Photographer Sarah Cochran captured the North Carolina National Guard Military Funeral Honors Unit performing the Three-Volley Gun Salute in honor of World War I Veterans of NC State.
Photographer Sindy Huang captures a piece from the Art2Wear “Wearable Paper Project” collection where first year students in the College of Design have the opportunity to show what they have learned and play a role in the Art2Wear Fashion show.

The theme of this year’s show was “Caesura: The Art of Interruption.”
