Rhode Island joins the ranks of colleges looking to boost senior portraits turnout
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
Last year, only 12% of the senior class at the University of Rhode Island got a picture taken for the school’s yearbook. That didn’t sit well with the yearbook staff, who has set out this year to improve that number.
As related in this article in the URI student newspaper, co-editor Jenn Lashinsky said the staff has been placing banners around the Student Union, stuffing mailboxes with fliers and created a Facebook page for the yearbook, among other things.
So the URI yearbook is stepping up the efforts. What initiatives have been going on at your school this year to boost sales? Or at your college, how are you increasing portrait turnout?
