Document your first year of college through pictures of your experiences.

Students take pictures each week around a theme related to their college transition. The group meets together to discuss their photos and experiences. Photos are featured at a gala at the conclusion of the term.

At the end of each semester, the students’ work will be showcased in a gallery exhibit for the campus community to view. Weekly subjects may include themes like Confidence & Anxiety, Core Values, Home at the U, and many others.

Prior experience with photography is not a requirement. For students without a camera, the Center for New Student & Family Programs has cameras that can be loaned to participants for the duration of the program.

To learn more about how to become a part of the program, please contact the Center for New Student & Family Programs at (801) 581-7069 or

Learning outcomes for those participating in the program include Campus Community, Academic Persistence & Achievement, Practical Competence and Critical Thinking.
