Hillsborough Community College is a place that attracts a talented, diverse, and entertaining group of students and professors alike. Our large school boasts huge accomplishments and achievements throughout its history that draws in students from around the country and the globe. I hope that as you look through the 2017 edition of the Triad, you will really enjoy the magnificent works that these students have spent hours creating, not only for themselves but for you as a peer and observer.

Artwork comes to life in many forms and can be appreciated by anyone with an open mind. One can interpret a drawing, painting, news article, photograph, short story, or poetry in a variety of ways. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and that is why being creative an thinking outside the box is so important.

Dr. Gaspar has done an outstanding job this year in ensuring students got excited about submitting their works for a chance to be published in the Triad. HCC is not a stop in a students college career, but instead, it is a stepping stone that can catapult them into amazing professions and career fields.

I began my college years at a later stage in my life after serving in the military, and I am thankful for the opportunity to have studied here. I have been accepted to Columbia University in New York City, and I plan to attend the school in the fall of 2017.

    I really like the cover art that was chosen for this. It has so much going on but it allows for anyone to interpret it in any way they wish. The work that was put into the 2017 Triad shows how dedicated students and their instructors are to gaining as much as they can from their educational career.

    This is an awesome art piece that was chosen to be on the cover of triad’s 2017 publication. my favorite part is the man with the goggles on in the corner. it seems like I=he is looking into the past or the future.

    I think the artwork chosen for the Cover of this article was perfect as Jared included in his writing “Dr. Gaspar has done an outstanding job this year in ensuring students got excited about submitting their works for a chance to be published in the Triad”. Any individual that comes across this artwork, reading the article or not will be able to tell the creativity and detailed work came from dedication and passion to step out of the box! Keep up the great work!

    This cover art is very unique as it poses a variety of different images that can be interpreted in many different ways. I also like how HCC gives students with artistic talents a chance to be published in the Triad as this could help them accomplish their future career goals.
