The body of the hood is constructed of black and red polyester crepe. The hood is trimmed with luminous satin in the color that signifies the department. Deep blue velvet, which denotes the Ph.D., while subtle, provides an elegant look and soft feel.
In addition to the blue hood trim that signifies the achievement of a Ph.D. (Philosophy Doctorate), Stanford hoods have another set of trims based on the field of study. The table below shows the trim colors and corresponding degree fields.
|Trim Color||Field of Study|
|White||Humanities, Arts, Sociology|
|Golden Yellow||Science, Mathematics|
|Dark blue||Philosophy, Political Science|

Overall, it is good. The only suggestion is that I wonder if the shipping box could be smaller. Also, I would appreciate an option to ship via UPS as I could not find a drop-off site for USPS (If there is, I will appreciate some instructions). Because the graduation date is also the deadline to move-out campus dorm and I will be in a flight back to work on Monday morning.
