Issue 1 (2017) The Mall: Writing from Butler University’s First Year Seminar 2016 - 17

A Note from the Editor-In-Chief

Hello Readers,

As the Editor-In-Chief of this edition of The Mall, let me be the first to introduce you to this wonderful book! My executive team and I worked countless hours, and read hundreds of essays to find the best of the best First Year Seminar (FYS) essays to be published. The purpose of The Mall is so current and future first-year students could have an understanding of the writing standard that is upheld at Butler University. This publication is not here to intimidate you, but to motivate you. Readers will find works covering anything from a student’s experience on campus, to another’s thoughts on philosophical readings from their class. The Mall provides students with a wide variety of works to find inspiration from. Butler has been known to do great things on the court, but it is up to us to prove that Bulldogs also achieve in the classroom. Of course, thank you to the English Department, FYS faculty and students, and to all who have supported and taken a part in this endeavor.
