Last week students took over the Free Expression Tunnel as a part of Transgender Awareness Week to honor lives lost due to transphobia and anti-transgender violence in America. This year Transgender Awareness Week made an effort to draw attention to the intersectional lives of transgender people through the theme “Honoring the Intersections.” The week highlighted the different issues that transgender individuals face in their lifetime.

Yet another deadline has been successfully completed, putting the staff at the halfway point to finishing the 2019 Agromeck. For the Spread of the Deadline this time around, the Agromeck leadership staff chose Rush Week, focusing primarily on the mission and philanthropy of each Sorority at NC State. Editor-in-chief Katie Tart chose this spread because of the vibrancy found in the photos. “I like the brightness that the pictures portray, in the colors chosen for each sorority, the glitter, and the excited smiles of new recruits,” Tart said.

Last Friday, Agromeck had the pleasure of talking to two seniors in the College of Textiles about a project that played a large role in their time at NC State—The Pillowcase Project. Sara Lewis, a senior in fashion and textile management, and Carly Kvietok, a senior in fashion and textile design, work diligently every semester with a team of volunteers to create playful and fun pillowcases for the patients at the UNC Children’s Hospital. These two Park Scholars shared the origins of the project, and how it has grown into something big and meaningful to their lives.

Latinx Heritage Month began in full swing Sept. 15 and has shown students the culture and liveliness of Latinx people. To honor that liveliness, this photo illustration was chosen by photo editor Kaydee Gawlik for Agromeck’s photo of the week. “This is kind of a common shot that can very easily be overdone or overused, but it knows what it is. It knows it’s a photo illustration,” said Gawlik. “This particular photo recognizes the many facets and colors that can be found in the history and culture of Latinx Heritage Month and its respective community. When used sparingly, a photo illustration leaves little room for misinterpretation.” To learn more about the…
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.

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.
