Cornerstone Experience Logo

Cornerstone Experience Logo

The Cornerstone Experience logo is recommended by the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Committee based on a conceptual design by Florida SouthWestern State College student James Shears.

The DIAMOND duplicates the shape of the Florida SouthWestern State College logo, symbolizing quality of instruction.

The interlocking BUILDING BLOCKS highlight the four theoretical constructs framing the Cornerstone Experience course.

  • Critical Thinking
  • Relevancy
  • Applied Learning
  • Success Strategies


The words CORNERSTONE EXPERIENCE cradle the bottom of the logo to signify the supportive foundation that the course provides.
