In 2020, students reinvigorated the activities of University Photo Service. At risk of losing their longtime home in CC305, the students launched a marketing campaign among alumni donors and local news outlets (Albany Times Union, WAMC Northeast Public Radio) to shine light on the active student group. They were also poised to publish the first Torch Yearbook in six years when the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly shuttered the campus.

In 2022, Torch Yearbook finally returned to print once more, marking a triumphant resurgence despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.

In 2024, students decided to forgo the traditional printed yearbook and instead hosted a gallery exhibition showcasing their photography. Each member displayed four photographs at the Boor Sculpture Studio to celebrate the end of the academic year.
