Rihanna, Harry Styles, ‘Twin Peaks,’ Hilary Duff: Graduates mine pop culture for clever cap …

It's that time of the year again — when new graduates collect their diplomas and cards full of cash, and wave goodbye to a stage of their lives. Although the graduation ceremony is a time-honored tradition for decades, this generation's group of grads have a new dress requirement: namely, elaborately personalized mortarboards.

Now, for the old-timers out there — sure, we know back in the day some grads created clever messages out of masking tape on top of their caps. However, these are a generation or two beyond, the more elaborate, the better; and the more clever the pop-culture reference, the best.

This year's crop of caps paid tribute to such musical stars as Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Cardi B:

But not just the ladies were represented. Former One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles and Chance the Rapper made appearances as well!

@chancetherapper aside from your awesome music, you have been an inspiration and role model to me with what you do to help the youth and your people. Here is the final product of my graduation cap for my graduation ceremony! Thank you

And, hey, there were a few choice song lyrics that allegedly made it out onto the graduation field, too — including at least one that made the whole family happy.

My parents don't know I quoted Drake on my graduation cap bc it said “God's plan” so they just think I'm a good Christian lolll

Meanwhile, some other students decided to pay homage to the various TV series that helped them unwind during stressful finals weeks (or, perhaps, kept them from studying as much as they should!):

Still others decided to dedicate their caps to actors who have made a difference in their lives (and, in the case of Mindy Kaling at least, some actors took notice back).

Yes, we've certainly come a long way from putting our boyfriends'/girlfriends' initials on the board with a few strips of tape.

Here's to all the graduates out there: Congratulations to the class of 2018!
