The Santamarian Yearbook
About the Santamarian Yearbook
The Saint Mary’s University yearbook is known as the “Santamarian”. Each year the book is produced by the Students’ Association Yearbook Department and a copy is provided to all graduating students. In 1995 there was a student referendum that passed which applies a $7 fee to all full-time students and a $5 fee to all part-time students to cover the cost of the book. This money is restricted entirely for the production of the book. The book contains a look back at the previous year with many pictures and write-ups. A typical yearbook contains a photo of the freshman class, messages from the Student President and the University President, events such as Orientation Week activities, Gorsebrook Lounge activities, Society activities, and Residence activities. Also included is a year in review of the SMU varsity and club teams. At the back of the book you will find the graduation section. This section contains the grad list of all graduates with their degree, certificates and hometown listed. The grad photo section includes pictures of all the grads that submitted photos to the yearbook. Each year, the yearbook contains grad lists and photos from all graduating students. (For example: The 2006 yearbook project began in September of 2005 and captures all activity in the 2005 2006 academic year including the spring convocation in May 2006 as well as the fall convocation in November of 2006) The yearbook is then mailed to student in February/March of the following year (2007).
Please Note: SMUSA will NOT accept photos that are not submitted electronically or that have no been taken by a professional photographer with a professional backdrop.
