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.

- Commemorate Constitution Day at Rocky Mount
In connection with Constitution Day, Phi Alpha Theta invites you to participate in a field trip to Rocky Mount State Historic Site on Saturday, September 13, for a commemoration of Constitution Day. The group will meet in the parking lot between Hart and Sutton at 1 p.m. Admission $2.
Rocky Mount, the farm of William and Barsheba Cobb, served as the capital of the Southwest Territory (later the State of Tennessee) when Governor William Blount lived as a long-term houseguest with the Cobbs. Rocky Mount is now a replica of a working eighteenth-century farm where costumed staff lead tours as if it were 1791. Rocky Mount Living History Museum has special activities planned for September 13 to commemorate the 227th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America. After a tour of the museum and farm the field-trippers will be on hand for the official program commemorating the signing of the Constitution. The keynote speaker for the event will be Jeffrey Cobble, a Greeneville attorney, whose ancestor John Hart from New Jersey was one of the thirty-nine original signers of the Constitution. Mr. Cobble will also be joined in the program by Representative Timothy Hill, Tennessee 3rd District Representative. Attendees are requested to bring lawn chairs for the event. Light refreshments will be served and a modest $2 per adult attendee (children free) will be requested for the event. One of the day’s events will be the unveiling of a replica painting of George Washington attributed to Jane Stuart, early 19th century painter and the daughter of famed American portraitist, Gilbert Stuart. – See more at:http://www.rockymountmuseum.com/index.php/special-events/event/constitution-day/?eID=186#sthash.s7zHCNtT.dpuf

- Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score.

4) The total hiking distance is 5 miles. The majority of the trail is easy; a few sections are moderate in their steepness or need for cautious footing.
5) Swimming at the falls is allowed and even encouraged. You may choose, therefore, to wear a bathing suit under your hiking clothes, to bring a towel and/or a spare shirt, etc.
6) Safety first! Neither climbing on nor jumping from rocks will absolutely not be allowed at the falls. Wear good walking shoes (flip flops aren’t good walking shoes). Bring your own drinking water; you’ll need it. Anyone allergic to bee stings cannot go without an EpiPen or the like.

- “Les Miserables” actor on campus TODAY
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (April 23, 2014) — J. Mark McVey, cast in the iconic role of Jean Valjean for more than 3,000 performances of Broadway’s “Les Miserables,” will offer a mini-master class and informational session at Milligan College on Friday, April 25, from 1:30-3 p.m.
The session will be held in the Walker Auditorium of Seeger Memorial Chapel (Lower Seeger). It is free and open to the public.
McVey made his Broadway debut as Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables” after having won the Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Actor while on tour. He was also the first American to perform the role in London’s West End.
In 2008, McVey reprised the role with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to sold out crowds at the Hollywood Bowl and again in May 2011, in the 25th Anniversary Tour of “Les Miserables.”
He made his Carnegie Hall debut with Marvin Hamlisch and continues to perform with numerous symphonies around the country and the world. McVey made his PBS debut with the Boston Pops and followed that performance with the PBS Christmas Special for the U.S. Military, where he was featured with Marvin Hamlisch and The National Symphony Orchestra.
He has appeared in numerous PBS specials, national tours and Broadway productions. In addition, he earned a gold record for his participation on the Trans-Siberian Orchestra recording of “The Lost Christmas Eve.”
During his session at Milligan, McVey will talk about the business, host a question and answer session and finally critique the students who want to perform for him.
“We have several students prepared to sing for him, and we are all looking forward to learning from this consummate artist,” said Dr. Charlotte Anderson, assistant professor of the practice of music at Milligan.
Later on Friday he will give two concerts at First Christian Church of Johnson City, at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. These performances are being offered as a gift to the community, with tickets available for a suggested donation, and all proceeds going to benefit the Trinity Arts Foundation and WCQR Radio. Tickets are available at the church office, LifeWay Christian Bookstore, Trinity Arts Center, or online at fccconcert.com.
