Welcome back for the spring semester, LaGrange College! To celebrate the the new year, The Hilltop News proudly presents its special issue, TRANSFORMATION.
This issue is particularly special. For one, it was curated by a section of English 1101, LaGrange College’s first-year writing program. In this section, students learned the standards of news-writing and editing and helped select the articles that were submitted for publication.
Furthermore, over half of its articles were written and edited by first-year students. Their subjects range from the fake news phenomenon to the new academic programming being designed and offered by LC’s forward-thinking faculty.
Also in this issue you will find long-form nonfiction composed by upper division students in Dr. Laine Scott’s advanced composition course. The writing in these pieces is distinguished by its depth, precision, and beauty.
