Help the yearbook staff TELL YOUR STORY!

Yearbook + Launches for the 2020-2021 Obiter Yearbook!

The yearbook staff along with Jostens are excited to announce a new way to make this year's yearbook more memorable for each of you! This site will allow students, faculty and staff alike to upload images right from their smart device. Students will have 2 aspects of their story to contribute to, one is their “My Year” and the other is their “School Life”. "MY Year" - All senior students who have their senior portrait taken for the yearbook, will be able to add 10 personal, storytelling images of themselves for additional content (specifically about their personal journey) to be viewed in the 2020-2021 Obiter yearbook. In addition, students, along with faculty and staff are able to contribute images to the “School Life” part of the story. These images will first be reviewed, then possibly used throughout the book... but even if they aren't chosen to be displayed in the print book they can be selected to be used as additional content to supplement the book.

It’s free and super easy... First - scan the QR code (at right) to get started, Second - enter a BU affiliated email address (this email will be used for a one-time verification) and Third - confirm the email address. Once confirmed, you will be able to upload photos to TELL YOUR STORY! It's that easy!

"Once Upon A Time . . . Tell Us Your Story!

Attention seniors and the rest of our student body! Take a few minutes to review the list below, which includes brief surveys/forms to provide our staff with your individual stories and pictures. These forms are short and at most, they should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Our hopes are that each of you will take a few minutes to complete at least one or two of the forms, that interest you most... but feel free to complete as many as you wish!

Help us make the 2020-2021 yearbook extra special by uploading your personal photos and stories!

ReplayIt - Private Photo Submission

You can help us make the yearbook all it can be...our photographers can't be everywhere, so help us get as many photos as possible!

Submit your pictures to us via: https://images.jostens.com/415463937. Please name your photos in the the format as follows: Event_Date_Detail_PhotographerName (Example: Football_09_24_20_Sideline_YearbookAdviser).

Do you have a story to go with the pictures that you have uploaded? We'd love to hear it! We will just need you to email your story to the Yearbook Adviser at obiteradv@bloomu.edu. Just make sure that the subject of your email is the same name as your photo submission (Example: Email Subject = Football_09_24_20_Sideline_YearbookAdviser), so we can match them up.

The yearbook staff will then review all photos and determine final yearbook content...we cannot guarantee that all submissions will be used. We look forward to seeing campus through your eyes!

  • 1. Call 1-800-OUR-YEAR with school code 166 and see if they have any studios close to where you are currently are residing. If so, ask if they would be willing to schedule you a session at the off-campus studio to have your senior portrait taken. You will need to schedule a session date prior to March 26, 2021, in order to ensure that we will receive your image in time for use in the 2020-2021 Obiter Yearbook. AGAIN, just be sure to use school code 166, so that your images get forward to us here.
  • 2. Have your senior portrait taken by an external photographer and submit to the yearbook staff via THIS FORM, no later than May 7, 2021.

* Official graduation means the actual semester that a student receives a diploma, it does not necessarily correspond to when the student "walks". Yearbook eligibility is based on official graduation. Portraits should be taken during the session that corresponds to the semester that the student will officially graduate and receive their diploma. If you have further questions, please contact: obiteradv@bloomu.edu or call 570-389-4465.
