Academic Regalia The mortarboard cap, which generally prevails in the United States, originated at Oxford and Cambridge. Most European universities and some Latin American universities use other types of caps, which are, of course, legitimate for wear in any American processional when the individual holds his or her degree from one of these institutions. Gowns are generally black, although some universities depart from this practice. The bachelor’s gown is simple, with long pointed sleeves. The master’s gown will have either long sleeves with narrow wrist openings or long sleeves with the arm emerging from the sleeve at about elbow length. The doctor’s gown is fullest in cut; it has velvet panels down the front and around the neck, as well as three bars of the same material on the bell-shaped sleeves. The hood indicates the level of the degree, the discipline in which it was given, and the institution that granted it. Degree level is indicated by length: the master’s hood is three-and-a-half feet long and the doctor’s hood is four feet long. The velvet trim on the exposed edge of the hood is three inches wide for the master’s degree and five inches wide for the doctor’s degree. The color of the trim indicates the field of study. A color or color pattern between the trim indicates the university granting the degree. Hood trim colors indicate the following fields: Apricot: Nursing Gray: Veterinary Medicine Blue: Philosophy Green: Medicine Brown: Fine Arts, including Architecture Lemon: Library Science Citron: Social Work Light Blue: Education Copper: Economics Lilac: Dentistry Cream: Social Science Maize: Agriculture Crimson: Journalism Olive Green: Pharmacy Dark Blue: Philosophy Orange: Engineering Drab: Commerce, Accountancy, Business Peacock Blue: Public Administration, Golden Yellow: Science including Foreign Service

Pink: Music Purple: Law Russet: Forestry Sage Green: Physical Education Salmon Pink: Public Health Scarlet: Theology Silver Gray: Oratory (Speech) White: Arts, Letters, Humanities

The Lone Star College Story Lone Star College, one of the 3 largest colleges in the nation, is nationally recognized as an innovative leader in providing educational excellence for its students, developing programs to meet community and business needs, and nurturing the cultural lives of the residents in northern Harris County, Montgomery County, and the surrounding Houston area.

Through the years, eight more school districts joined the original three; New Caney in 1981, Tomball in 1982, Conroe in 1991, Willis and Splendora in 1996, Klein in 1998, and CypressFairbanks and Magnolia in 2000. In 2008 the college became Lone Star College, which is now known as one of the premier community colleges in the country. Lone Star College consists of six comprehensive colleges – LSC-CyFair, LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Montgomery, LSC-North Harris, LSC-Tomball and LSC-University Park – and two university centers, the LSCUniversity Center at The Woodlands and the LSC-University Center at University Park.

Students of all ages rely on Lone Star College for associate degrees, certifications for work in high-demand industries, credits that enable them to transfer anywhere and life-long learning opportunities. LSC offers flexible class schedules, small classes, innovative teaching techniques, and academic advising and skills testing -- all in state-of-the-art facilities.

Throughout its history, LSC has continued to provide its students with a quality, affordable education that they can obtain close to home and at a fraction of the cost of most four-year universities. LSC offers programs in disciplines that include high-demand growth industries like healthcare, computer technology, industrial/ commercial construction, process and lab technology, truck driving and logistics, energy and manufacturing, and more.

None of this would be possible without the outstanding LSC faculty and staff members who are among the best and brightest in the country. Many have been honored with local, state and national awards for excellence in teaching and outstanding contributions to education. LSC serves more than 85,000 credit students each semester, with a total enrollment of more than 95,000, and is one of the fastest-growing community colleges in the nation.

As Lone Star College congratulates the Class of 2017, the college remains steadfast in its mission to provide quality and affordable educational opportunities to help its students reach their educational goals and complete their credentials.

Lone Star College, formally known as the North Harris Montgomery Community College District, got its start in 1972 when residents in the Aldine, Humble and Spring Independent School Districts elected to create a junior college district, which became known as North Harris County College. The doors opened in the fall of 1973 with a 16-member staff and 613 students. The first classes were held at Aldine High School.
