Mississippi State, Virginia Wesleyan, DePauw, and Purdue will no longer sell yearbooks starting next year, the Daily Mississippian writes. Students and advisers cite budget cuts and declining demand as key factors in the yearbooks' demise, with networking sites like Facebook and MySpace taking a good chunk of the blame. At DePauw, the Mirage sold 371 books for its 2,300-person campus this year; At Mississippi State, only about 300 yearbooks were ordered for the school's 17,000 students.
