Is it the right foot or the best foot?

The old saying of "starting out on the right foot," or "putting one's best foot forward," means to, "try for the best possible impression, or to make a good start".* People sometimes say this phrase when talking about a job interview, but it also applies to how one begins a new quarter at school.

Kandace Rogers, Wendell Barnett, and Hilary Writt, the librarians at the Lexington campus, welcome Spencerian and Sullivan students, whether this is your first quarter or your eleventh, and we want to share some tips and tricks to help you put your best foot forward this quarter.
