University of Chicago
Letter from the University of Chicago Quest Liaison
The UChicago Quest Scholars Network welcomes members old and new to our chapter! My name is David Maugaotega; I am a third-year in the College, and I will be serving as the Liaison for the 2012-13 academic year. Our Scholars community is looking forward to helping one another learn about Chicago and our campus, and helping incoming students understand just what it means to call yourself a Phoenix. The time has come to take flight, and may your years at the University present you with a world of possibilities.
Nestled in Hyde Park, the University of Chicago campus is an architecturally astounding work of art seamlessly incorporated into the urbanity of the city. The Gothic-style edifices strewn with vibrant ivy are a sight to behold, and students can most certainly lose all sense of time with a stroll through The Quadrangles, even if for a minute (unless you’re late for class, of course). This is one of the many diverse neighborhoods the city of Chicago has to offer, each with its own sense of culture and a distinct atmosphere. Accessible to so much and with so much to offer itself, the UChicago community is bustling with life and this zeal is reflected each day in the actions of its students.
As a UChicago Scholar, you will have all of this at your disposal, as well as the added advantage of having a group of peers who are familiar with the journey you have taken in getting to the Windy City. They will be able to empathize with your eagerness to partake in fresh experiences now that you have reached your destination, and help you make the most of your college career. Through volunteering opportunities, chapter meetings/study breaks and special chapter-coordinated events, you will be given plenty of opportunities to strengthen your ties with the organization and your fellow Scholars. From this, you will take part in constructing a framework of emotional, academic and social support you can count on.
