The end of an era
This year’s Pandora will be the last printed edition of the nearly 125-year-old UGA yearbook, staff members told the Athens Banner-Herald in April. Sales of the student-produced book have declined for years and no longer justify the printing cost. “We’re not going to sell the books that we need to sell in order to break even,” Pandora adviser Cody Ward said. The book sold 1,846 copies in 1999 but only 506 last year. Only 335 copies of this year’s Pandora had been sold in April. But the staff is planning to produce a digital Pandora next year that will be distributed free to students in combination with a graduation CD the UGA Alumni Association is already providing to new graduates.
