Commodore Yearbook Portraits

Yearbook Portraits are taken in the fall semester for all undergraduates and early in the spring semester for students who are studying abroad or otherwise were not on campus in the fall. Notices are posted in The Vanderbilt Hustler (student newspaper), by postcards sent to the parents of undergraduate students, in the InnerVU (delivered to each residence hall room) and posted generally throughout the campus. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements to have portraits taken each year to appear in the Commodore yearbook. For information on yearbook portraits, please visit their website.

Generally, yearbooks are shipped in the fall semester following the academic year. The only way for a student to receive a yearbook is to order one. To order a Commodore Yearbook and/or Parent Congratulatory Ad, please visit their website.
