Bioforms

Harvard Yearbook's policy is to include only those organizations recognized by the University in the official OSL activities list. We receive a list of registered organizations annually from the Student Activities Office. Your organization may not be listed as you expect, so look carefully; note that all PBHA organizations are listed under "Phillips Brooks House Association" and subgroups of official organizations (e.g. the Harvard International Review) are listed under the parent organization. If your organization is not listed, please contact the Office of Student Activities to inquire about the status of your organization.

Yearbook Questions

Several students find themselves in the same position. You can choose to be in either yearbook, but you can only be in one. Often students will choose to be included with their social class. If you choose to be with your social class, you must email us so that we can add you to the email list.
No. Unlike the Freshman Register, you can only reserve a place in the Yearbook when you take a picture.
No. We do not have access to those pictures.

The guidelines for submitting an alternative photo are as follows:

  1. Photographs must be taken by a professional studio and of very high resolution/quality (please use your best judgment). (As a general guideline, the size of the file needs to be 500K or larger for the photo to be of high enough resolution)
  2. Dress is appropriate business formal. Guys are required to wear suit jacket and a tie.
  3. For consistency, photographs MUST be in a standard yearbook pose. We reserve the right to reject any photos that do not follow standard guidelines.
  4. Students must have the right to reprint the photograph (either a consent form from the photographer or at least a statement from you certifying that you have permission, for our records).
  5. Photographs must arrive by November 30th, 2014 11:59PM.
  6. Must be submitted either:
    A. digitally via email to seniors@harvardyearbook.com with student's name and house affiliation in subject line.
    or B. via hardcopy (see mailing address below). Please keep in mind that we have the right to reject photos if the quality or resolution is too low.
There is a $50 processing fee for submitting outside photographs. You can either submit your credit card information to this email (seniors@harvardyearbook.com) or you can pay it by check, making it out to Harvard Yearbook Publications and mailing it to:

Harvard Yearbook Publications
PO Box 380002
Cambridge, MA 02138

Please make the check out to "Harvard Yearbook Publications, Inc". Include the student's name on the check so we may enter the check in our records properly.
