Hillsdale College’s official student yearbook, The Winona, seeks to advance the Mission of the College by creating a record of each school year. It strives to summarize and illustrate activities on campus with accuracy and beauty, preserving the memories of students, faculty, and staff from each school year. The yearbook staff seeks to include all campus groups, teams, clubs, Greek organizations, and extra-curricular activities in each edition, and all students are welcome to join the staff.
The Winona yearbook is an annual student publication. The Winona team gathers photos and content throughout the academic year and compiles it into a beautifully designed book that can be purchased by students at the beginning of the following school year. All graduating seniors receive a yearbook for free, delivered to the home address they have on file with the college.
All Hillsdale College students are welcome to apply for the yearbook team. Positions include designers, photographers, editors, and a variety of other positions. Applications are available in early September each year, and students are not required to have any prior experience to apply. Successful members exhibit attention to detail, excellent communication skills, a creative spirit, a positive attitude, and willingness to learn. Members are highly encouraged to enroll in the 1-credit Winona Yearbook Design class each semester, which serves as the organization’s regular meeting time.
