Almost a week has passed since the NC State class of 2018 turned the tassel on the next chapter of their lives. This shot of graduates from the College of Veterinary Medicine was taken by senior photographer Nick Faulkner, and was selected for Photo of the Week by photo editor Kaydee Gawlik.

Gawlik selected this picture because it is a well-exposed photo that demonstrates a genuine interaction among peers who are celebrating the end of their struggles.

Students looking to purchase photos from their graduation year can buy them here.
