YEARBOOK UNIVERSITY FAQ's

WHERE WILL WE BE EATING AND SLEEPING? Housing accommodations will be at the Living Learning Center Dorms on the USU campus.  Two students are assigned to each dorm room. Each suite has its own bathroom. Students from the same school are grouped together, and every effort is made to follow roommate preferences. Girls and boys are housed separately. Adults are assigned to single-occupancy rooms in the campus dorms or at the University Inn Hotel. All meals will be served at the HUB in the Student Union Building. 

 

HOW ARE STUDENTS SUPERVISED? Attendance is taken at class sessions, and students are expected to be in class unless they have been excused by the Workshop Office due to illness or an appointment. Resident students must sign in each night with our Graduate Assistants (college students) during dorm checks. There are adult staff in charge of supervision 24 hours per day. Students needing to leave campus must sign out in the Workshop Office and must sign in upon their return. 

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY? In the event of a medical emergency involving a camper, the Workshop Staff will contact the parent/guardian immediately and take the student to the Urgent Care facility that is located close to the campus. In case of an emergency at home, parents or guardians should call the Workshop Office at the University at 801-547-9495. For more information, contact the workshop director, Shelly Hansen at utahyearbooks@gmail.com.

CAN I PARK ON CAMPUS? Campus parking is strictly monitored by the University, and cars without a current parking permit will receive a ticket. A special overnight pass must be picked up if you are a resident or commuter and is available at the Eccles Conference Center Registration booth. Student residents may not use their cars while they are at camp. 

 

DO WE HAVE FREE TIME? Although the schedule is full, we have activities every day so you can enjoy bonding time with your staff and have some fun. On Tuesday, there is a yearbook exchange and team building activity to help you get to know the other campers. On Tuesday evening there is a Just Dance and Karaoke party. And finally, on Thursday, we celebrate your accomplishments and view the camp slide show at the Awards Assembly. 

 

WHAT IF WE ARRIVE LATE? Please plan to arrive during registration on Tuesday, June 25th, between 7:30 am and 8:50 am, so that you won’t miss any of the workshop offerings. If a family schedule or other conflict necessitates late registration, you should report to the Workshop Office (in the Eccles Conference Center) when you arrive, and the staff will ensure you receive all of the camp materials and escort you to the current activity.

HOW DO I PAY FOR THE WORKSHOP? Please pay your school directly and then we will bill the school for the workshop.
