Quests and Questions
Quests and Questions is a student-led organization committed to discerning Callings. As undergraduates, we recognize this discernment process is in many ways tailored toward discovering fulfilling career paths post-graduation, but we also recognize that Callings are not limited to careers. We seek to discover enriching, purpose-driven lives through a peer mediated mentor network.
Quests and Questions consists of three primary objectives:
1. Become conversant and capable with Callings concepts and activities
- Ask big, meaningful questions concerning issues related to Callings
- Foster a student-led mentoring environment for discussion and discernment
- Discover life-long quests in pursuit of answering our Callings
2. Connect students with opportunities for discerning their Callings
- Alumni Speakers, Conferences, Internships, and Externships
3. Initiate and participate in a community service project
- Seek vocational clarity through serving those in need
