garden, etc. I had to return both my high school and college gowns.
