This field is continually changing and grow- ing because of rapid technological changes taking place. There is indeed a challenging opportunity for those who choose any of the many rewarding profes- sions within this vast industry. At Niagara College our program is divided intofour separate courses: Art and Camera Copy Preparation, Typesetting, Process Photography and Offset Print- ing including related subjects such as Copywriting, Proofreading and Bindery. The first year ' s two semesters include all of the four main courses to provide the student with a basic working knowledge of each of these skills. The students will learn the many different pro- cesses used in the production of printed material, from the development of the original idea through the Art, Copy and Assembly stages including Typeset- ting, to the Camera Film assembly, Platemaking and on to the printed reproduction. In the second year during the two semesters the student will devote studies to only two of the four skill areas. This concentration intotwoof thefourcourses together with the knowledge acquired in the first two semesters will prepare the graduate to be more flexi- ble in seeking suitable employment in a complex and competitive market.

Some of my inter- ests include sketching, hockey, skiing, football, and music. While attending Stamford I was enrolled in the art pro- gram and enjoyed it very much, so much so that I was inspired by it, and decided I wanted to further my educa- tion in some sort of art field. It was then suggested I look into Graphic Arts, I did so and found it looked interesting and promising for future employment. For me, taking Graphic Arts at Niagara proved to be a wise decision not only because of the course, but I have also made many new friends. I enjoyed my first year very much and decided in my second year to major in Art and Offset Printing. I am mainly interested in the Art Program and plan to seek employment in graphic design or layout work. Rick Arnds Throughout my four years at Centennial Secondary School, I actively partici- pated in many of the clubs and athletic activities the school had to offer. I played four years of football while participating in badminton and wrestling for three. During my senior year I was a member of the Photography club and was instrumental in producing the senior year book. After high school I enrolled in the Niagara College Graphic Arts pro- gram. I have always enjoyed art and worked on it in my own spare time. In the second year of the program I majored in Art and Camera Copy Preparation and Process Photography. During the past two years in this course I ' ve taken a genuine interest in the ■ Graphics field as well as acquiring an insight into it ' s workings. My hopes for the future are many, but for the present I plan to find employment in the Graphics field in a major city and strive for my dreams. f My four years of high school were proudly spent at Notre Dame College School here in Welland. Through school my interests included art, drama, and cheering at the many Fighting Irish foot- ball games my friends and I faithfully attended. It was my interest in art and its use in advertising that first made me consider entering the Graphic Arts Program at the College. I wasn ' t exactly sure what the course completely entailed but I wanted to give it a try. My first year at the college was a real eye-opener. I became aware of the many career and job opportunities that would be available to me upon graduating. In my second year I majored in Art and Typography, the two courses which interested me the most. I enjoy college life a lot more this year because now I feel I know what direc- tion I want to move in when I leave. Upon graduating, a career in typesetting is what I am really hoping for, but what- ever field of the Graphic Arts Industry I enter into I plan to give it my all. Karen Bellinger Cindy Boutilier After graduating from high- school, I took a year off to decide what to do with the rest of my life. While working full-time, I decided that I wanted to go back to school. Business Administration was full so I took Graphic Arts, It was the right choice for me because I enjoy practical training rather than theory. My majors are Typography and Offset and asidefrom the odd lecture in Typography most of the work is practical When I ' m not in school slaving over a hot press, I enjoy all types of sports, watching cartoons and read- ing Agatha Christies, After recieving my diploma from Niagara College I intend to go to another College so I can elaborate on myGraphic Arts skills I ' m lying, I just don ' t want to work full-time yet and going to school isn ' t work for me. I want to get all the education my little brain can handle! My favorite season of the year is summer. I love the beach as well as canoeing and camping. I recently acquired a 35mm Camera and although the results haven ' t been too good, I am still working at it. Travelling has always interested me and being young I still have a lot of sights to see. In my senioryear I majored in Typography and Photo- graphy. My main interest lies in the field of Typography in which I plan to pursue a career. With a lot of hard work and dedication I hopetofulfill my every goal. Hannah Buckley I am an American who plays baseball, eats apple pie and drives a Chevy. I attended High School in Niagara Falls, Ontario and decided to further my education at Niagara College in Welland. My reason for attending Canadian schools rather than American was simply that I felt the quality of education was higher than that which was available to me in my own area. R. J. Burger A large portion of my spare time is devoted to fitness. Three times a week after classes, I enjoy weight train- ing at Phil ' s Health Centre. I also like to run for relaxation; this I do all seasons. Soccer is my favorite team