Letter from the 2014-2015 Grinnell Quest Liaison
And welcome to the Quest Scholars page for Grinnell College. My name is Carlos Ortiz and I am Grinnell’s Quest Liaison. I am here to help you and help make Grinnell’s Quest Chapter fun and reliable for you. I hope you are all very excited to come to Grinnell, as it is an amazing place full of enormous opportunities (even though it’s small!). At Grinnell, you will find various things to fill your time with, from joining the many clubs organizations and playing sports to getting externships, providing or receiving mentoring, and participating in break projects. One other really good thing about Grinnell is its open curriculum. There is only one required course, which is your tutorial, and the rest is up to you to follow your interests and see where they take you. At Grinnell, I am involved in the Food Recovery Network, the Grinnell Science Project, and Grinnell College Phonathon. I am an intended chemistry major and I aspire to complete the 3-2 engineering program.
I plan to make a lot of out of this Chapter this year. I want to give all of you a space where you can share your interests, hang out with other amazing students, relax and take breaks from studying, give back to the community, and build a close, supporting and reliable group! I have some events and projects planned this year that you will all hopefully be able to participate in. I am very excited to meet all of you. Remember that I am here to help you with any questions you may have. I am your main form of communication with the Quest HQ in Palo Alto, California. If you have any ideas or questions about the chapter or Grinnell College, feel free to ask me.

Your Quest Liaison,
