Mentors guide students beyond the books

Tom Phillips, director of the Wake Forest Scholars Program, has guided many Wake Forest students, as they plan their careers after college and follow their dreams.

He’s been working with scholarship students since he graduated from Wake in 1974, earning his Master’s degree along the way, upholding the tradition of mentoring relationships that the University’s 11-to-1 student-faculty ratio makes possible.

Senior Amy Liang credits Phillips’ guidance not only during her academic coursework, but beyond the books.
