Editorial Director, 19 years old (pictured with his mom): "The building directly behind us is Wheeler Hall, which is the home of the English Department (at the University of California, Berkeley); I was an English major."
Production Manager, 18 years old: "The Busboys' last performance of their only song, 'Don't Touch My Body,' circa summer 1992: the last known photo of Brian Roundtree (far right) before his public resurfacing again around Thanksgiving 1998."
Advertising and Marketing Art Director, 17 years old: "I look back on this as my first foray into long distance cycling. My first multiday ride across the state was the 1996 Ride of the Rockies—I think the glasses were unfortuantely with me that day too."
Print and Digital Traffic Manager, 17 years old: "I was scooping ice cream at Baskin-Robbins in Evergreen."
Senior Editor, 14 years old: "Shirking the Christmas tree-hunting duites in Oregon to play with a stray dog (not surprising). Note the red scrunchie. Classic '93."
Senior Editor/Digital Editor, 13 years old: "I was smack dab in the middle of junior high, which meant I couldn't decide if I was an adult or a kid. Cue the shoulder pads and pigtails."
Technology Manager, 10 years old: "I likely forgot that it was picture day at school, so I wore a teal-colored turtleneck. Luckily for me the background clashed."
Senior Account Executive, 9 years old: "Just horsin' around."
Assistant Editor, 9 years old: "Seeing this picture almost makes me want to start wearing tie dye again...almost."
Art and Photo Assistant, 9 years old: "I'm holding a pig while visiting cousins in Iowa while on vacation from Colorado."
Marketing Director, 8 years old (with her brother, Alan): "My family took a sabbatical to London for six months—my father taught through Ithaca College. My brother and I went to public school in London (he was in second grade). We traveled all around Europe."

Copy Chief, 7 years old: "I was already showing signs of becoming a crazy cat lady."

Advertising Assistant Designer, 5 years old: "In Geneseo Ill., I was sititng on the porch steps of our old Victorian. My love for dogs clearly started at an early age."
Senior Editorial Intern, 5 years old: "That shirt was made of silk; I remember it vividly."

Advertising and Marketing Coordinator, 4 years old (middle): "Cinderella and her posse—her ability to accessorize should never be underrated!"
