Pitt Custom Regalia
Recycling Your Pitt Regalia
Bachelor’s and master’s regalia from the University Store are made from recycled PET and can be recycled after graduation through a special regalia recycling program at Pitt.
The University of Pittsburgh’s regalia is provided by Oak Hall, which manufactures caps and gowns made of 100% post-consumer recycled PET (the most common plastic material used in products like plastic bottles, food containers, and clothing fiber). Using recycled PET reduces manufacturing emissions by 55% and uses 50% fewer petroleum products that traditional polyester.
If you decide you don’t want to keep your cap and gown, recycle your regalia after graduation at any of the University Stores, April 30 through May 31– just look for the regalia recycling collection bins. Caps and gowns collected through the program are recycled into rugs and animal bedding.
Pitt Class Rings and Diploma Frames
The official University of Pittsburgh class ring symbolically commemorates the unique lifelong connection alumni have to Pitt. Students who purchase a class ring are making an investment that will last a lifetime.
