Macalester College

QuestBridge Scholars Network at Macalester

We are the Macalester QuestBridge Scholars Network Chapter. We started as a group in the fall of 2017, and are dedicated to developing the QSN within Macalester and helping other QuestBridge Scholars, low-income students, and students of color adjust to life in college. We work closely with the Department of Multicultural Life to achieve these goals.

Beyond the Department of Multicultural Life (DML), we work with the Office of Admissions and the Alumni Board. A large number of our chapter members collaborate with admissions to host prospective students during the Macalester Extended Fall Sampler.

We hold events such as Alumni Dinners, hosted by the Alumni Board, QuestGiving events for our scholars who can't go home during Thanksgiving Break, and regular chapter meetings, to provide updates for the chapter and hold discussions about its existence and development. We hope to continue to grow the chapter with more incoming QuestBridge Scholars in the future.
