The QuestBridge Scholars Network (QSN) at Northwestern

Founded in 2008, the Northwestern QSN Chapter partners with Student Enrichment Services (SES) to create a strong support network before, during, and after students' undergraduate experience. In addition to advocacy efforts, the Northwestern QSN Chapter has hosted a variety of social programs, including a Thanksgiving event, called QuestGiving, during which Scholars can gather to celebrate the holiday.
