While Raleigh was left mostly unscathed by Hurricane Florence’s appearance over the weekend, certain parts of the Triangle, such as the Raleigh Rose Garden, was not so fortunate. We decided to feature the outcome of Hurricane Florence as this week’s photo of the week to show how natural disasters can affect the community. “This photo really puts into perspective the scale of hurricane destruction,” said photo editor Kaydee Gawlik. If you or another student you know is struggling as a result of the hurricane, visit the Pack Essentials website for a list of available resources. Click here.

After the commotion and chaos of move-in weekend, new and returning students are finally settled into their on campus living spaces.

With another deadline finished and sent off to print, comes another sneak peak into the 2019 Agromeck. The chosen spread of this deadline features students recapping on their experiences while living across the globe. Design editor Julia Harrison suggested this Study Abroad feature because of the different experiences that students can have from the program. Visually, Harrison likes the added touch of the world map to the spread design. The map background connects the images submitted by students to their locations on the globe, making the spread more informative, Harrison says. To order your 2019 Agromeck, click here.

To kick off the beginning of the 2019 Agromeck, Editor-in-chief Katie Tart selected one of the most meaningful NC State traditions, which she believes best represents the theme for this year’s book. “Connected” is the concept chosen by Tart, because she wants to show how even one of the largest universities can be intertwined in so many ways. This spread featuring NC State’s Ring ceremony, is a good representation of the theme, because it shows how a simple ring has so many connections to the university and the people in it, Tart says. Tart also loves how the fine detailed shots of the class ring show the University’s history. To…
