Harvard Yearbook Publications is responsible for the creation and production of the Senior Yearbook as well as the Freshman Register (also known as the Facebook). The Freshman Register is an extremely useful hardbound reference book for freshmen that contains photographs, addresses, and secondary schools of class members.

2018 Freshmen Register
The Freshmen Register, also known as the Facebook, compiles images and information from the incoming freshmen class so that students may get to intimately know their student body at the beginning of the Harvard experience.
The Harvard Yearbook Photography Board prides itself in training college students in advanced photography skills. Students undergo a rigorous, semester long training with professional photographers and student photographers. Training includes a wide variety of equipment and photography situations – including low light photography and fast photography. Equipped with a unique point of view, all of our photographers strive to get the “money winning shot”, to have their photography represent an event or group in the best way possible and now we’re offering that service to you, for any event, group or outing you might want photographed. Contact us for more information!
