QuestBridge Scholars Network at USC

The University of Southern California QSN Chapter 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 USC QSN Chapter aims to offer a family environment for Scholars on campus. In addition to regular group gatherings, the chapter provides a variety of academic, professional, and social opportunities for its members. In past years, through connections with Career Services and the Financial Aid Office, the chapter has hosted workshops related to student success. Additionally, the chapter has collaborated with other student organizations, like the Norman Topping Scholars, the First-Generation Student Union (FGSU), and local volunteer organizations.

Dedicated to building a strong community and support network, the USC QSN Chapter has hosted a welcome event to celebrate the arrival of new students and has offered a mentorship program. In addition to group activities, 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.
