Frequently Asked Questions
When will my yearbook arrive?
The 2013 ICON Yearbook is scheduled to ship in late September 2013, it should arrive in late October to the address you provided to us upon checkout.
Why should I buy a yearbook?
Students tell us that they don't want to buy a yearbook because they are not going to be in it. You can be. Submit your pictures and we will use them in the book. Problem solved. Students also tell us that they don't feel that it's worth it. While we do realize that you may not think you'll miss college now, trust us, you will. A yearbook is one of the only things you can take with you after college.
Do I need to be a graphic design major or a journalism major to work for the yearbook?
Absolutely not. The ICON Yearbook welcomes students of all majors to work for us. Check out the current open positions listed on our staff application form
I am looking for an older yearbook. Which years are available?
Post-production yearbooks are in short supply, however, you may contact us
to inquire about the availability of the yearbook you are looking for.
I am graduating in the fall, which book should I be in?
We suggest putting your picture in the book of the class you identify the most with. Senior Portraits are held one week during the fall semester, however, any portrait taken during that session will be in that year's book. For example, if you attend portraits in the Fall of 2013, your portrait will be in the 2014 yearbook. Please plan ahead.
What should I wear for my Senior Portrait?
What would your mother want you to wear? While you are free to wear whatever you want, you should wear something appropriate and formal. It will be in the yearbook forever.
