Current Issue: Volume 2019, Issue 1 (2019)It’s no secret that balance can be a challenge in everyone’s lives. Balancing work, school, hobbies, relationships… it can all get a little overwhelming at times. In this year’s publication, TYGR Magazine hopes to visualize and explore the various intricacies of this topic through art and the written word. When balance is achieved, there is a certain level of completeness that is entirely dependent upon each part involved. This is true in the realm of art, of literature, of busy schedules.
With the finalization of this TYGR, we come to appreciate all the work and dedication of each member of our team. TYGR would not exist without the effort and talent of the writers and artists within these pages. Thank you for finding balance in your own schedules to share with us and with our readers. We would also like to graciously thank our staff, each of whom has put in considerable time and effort in making this year’s TYGR magazine a reality. Thank you to Professors Forrestal and Greiner for your support, patience, and guidance throughout this process. We are also grateful to Jasmine Cieszynski for assisting us throughout our transitional period. Each of you has contributed a necessary part to the completeness of this TYGR.
Finally, we would like to thank you, our readers. Without you, this work would be for naught. May this year’s TYGR be an opportunity to escape from homework into a story, relax from your day with a painting, and create a moment of balance in an otherwise hectic world.
So, take a breath, relax, and enjoy the book.
