Letter from the University of Virginia Quest Liaison
Welcome to the University of Virginia's Quest Scholars page! Although we’re only in our second year as a Quest partner college, we have been able to build a strong sense of family and community within our chapter.
At UVa, we follow the concept of student self-governance, instituted by Thomas Jefferson. Under this thought, we students run the entire organization on our own, with minimal involvement from staff. However, we still gain support and advice from faculty and administration. So although the Quest Scholars Network chapter is completely run by students, we have the amazing opportunity of involving ourselves and creating personal relationships with amazing faculty such as Dean Casteen (Associate Dean of Student Life), Dreama Johnson (Career Services Counselor), Robert Barrett (Financial Services), Jason Puryear (Admissions Counselor), Dean Roberts (Dean of Admissions), and Dean Gregory (Associate Dean of Admissions) whom our chapter has come to affectionately dub "Mama Gregory.”
As the Quest Scholars at the University of Virginia, we’re dedicated to raising awareness of socioeconomic issues within the UVa community, as well as informing local high school students on the greater opportunities they may have by enrolling at a college or university.
This year we plan on developing our plans further so as to reach out to more high schools in Virginia. We also plan to create an even closer-knit Scholars group with the upcoming class. Please enjoy looking through our Scholars page and the events we plan, and hopefully you'll then want to join our UVa Quest Scholar family! Good luck with your college applications and we hope to see you at UVa!
