N.C. State offering free yearbook with senior portrait

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The Agromeck, the award-winning yearbook at North Carolina State University, has started a new campaign to give away a free yearbook to every senior at the school who gets a senior portrait taken.

The project is a pilot program being tested this year and is being funded by summer school student fees.

The initiative is an attempt to get more students to have their portraits taken, and as editor Bryant Robbins told the school paper, make the Agromeck “a more complete historic document.”

For the other college programs out there, would this type of project be feasible at your school?
