The NU yearbook staff wants your definitions

An example of what the next yearbook book cover will look like, and where the definition may be placed.

An example of what the next yearbook book cover will look like, and where the definition may be placed.

Every person on this campus is a Niagaran, but what does it mean to be one? That is the question that the campus yearbook, the Niagaran, is trying to solve.

The Niagaran is holding a contest for students to submit their own definitions of what they think a Niagaran is. The winner will have his or her definition featured on the cover of the 2011 yearbook and will receive a $50 gift card to the location of their choice along with recognition in the yearbook.

Kristen Masood, editor of the Niagaran says that the theme for the 2011 yearbook is define. "We chose the theme ˜define' for next year's book because it was something that we could involve the student body in," said Masood.

Although the winning Niagaran definition will be featured on the cover of the yearbook, runner-up entries may be included in the book as well.
Other definitions will be included in the yearbook, such as those defining athletics and administration.

So far, only about 10 entries have been submitted. The deadline has been extended from April 30 to May 12 in order to receive more entries. Definitions can be submitted via e-mail to niagaran@niagara.edu or they can be dropped off in the Niagaran's mailbox located in front of the Campus Activities Office in Lower Level Gallagher Center.
