In 2008, President Tim Hall asked Student Affairs to facilitate a year-in-review type publication documenting campus life and student achievements. After much discussion regarding the format, it was decided to revive the yearbook, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. Sherryl Byrd said.

“This is especially noteworthy at a time when more and more institutions have stopped producing yearbooks,” Byrd added. “The Monocle has exceeded all expectations and is proof of what a talented and dedicated group of students can accomplish. They have created a legacy that will benefit students far into the future.”

The book is available for viewing by alumni and members of the community by contacting the Office of Student Publications at (931) 221-7375. In addition, the 2008-09 yearbook and yearbooks from 1993 and earlier are featured in a special display in the Felix G. Woodward Library on campus at APSU until the end of November.

The book may be purchased at http://www.jostensyearbooks.com with a credit or debit card until Nov. 30 or by check or cash in the Morgan University Center, Room 115. As a true work of art featuring spectacular photography, copies of the yearbook would make great gifts as well as historical memorabilia for business lobbies around Clarksville.
