QuestBridge Scholars Network at Macalester

Welcome to the Macalester College QSN Chapter page! We started as a group in the fall of 2017 and are dedicated to strengthening our on-campus presence and supporting other QuestBridge Scholars, first-generation students, low-income students, and students of color as they navigate their college experiences.

Our members work closely with the Department of Multicultural Life, the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship, and the Office of Admissions in order to achieve these goals. Chapter members collaborate with these offices to host campus visits for local first-generation college students, annual QuestBridge bingo nights for admitted students during Spring Samplers, and to organize chapter-wide volunteer opportunities.

We also hold regular chapter meetings to provide updates and cultivate safe, supportive spaces for members to discuss shared experiences in college and beyond. As a fairly new chapter (the class of 2023 marks our third official class of QB Scholars), we look forward to growing our community with more incoming QB Scholars in the future!
