Personal/Dork Whine: Mortar Boards = Academic Fashion Death
Aaauuggghhh!!! Mortar boards?!! Every picture I saw of Marquette Ph.D. robes had tams, not mortar boards! I never would have come here if I'd known I had to graduate in a propeller-beanie and not a cool tam! I guess all the cool Marquette people have tams made instead when they buy their robes.
