Four male high school students wearing college-themed sweatshirts stand embracing together in a line, smiling and facing the camera. A woman with a gray sweatshirt stands in the middle of them.
A young Asian woman wearing a green shirt sits on the floor laughing and smiling while holding onto a pit bull type dog. The dog looks directly at the camera, happy and comfortable - it wears a purple bandana and its pink tongue is sticking out.
Two women perform together in a dance against a dramatic black background. One facing the camera has her arms wide open in a graceful dance move; behind her is a woman dipping down toward the floor.
