MUNCIE, Ind. Ball State University is bringing its student yearbook back in a completely new form following a 17-year absence.

Journalism instructor Brian Hayes says the high cost of publishing yearbooks "makes it nearly impossible" for Ball State to have a traditional one like The Orient, which ceased publication in 1997.

But Hayes says students in an immersive class who worked for a year created the concept of the new yearbook called Cardinal Life that can now be ordered online.

He says it's more like a year-in-review because it's a summary of the past school year's major events and lacks a photo album and student-group sections.

Ball State has entered into a partnership with national yearbook producer Friesen's, which is selling the new yearbook online.
