Abigail Anne Rafael, Senior Editor

Every year, Kean University has the honor of issuing thousands of degrees. Every one of these degrees was earned through years of perseverance and hard work. Kean University encourages every student to memorialize this important milestone with this year's upcoming senior portraits.

Seniors can book a free appointment by calling (800) 687-9327 or visiting ouryear.com and inputting the school code 518. 

Seniors can select any one of the following dates:

  • Monday, Feb. 11
  • Tuesday, Feb. 12
  • Wednesday, Feb. 13
  • Monday, March 25
  • Tuesday, March 26
  • Wednesday, March 27
  • Monday, April 1
  • Tuesday, April 2
  • Wednesday, April 3

Seniors will then be prompted to select a time between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. After selecting an allotted time, students will receive a confirmation email with a code should they wish to cancel or change their appointment. Senior portraits will be located in the Miron Student Center (MSC), Room 315. 

Seniors are also encouraged to dress both neatly and professionally to reflect the significance of the occasion. Next, students will be given a cap and gown to pose with. Two to three weeks after their session, students will then receive the proofs of their photos with package options for purchase. Any simple retouching of minuscule imperfections are standard for every photo; however, Enhanced Retouching for more major changes need to be purchased with the package. 

Prestige Portraits gives the following guidelines for the best picture potential:

  • Select attire that would be appropriate for a job interview
  • Men are encouraged to shave or trim any facial hair
  • Women may want to consider bringing some of their makeup with them for touch-ups
  • For those preferring to keep their glasses on, the photographer will do their best to emit lens glare
  • Try not to actively go tanning beforehand as to prevent sunburn or tan lines in the photo

Above all, don't forget to smile!
