Another college yearbook comeback at the University of Maine

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Last week in the Blog, we passed along the story of the yearbook at Florida A&M University, which was being brought back by an ambitious group of students after a six-year hiatus.

This week there’s a similar story from the University of Maine, where the reformed yearbook staff has grown to 10 students and the yearbook The Prism is making a comeback for the first time in six years.

According to the recent write-up in the school’s newspaper about the renewed yearbook effort, the new staff has been actively getting the word out, including an email to all students last month to let them know, “We’re trying to make this yearbook all about you.”
