Seniors can get their photographs taken for The Warbler yearbook at the journalism conference room in Buzzard Hall via online registration from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19.

The conference room is located on the second floor of Buzzard Hall in the journalism office.

In order to sign up for senior photos, students must register online at, where they also select which package they prefer.

For senior headshots, different packages vary in price, but students can select a basic option for free when they register and reserve a time for photo shoots.

Carole Hodorowicz, senior journalism major and editor-in-chief of The Warbler, said seniors could also have their photos retaken if they did not like how their previous ones turned out.

While seniors are not required to have their photos taken for the yearbook, Hodorowicz said she would highly recommend doing so.

“I just think you should have your photo in (the yearbook) because that’s a part of your legacy,” she said. “It’s a part of your history and it’s a part of your time here, and that’s how you remember it.”

Kelly Isaacson, senior graphic design major and design editor of The Warbler, said she thinks now is an especially good time to sign up for senior photos because the next yearbook the staff is designing is the 100-year anniversary edition.

With regard to the design of the upcoming yearbook, Hodorowicz said The Warbler will be “tying in the old with the new.”

For seniors, the staff gives out yearbooks for free with the caps and gowns until they run out, she said. 

For students who are not graduating seniors, they can pre-order the yearbooks online at for $20, if they would like, but must pay an additional $10 if they need them shipped, Hodorowicz said.

While designing the yearbooks can be a very time consuming process, Isaacson said The Warbler would have them ready in plenty of time for students to order them at their own leisure.

The new yearbook will be fully produced in April and finished by March of this year, Hodorowicz said, and she recommends that students order them as soon as possible.

With regard to online registration, students should have received an email message from the school with more information about yearbook photos, she said.

For students who have not already created an account with Lauren Studios, Hodorowicz said they would need to use the client ID or school password provided in the email Eastern sent out.

If students have registered to have photos taken in the past, they can simply log in again using the same information.
