Rowan University's Yearbook, The Image
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get my picture in the yearbook?
During the spring or fall semester before your graduation year, Herff Jones, the yearbook photographer, comes to campus to photograph all seniors. For specific dates, please visit here.
If I'm graduating during the Fall semester, in which yearbook will I appear?
The yearbook is inclusive of each calendar year. Students graduating in Spring, Summer and Fall of 2013 will appear in the 2013 yearbook.
Do I have to sign up to have my picture taken?
Yes. If you are a spring or fall graduate, you must make an appointment to be photographed in the previous spring or fall. Any portraits taken after that time will not be included in that year's yearbook due to deadlines.
How do I sign up?
You can call the Herff Jones portrait line at 1-800-OUR-YEAR™ (687-9327) during normal business hours or log onto Herff Jones’ 24-hour scheduling site, http://WWW.OURYEAR.COM, and enter school code 187.
How will I know when the portraits are being taken?
Herff Jones sends a mailing to all seniors. Also, an email blast is sent to all seniors, the Student Center staff hangs posters and ads are placed in The Whit.
Can I give you a photo that was taken by another photographer?
The Image is unable to include any senior portrait that has not been processed by Herff Jones Photography. The entire senior portrait system is computerized and the photos are sent electronically from the photographer to the printer. There is no way to handle an individual photo taken by someone else.
Is there a charge to have my portrait taken?
There is no charge for the sitting and you do not have to purchase portraits to be included in the yearbook. The photographer will send you your photos, along with an order sheet, if you wish to purchase them. Whether or not you choose to purchase any photos, you still should choose the pose you would like to appear in the yearbook.
Who decides what pose goes in the yearbook?
If you did not select a yearbook pose from the proofs mailed to your home, the photographer will choose a standard pose and send it to The Image. We do not choose the pictures.
What happens to the information I give you on the day of my portrait?
The information sheets filled out on the day of your appointment will not necessarily be used. The number of students photographed determines how much space is available to include your activities, major, etc. You should still fill out the form so your information is available if needed.
How do I get a yearbook?
The yearbooks are free to all seniors with a Rowan ID. They are distributed first come, first served at the Student Center Information Desk during Senior Week. You will receive an email when they arrive.
