PER ANNOS is Hopkins' yearbook. It has a long history of striving to reflect life at Hopkins beyond the traditional paradigm of a school yearbook; in fact, it hopes to reflect the annual culture of the school. Seniors are given great input into the makeup of their sections and much is done to produce a balanced profile of the school. Its editors are extensively trained by professional yearbook publishers and most PER ANNOS staffers have been in the organization for years before reaching top editorial positions. It is the nature of yearbook staff members to work long hours in anonymity before their year-end project sees daylight. This committed group is known for its diligence and its superior final product. In past years, PER ANNOS has been recognized in top yearbook competitions.
