QuestBridge Scholars Network at W&L

The Washington and Lee 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 2009, the W&L QSN Chapter aims to support Scholars as they transition into their first year of college and provides resources throughout their undergraduate experience. In past years, the chapter has collaborated with the Office of Admissions, Career and Professional Development Office, and deans in order to provide opportunities, including service projects, Quest Mentoring, and workshops on career development, financial assistance, and more.

Dedicated to building a strong community and support network, the chapter has hosted a start-of-the-year cookout, Thanksgiving dinner, Accepted Students Day, Induction Ceremony, Halloween costume contest, and a trip to the mountains. 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.
