When I get these, I like to play a game called "Spot the Cliche College Photo." Basically, I've noticed that the majority of pictures used in college brochures are variations on the same basic idea. It's fun to go through and see them all. All are actual photos from college websites or brochures.
I just find it really funny how all their pictures have the same theme.
I grouped these based on the major categories I usually find. Some fall into multiple categories. There are a lot of other groups that I didn't include, like "Students with Face Paint in the School Colors" or "Students Standing in Front of a Blackboard With Complicated Equations Written On It." Let me know what ones you notice!
The "Smart Kids Wearing Lab Coats"
(this category may also contain "Students Looking Through a Microscope" or "Students Waering Safety Glasses" or "Students Holding Up a Test Tube and Peering Into It")
The "Students having Fun on the Quad"
The "Students Working Together, Because We Are All One Big Happy Community"
The "Students Doing Things With Complex-Looking Mechanical Items"
The "Our Students Have School Spirit!"