sport. I find it equally fun playing or watching. Painting and draw- ing are hobbies I occupy myself with at home. My favorite subject matter is the depiction of people. I have been active in 35mm photo- graphy for the past 3 years. I usually seek scenes involv- ing action or theme setting situations. I believe the fewer major goals one has, the greater opportunity of achieving suc- cess. The continuation of exercising is dominant in my life. Another goal is to keep pursuing fine art. Photography and art were the majors I chose this year. With the aid of these two courses I hope to find employment in layout work or camera operation. decided that the program wasn ' t what I really had in mind. The course leaned heavily on accounting and I was more interested in advertising and consumer relations so I decided to switch to the Graphic Arts program, hoping it would lead to a job in the advertising business. My majors are Art and Typography. Typography is In highschool my majors were Marketing, Drafting and Art. My main goal was to get into display and advertising. I enjoy playing tennis and swimming as well as winter sports like cross-country ski- ing and tobogganing. After highschool I enrolled in the Business Administra- tion program at Niagara Col- lege with plans to major in Marketing. After one year I my main interest and I hope to get a job as a photo type- setter or a related position. I would like to get a job in the area but I will relocate if necessary. Ruth Green Since I have been sep- arated for six years I feel as thougfi I have raised my five children on my own. This is an accomplishment of which I am very proud. It has given me the feeling that I have finally succeeded at some- thing, and prepared me for going out of the house, and trying even more. I want to be self-sufficient and support myself, and I want my child- ren to do the same even- tually. Graphic Arts has intro- duced me to job opportuni- ties that I didn ' t know existed. My two majors, Offset and Typography, although caus- ing me a few frustrations, are very intriguing to me. Typography is frustrating work, but it is also very chal- lenging to me. You have to hustle to getthe assignments i done, and just when you think your ' re catching up, there ' s another assignment waiting for you. For this type of work you must be alert or the com- puter tells you you ' ve made a mistake. My classmates have given me help and encouragement by accepting me. I will not forget the people involved in my years at Niagara College and wish them every success. artistic.This is the reason why I took both Typography and Art in my second year at Niagara College. In the future, I would like to expand in the field of Graphic Arts. Preferably, in that part dealing with Typography. For myself, I know that I couldn ' t be totally fulfilled without a career. So, after I graduate i would like to work with a firm which will provide me with I have always had a strong interest in art. Now, my interest has developed into the form of oil painting. Also, while I was in high school, my interest lay in Math and Science. Therefore, my career decision became a difficult one. I had to find something that was both technical and artistic. I finally discovered my future field in Graphic Arts, as it involves both the technical and the many opportunities. In closing, I would like to thank all those students that have made the past two years extremely enjoyable for me. I wish for them future success in the field of their choice. Dawn Halpenny Shelly Jones With graduation only months away, I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce you to myself. As well as being a member of the Ladies Intermediate Softball Team for my home- town, Fort Eire, I am inter- ested in horses and skiing. Although unsure in the beginning of exactly what the course was offering me, I have no doubt that my typing skills as well as my voca- tional art courses were a def- inite asset in preparing me for Graphic Arts. Now that I have nearly reached my goal, I have begun to set many more. One of which is to someday work in an agency from nine to five with week- ends off. My highest aspira- tion however, is to learn to be satisfied with what I feel is my best. At present, I am majoring in Process Photography and Design but have experience in Typography as well as run- ning a Multilith 1250. I would like to work specifically in a photo department but feel that employment in any of these other fields would make for a great beginning. the world of advertising. Windsor is my next destination. As you can see, I love to travel, and plan to do more of it in the future. As unusual as this may sound to you, I find all four majors quite intriguing and interesting, but I could only choose two (Typography and Art). The mechanical part of the commercial art interests me very much. I will try to use I was born in Montreal into a family of 9. 1 worked full time in the credit department of the Montreal Star before I decided to take Graphic Arts at Niagara College— oh well, that ' s another story! I found that I couldn ' t express myself at work the way I can through Graphics. This program constitutes one stepping stone to my career. It gives me some idea of what IS waiting for me out there in my typographical skills as well as my knowledge in photography in my next employment. I would also like to take a few drafting courses when I leave Wetland. I am sure the future will be very promising for me as well as for my other classmates. I shall not forget all the friends I made here in Welland and in St. Cath- arines, where I reside. Johanne Lalonde Robin Morse A lifelong resident of Nia- gara Falls I received my high- school education at Stamford C. V. I. .While there I earned my O.S.S.H.G.D and school letter. English, math and art were my preferred subjects along with