2019 QUEST orientation applications being accepted

Jackson State Community College is currently accepting applications for QUEST, a week-long orientation for incoming first-time freshmen who identify as African-American males.

QUEST participants experience team-building activities, community networking, one-on-one advising, career counseling and other unique opportunities to connect with JSCC students, staff and faculty. The purpose of QUEST is to help students to prepare for success in college and beyond.

This year’s QUEST is scheduled for August 5 – August 9, 2019. Activities begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. each day except for Friday, August 9, when activities will end shortly after noon. Lunch is provided each day. QUEST also includes evening activities on Monday – Thursday; these are strongly encouraged but are not mandatory. Dinner will be provided to all who participate in evening activities.

JSCC can accept only 25 students into this year’s QUEST. Those participants who take part in all activities during the week will receive a stipend of $400.

The deadline to apply to participate in QUEST is noon on July 12, 2019.

In addition to the above application, participants must have applied to the college and been admitted to JSCC.  You also will need to schedule and participate in a Great Expectations (GE) orientation session once your admission application is accepted.

This year’s QUEST participants will be selected and notified by July 19, 2019.
