QuestBridge Scholars Network at Caltech

Hello and welcome to the Caltech Chapter Page. Our mission is to provide a safe and social environment at Caltech for QuestBridge Scholars and provide new opportunities. We hold meet-ups and participate in QuestBridge activities and our immediate goal is to join with other clubs on campus and start giving back to community through service projects. Long term, we would like to see the chapter grow and develop new traditions and programs for future Caltech QuestBridge Scholars to be a part of.

To grow as a chapter, we have reached out to different organizations and clubs on campus. We have relations with the admissions office, sharing shirts with them for National Quest Day. Additionally, we have received assistance from the Caltech Center for Diversity. The Assistant Director provided us with support and resources and has been to one of our meetings to chat with us. Aiding in our goals, we hope to join with clubs and groups on campus for events.

Currently we do casual meet-ups at least once a term where we catch up, plan for new events, and enjoy a catered lunch with one another. These are great opportunities to meet fellow students who share something in common, everyone being QuestBridge Scholars. Upperclassmen can give advice to our new “frosh” and share their experiences as a “Techer”. We are hoping to also implement mentorship programs and student-professor lunches to aid discussion about future careers and navigating research. We hope to welcome you to our Caltech family!
