The true MFA hood is brown velvet, with your school colors on the inside. (OSU= scarlet and grey). people were mixed with what gown i should get but the people at the bookstore (and about 5 other graduation companies) told me to get the black gown, with black chevrons that indicate the terminal degree. the dk blue lining of the hood or blur chevrons would indicate a doctorate, and since I don't have one, they thought black gown with black chevrons would be appropriate for the MFA.
My MFA school colors: black and yellow. Yuck!
What are your MFA school colors?
