Letter from the 2014-2015 Northwestern Quest Liaison
Congratulations on becoming a part of two very important families: the Quest Scholars Network and Northwestern. In both of these, there is a ton of room for growth and exploration, all while knowing that you have an amazing support team cheering you on all the way through. I am here as the link between these two families, so feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns, or just to say hello!
Your time at Northwestern will be a defining moment in your lives, and an experience you will not ever forget. Remember, this is your time: you are here for a reason, so take advantage of this amazing opportunity. I am sure you will hear often that college is a time to step outside your comfort zone: first, figure out what your comfort zone is, and then find what you are truly passionate about.
Over the years, I have learned that it is easy to fall into the trap of comparing yourselves to other people. While it is important to set goals and expectations for yourself, these should be measured based on what you find to be interesting, challenging and inspiring, instead of what others define as "success". It is natural that these goals will change over time, but it is very important that they are always in line with what you want, not what you think others would want you to do.
This being said, congratulations Northwestern University class of 2018: we are here to support you from the very beginning of your freshman experience and for years to come.
Your Quest Liaison,
Sylwia Andrzejczak ‘15
