YOUR PHOTOS CAN BE IN THE YEARBOOK!
A new program — SNAP! – is available for yearbook. YOU can download photos for the yearbook to include.
We are especially looking for action photos, not posed photos or selfies. We know lots of fun, interesting, exciting, humorous things happen on campus, and our photographers can’t be everywhere. When you submit your photos, you will get photo credit in the yearbook, too.
Here are the directions:
1) Go to yearbookforever.com
2) Click on Community Upload
3) Type in Corban (it will show you Corban College — we plan to get that corrected).
4) It will ask you for the code, which is Corban.
5) Download your photos!
It’s that easy! Sending your action/candid photos (no selfies please) will help the yearbook staff to fill the book with GREAT photos, and it will enable you to see YOUR photos in the yearbook. Any questions email Professor Ellen Kersey.
COME TO AMBEX!!! (You won’t regret it!)
If you want to have the best semester of your life… GO TO AMBEX! You can do this while receiving a full semester load of classes!
