The Dartmouth College QSN Chapter, known on campus as the Dartmouth Quest for Socioeconomic Engagement (DQSE), provides a welcoming and supportive community for its members. QuestBridge Scholars can engage in chapter activities, apply for leadership positions, and participate in opportunities offered nationwide through QuestBridge, including access to QuestBridge Alumni Association resources.
Founded in 2010, the Dartmouth QSN Chapter provides resources and a close-knit group for Scholars, while sharing a broader message of class awareness to the larger Dartmouth community. In past years, the chapter has collaborated with various organizations on campus to offer workshops on financial aid, money management, and how to search for internships. Additionally, the Dartmouth QSN Chapter has hosted discussion panels with Dartmouth faculty, and “Dinner Discussions” that encourage reflection on class and relationships, classism and meritocracy, and the "Dartmouth identity.”
Dedicated to building a strong community and support network, the Dartmouth QSN Chapter has held fun social events like movie nights, study sessions, picnics, ice-skating in the winter, and water balloon fights in the spring. In addition, there are always opportunities for underclassmen to get involved in chapter leadership and initiatives. Each year, newly appointed chapter leaders and Executive Board members work together to plan new programming to ensure chapter members feel welcomed and engaged.
