The name of the new Austin Peay State University yearbook is The Monocle.

On April 29, the new name of the yearbook, which has not been produced in several years, was announced. The new name signifies a distinctive part of the Universitys mascot, the Gov, seen wearing a monocle as part of his costume.

In the early 1990s, APSU ceased to publish the yearbook, then named Govs Pride. In earlier years, the yearbook was called Farewell and Hail. The naming committee agreed that a new name was needed to signify where the University is today and where it is going.

Tammy Bryant, director of Student Affairs, said a yearbook has been in the division's sights for some time, and she could not be prouder that it is back in publication.

“We have an exceptional student staff working to produce the first yearbook at Austin Peay since 1993,” she said. “Publication this year will begin a new era of recording the next exciting chapter in the University's history.”

Members of the community are invited to purchase copies of the book at http://www.jostensyearbooks.com.
