More than 30 seniors were honored April 26 in Holmes Lounge for their involvement and contributions to the Academic Mentoring Program. Cornerstone: The Center for Advanced Learning, located in Gregg Hall on the South 40, is home to the program, through which student volunteers provide academic help to other students. There are more than 300 academic mentors, 95 of which are scheduled to graduate in May. For more information, go online to cornerstone.wustl.edu/acadmentoring.htm.
