TAPS yearbook to move to quarterly magazine
TAPS, Clemson University’s yearbook, will print its final edition at the end of this academic year.
The yearbook, which has been ongoing since 1908, has seen a steady decline in sales and will move to a quarterly magazine in Fall 2018. The decision was made since physical books were expensive to make in contrast to how many sales they were getting. TAPS decided to make something more cost effective and of more interest to students.
Final editions of TAPS yearbook are on sale now for $85. The quarterly magazine will be free to students, supported by advertising, donations and activity fees.
