POTSDAM Clarkson University trustees modeled some new duds at commencement Saturday with the introduction of the universitys new academic regalia.
The new regalia is a black robe with green and gold trim, honoring Clarksons school colors.
A cap with eight sides, instead of the normal six sides, signifies Clarksons eight core values: teamwork, caring, integrity, vision, diversity, service, growth and diligence.
The robe, cap and hood are worn at formal events and symbolize the institution where one received a doctorate.
Clarkson debuted the new look Saturday after more than a year of planning.