partici- pation in basketball, football, and volleyball. Upon graduation I chose Niagara College because of my interest in art, both fine and commercial and the fact that Niagara offered a com- prehensive Graphic Arts pro- gram. Its proximity to my home in Niagara Falls made my choice easier. My first year at Niagara provided a very broad and interesting look at the field I have chosen. Typography interested me greatly, thus in my second year I chose Typography and Art as my two majors. My preference is Typography especially Com- puterized Typesetting. My goals for the future de- finitely include a career in Computerized Typesetting, as I find this work both chal- lenging and intriguing. As for the present — " If I could take one moment in my hands, Mister I ain ' t a boy, no I ' m a man, and I believe in a prom- ised land. " ft I ' ve always had an interest in the fine arts but the visual representation of art always appealed to me most. In the printed media there are unending possibilities in designing and creating new ways to present the printed page and that ' s where I ' ll come in. In my spare time I experi- ment with different art medi- ums but lean towards pencil, ink, pastel and watercolor. I still plan to expand my knowl- edge of art with some formal training as I ' m sure it would benefit my career-but that ' s not in the immediate future. Some of my other interests are reading, skating, danc- ing, music and photography. When I first started college. Graphic Arts was new and unfamiliar to me but now I know it ' s the field I want to be involved in. Majoring in pho- tography and art has shown me the creative aspects and I hope someday to be employed in a publishing house or an ad agency as a layout design artist. The last two years have been a great learning and liv- ing experience for me-and I hope for my fellow class- mates too--good luck everyone!!! Cindy Perry Debbie Steffen I would like to take this time to introduce myself andto tell you about my plans in life. I have always liked art and have won a number of art awards. This is why I decided to go into the Graphic Arts industry. I would like to direct my talent toward the design and layout aspect of the field. I would also like to try my hand at the artistic possibili- ties in the communication media of television. Being on campus has given me the opportunity to assist students in other courses such as Radio and Television Broadcasting and Theatre Arts. I have also been involved in " outside " jobs which have given me the experience in design and working with people. Besides my great interest in art, I also like to travel, play tennis, music, photography, movies, television and meet- ing new and interesting peo- ple. The two years that I havei been on campus, have,: increased my interest t-o learn a great deal of the busi- ness. It is really too bad that the year ended so quickiyi b have enjoyed myself andH; will really miss all the friends that I have made, .in the twa years. GoOj -igdpQc teiclQ] everyone. qA to 9Q«iloO During my years at E. L. Crossley Secondary School in Fonthill, I was enrolled in the Arts and Sciences Pro- gram and focused mainly on Art and Architectural Draft- ing. I was encouraged to look into the possibility of seeking a career in the Graphic Arts Industry. After high school, I enrolled in the Graphic Design Program at Sheridan College of Applied Arts Technology in Oakville. While there, I became very inter- ested in layout and design and decided to make it my career. With two years of design from Sheridan I real- ized that I wanted to be knowledgeable in what hap- pened to my designs between artwork and the printed piece. It was then that I decided to enroll in the Gra- phic Arts Program at Niagara College of Applied Arts Technology with hopes that they would help me to make my career a success. Upon graduation, I hope to find employment in a design studio and I plan to someday have my own studio. Lynn Terescsik Eric von Wallis My high school days were spent at Niagara District Secondary School where I majored in science and tech- nical subjects. After graduat- ing in 1975, I attended the University of Waterloo, stud- ying science and psychology for two years. It was here I began to develop interests in music, bicycling, books and swimming. Following this, I decided to work for a little while, and got a job as an inspector in the General Motors foundry. After two years here, I began to feel a need to find a more challeng- ing occupation and one with a future so I decided to enter the Graphic Arts program at Niagara College. My first year was most successful, and I took an interest in the Typography course in which I majored the following year. With all of this, I hope to find a position as a typesetter with a firm in Toronto. There I plan to learn as much about the field of Communications with a view to moving to Europe in the future. were Typography and Photo- graphy. Upon graduation in June 1 981 , I hope to seek a career evolved around pho- totypesetting and photo- graphy. When not attending school I enjoy downhill skiing, travel- ling, and photography. I am presently employed in the Robinson ' s Camera Depart- ment at Niagara Square. It ' s a good job but I hope to find During high school my major interests were market- ing, office practise and thea- tre arts. My main interest and goal for a future career was office practise. After one year on the year- book committee at Niagara District Secondary School, I was influenced to take the Graphic Arts Program at Nia- gara College, for further edu- cation in the printing field. My majors during the course something more challenging after graduation. In closing, I would like to wish all my fellow future graduates in the Graphic Arts Program the best of luck in finding the job they will really enjoy. Good Luck and Best Wishes, always.
