Architecture Coaching, College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater

Scott Cornelius, an OSU junior architecture major from Canyon, Texas, has served two years as a mentor for undergraduate students in the Architecture Coaching program, providing academic and leadership support to fellow students.

Lance Millis, director of Student Services for College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology, praised Cornelius as a diligent mentor and outstanding student who is a leader in student organizations and respected by his peers.

“He helps his peers be more successful and willingly shares his experience with younger students,” Millis said. “He is a role model for fellow students and an excellent spokesperson for our major.”

During the college’s Summer Bridge program, Cornelius promoted the architecture major to prospective students and helped participants through a difficult architecture challenge.

“Because Scott is a leader in architecture student organizations, he encouraged me to get involved and told me specifically what I’d get out of membership,” one of his mentees wrote. “He also connected me with faculty and other students in my major.”

About the Program: OSU’s Architecture Coaching Program is a seven-week program for all Architecture and Architectural Engineering freshmen, who are matched with upperclassman mentors.
