The Oberlin QuestBridge Scholars Network (QSN) has been active on campus since 2007. Chapter members share a strong interest in increasing multicultural & socio-economic awareness and providing support to their own communities with which they identify. Oberlin students are highly committed, exceptionally busy, and intensely passionate. With this in mind, our chapter often holds events supporting reflection and rest, such as familial dinners, panel discussions, and holiday card-making sessions for the incoming freshman class.
We work closely with the Office of Student Academic Services (SAS), who provide mentors for all first-year Pell-eligible, low-income students, including QuestBridge Scholars. They also provide tutoring sessions, 'How-To" sessions, and meet-and-greets with other campus offices. We have partnered with the Office of the Dean for funding and awareness, and the Bonner Scholars Program, a four-year community service scholarship program offered by Oberlin College in collaboration with the Bonner Foundation. Many QuestBridge Scholars are also Bonner Scholars.
When you plant your feet on the Oberlin campus your first year, you'll enjoy the benefits of peer mentorship, grow through mealtime discussions on race, class, gender and other issues, and experience the support and camaraderie of the QSN. We look forward to having you join our chapter and grow it into a closer, more caring community.
