The Wellesley College 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 2005, the Wellesley QSN Chapter aims to create a safe space for students from underrepresented communities and to provide resources related to student success and career preparation. In past years, the chapter has connected Scholars to their mentor families and has hosted a variety of workshops and events related to academic, financial, mental health, and social support.
In 2019, the Wellesley QSN Chapter was awarded the Spirit Award for National Quest Day — an honor that only one QSN Chapter receives each year for their display of creativity and pride in their QuestBridge Scholar identity.
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.
