Wesleyan QuestBridge Scholars aim to make Wesleyan a more inclusive environment for all students, not just those with low-income identities. Diversity drives what the QSN stands for, and our group primarily focuses on community service, student expression and activism, and college access. The Wesleyan University QSN Chapter aims to create a community of students, faculty, staff, and administration who support and understand the experiences of first-generation and low-income students, and is officially recognized as a registered student group on Wesleyan's campus.
We regularly collaborate with The Office of Equity and Inclusion, the Office of Student Affairs, the Office of Financial Aid, the Career Center, the Office of Admission, and ResLife, among other offices on campus. We also encourage members to join a growing mentoring community, provide opportunities to connect with alumni, and work frequently with other student identity and interest groups on campus.
Some examples of events we often hold are meet-and-greet luncheons between students and first-generation or low-income faculty and staff, community building activities such as movie marathons or outdoor hikes, and study breaks in which students can relax and de-stress together from the everything students may face during college.
