Quest Freshman Honorary selects 36 new members

By Tyler Johnson

The new members of Kansas State University's freshman honorary, Quest, have been selected for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Quest is dedicated to the promotion and development of leadership and service skills among freshmen students. Each Quest member is paired with a member of Blue Key, a senior leadership honorary, to ensure mentorship, success and exposure to leadership experiences throughout their first year at K-State.

Members are given the opportunity to explore K-State's various programs, including athletics, campus government and the arts. Through these experiences they also receive the opportunity to network with many of K-State's top student and university leaders.

Students are selected for membership in the fall semester of their freshman year based on a competitive application and interview process. Demonstration of leadership and service in high school are important selection factors for Quest membership.
