The QuestBridge Scholars Network at Washington University in St. Louis

WashU QSN cheerfully welcomes you to our Scholar page! Going into our second year on campus, we are so excited to savor moments of bonding and team building among not only the QSN Chapter, but also our collective body of first-generation, low-income peers.

Our mission as a support system for every student on campus truly reflects our university, and drives us to contribute to our community and make a positive impression on those surrounding us. Just in our first year, we were deeply encouraged by the efforts of the Career Center, the Financial Aid Office, and other established Student Support groups like TriO, to name a few.

Going forward, we hope to display a warm collaboration with more of our wonderful offices, such as the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, to communicate that all scholars are cared for and inspired to thrive socially and academically on campus. For the coming year, an emphasis is on stimulating creative comradery among scholars with the use of small-scale bonding events and service projects. We are also welcoming original ideas for annual QuestBridge traditions! All incoming Scholars on campus - including those matched and accepted via Regular Decision - are also given the special opportunity to represent their class as Freshman Representatives! Because our chapter is jumping off of the ground this year in size (by a scale factor of 5!), we are looking for many Questies to help! The representatives, along with our talented Executive Team, will be working together to translate ideas into programming designed to foster social connection and solve problems together.

We have never been more ready to make the QuestBridge Scholars Network at WashU a well-functioning system of shared experiences, social grace, and scholarly excellence amongst low-income students. Looking forward to getting to know you.
