Debuting in 1922, the Nautilus has not only been the annual yearbook publication of Eastern Nazarene College, but a tradition. Nautilus has been the cornerstone for preserving student history from the “Who’s Who” of graduates to noteworthy underclassmen attendees.

The 1922 edition of the Nautilus, with its loose leather binding, contained literary pieces from the student perspective as well as personal descriptions of graduating seniors written by well-known President and key founder Bertha Munro.

Moving forward in history the late 60s, 70s, and 80s brought with it a greater opportunity to produce and print colored pictures within Nautilus’s pages. The focus of the student-run publication took to the dorms, cafeteria, classrooms, courts, and fields to capture the more authentic and memorable moments of the Christian college experience.

Today, with access to technological advances through Student Government Organization financial support and other contributors, Nautilus has enjoyed an online publication process utilizing various publishers and printing houses for over a decade. The current Nautilus staff is dedicated to carrying out the publication’s long tradition of recording history to the page through photography, graphic design, literary media, journalism, and even videography.

Favorite Yearbook: I love the 1922, the first edition of Nautilus. It captures a time we are so far removed from now, and yet connects us to it still through our historic campus and the continually life changing college experience.
