Yearbook Photo Tips
Adapted from: http://www.wikihow.com/Look-Great-in-a-Yearbook
- Keep it fresh.
Don’t forget that your hygiene is just as important as having an amazing smile in your photo. You should take a shower, brush your teeth, and wash your face before you show those pearly whites.
- If you normally shower in the evenings, try to make time for a morning shower on the day of your photo. This will make your skin look even better.
- If you’re not wearing makeup, wash your face before you take your photo.
- Wash your hair so it’s shiny instead of limp or greasy.
- Have your best face and hair.
Your face and hair should be in great shape when you take your yearbook photo. You don’t have to overdo it, but there are a few things you can do to make sure you look your best on the day of the photo.
- Keep your hair out of your eyes. Though you may think it’s “cool” to hide half your face under a layer of bangs or long hair, you won’t appreciate it twenty years from now.
- Style your hair like you normally style it. Don’t try anything crazy or fancy on the day of the photo. The goal is to look like yourself.
- Men: Make sure your eyebrows are in place, and if you are sporting facial hair, make sure it isn’t out of control (unless you’re going for that John the Baptist look).
- Women: If you normally wear makeup, don’t change it up. There’s no need for dramatic eye-makeup or lipstick changes on the day of the photo.
- Avoid any distractions. Women shouldn’t wear big earrings, and men should avoid chains or hats. Keep the focus on your face, not your accessories.
- Wear a decent top.
Your shirt or top will be the next thing that people notice after they see your expression, your face, and your hair, so you should get it right. The top should emphasize your best features, not distract people from your amazing looks and smile.
Here are some tips on what to wear:
- A simple, solid color. We’ll be using a black background, so avoid wearing lots of black (unless you want to blend in to the background).
- Avoid shirts that are wrinkled.
- Nothing white or yellow that may wash you out.
- No shirts with logos, pictures, or witty sayings. Those will distract people from your face.
- Avoid wearing anything too trendy. Your nautical-style shirt may be in this fall, but you will look ridiculous and dated years later. PLEASE wear something trendy. Dated photos and old fashion trends are half the fun of browsing a yearbook later in life.
- Have a good expression.
Don’t try out a new smile or expression on the day of the photo. Just give a natural smile that emphasizes your best features, and which actually looks like you.
- If you normally show your teeth when you smile, do it for the photo.
- Don’t slouch. Maintain good posture while you take your picture, and you will look better for it.
Remember to be yourself! Your yearbook photo is your chance to show off who you really are — not to look like a complete stranger.
- Keep it fresh.

Today in Milligan History
an ongoing project of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society
Good day, Milligan!
Proverbs 29:14 – A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom, but a child left undisciplined disgraces its mother.
This is Monday, September 29, 2014, and on this day in Milligan history . . .
1877 Communities in Tennessee voted on referenda to adopt Prohibition against the manufacture, sale, and transportation of beverage alcohol. Johnson City voted “dry” with a majority of 353 votes. Sullivan County went “wet” with a majority of 800 votes. Washington, Hamblen, Cooke, Greene, and Carter Counties all voted “dry.” Howard N. Campbell, Watauga: An Unusual History of the Watauga, Tennessee area, the Birthplace of Democracy in the World as We Know It Today (Kingsport, TN: Arcata Graphics), 1986, p. 60.
1949 The second of the two power generating plants associated with the new Watauga Dam, whose backed-up Watauga River waters completely covered the town of Butler, TN, started producing electricity for the grid supplying Milligan College. The dam’s first unit had started generating power August 30. The legend in the powerhouse at Watauga reads “1942- BUILT FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES-1948.” The once uncontrollable Watauga River, now transformed into a beautiful lake, began producing power instead of floods.
2005 Milligan alumnus, Christian recording artist, and Southeast Christian Church (Louisville, KY) worship minister Greg Allen (1998) addressed the Milligan College chapel service.
Birthdays: In 1758 Horatio Nelson in Burnham Thorpe, England . . . in 1810, Elizabeth Gaskell in the Chelsea section of London. Gaskell was the abiding research interest of Milligan College professor Ruth M. Lavender (at Milligan 1998-2012) . . . . . . in 1901 Enrico Fermi in Rome, Italy . . . in 1907 Gene Autry in Tioga, TX . . . in 1923 O.A. “Bum” Phillips in Nederland, TX . . . in 1929 Bob Newhart in Oak Park IL . . . in 1943 Lech Walesa in Popowo, Poland . . . in 1948 Bryant Gumbel in New Orleans, LA . . . in 1995 Milligan College sophomore Brittany Lee Helms in Charlotte, NC . . . and in 1995 freshman Zachary Thomas Greene in Lexington, KY.
Elsewhere . . .
In 1829 Sir Robert Peele’s London’s Metropolitan Police Force walked out of Scotland Yard to patrol the city for the first time.
In 1890, at the Polo Grounds in New York City, the Washington Nationals faced off against the New York Metropolitans for the first official, professional baseball game.
In 1918 Allied forces scored a decisive breakthrough of the Hindenburg Line.
In 1953 the Milton Berle Show premiered on TV.
