The Cornerstone Review: A Journal of Student Work
The inspiration behind the Cornerstone Review germinated out of the work our talented undergraduate students creating under the guidance of our marvelous Liberal Arts faculty.
Cornerstone students are talented and given a little nudge, a little guidance, and incentive, they like to write, create, and perform and their products are truly wonderful – smart, reflective, and creative.
This journal is dedicated to some of the very best of their work.

The Cornerstone Review - First Issue

This first issue contains student work that dates back to 2018, from our Frankenstein/ AI short story contest, to 2020, when we asked students to reflect upon their isolation brought on by the global pandemic. In between, we have essays on death, discrimination, gentrification, the role of women, Renaissance politics as well as short fiction. Students analyzed and were inspired by the works of the Stoics, Homer, Montaigne, Castiglione, Machiavelli, Kafka, Camus, Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelly, August Wilson, and Margaret Atwood among others.
