Hillsborough Community College provides opportunities for creative minds and quirky ideas from students and professors to join together and show the world what they have to offer. Our college, with its five campuses, cheers on their students as they put their artistic abilities to the test. As you read through our 2018 edition of the Triad, I hope you will marvel at the beauty of the students’ pieces which they have created with their hearts.

Art comes in numerous forms. This edition includes paintings, photography, poems, and short essays. Each piece shares part of the artists’ souls that they were willing to have publicized.

Through the support of Professor Gaspar, students were excited to submit their art in hopes to make a difference in someone’s life. Thanks to HCC, students are able to take the next step in exploring different artistic fields that can guide them into the next chapter after finishing at HCC.

I began my college journey in 2016 right after I graduated from high school. I have cherished every moment at my community college and have grown more into the person I am meant to be. I plan to transfer to a university to continue the journalism journey.

    I teach a Reading class in HCC EAP Department and would appreciate if you can make it possible to read stories online from TRIAD 2018 edition, so that the class can go online and read one of the stories there.
    Waiting to your feedback. Thank you,

    I love the art in the Triad cover for 2018. It is not at all boring and so nicely designed. There is always something new to be looking at on the cover.

    The artwork is so create and definitely out of the box. HCC ybor campus is my favorite school because the atmosphere seem so surreal and enchanting. I hope all the students that submitted their works got the opportunities they were desiring. Talents like this should not go unseen.

    I love the cover art photo is leaves me wondering on what can it mean. I love how you have explained what the Triad has to offer. Which is down my alley because paintings and poems are interesting to me. I also like how you breiefly gave information on yourself as well. I agree with the first comment about having the stories online because it will give a huge boost in numbers for Triad, Good luck.

    Usually, art does not receive as much attention as math or science. I really appreciate the effort of HCC to give all the students those opportunities. Furthermore, I read the Triad and I saw so many talented people being part of this project. Congratulations everyone!

    I agree when you say cheers on their students as they put their artistic abilities to the test, students and artists on all 5 campuses are now being put in a more uplifting environment as the campuses are incoprtating art on the walls, painting stair cases, getting well known artists to do a mural on the walls, letting the talented students showcase their work to be SEEN! This is one of the many reasons HCC is bette than any community college in Florida!

    I really enjoyed looking at this art work. The hawk media club does an amazing job in piecing together all the key events of each year. I was given the privilege to look over the 2019 Triad and it was so beautifully designed and well thought out. I hope one day I can join this club and help Triad create a successful and content filled magazine.
