Opportunities for Involvement

One of the greatest strengths of the QUEST program is its vibrant alumni community. In our 28th year at UMD, we have over 1,200 alumni all across the world. We welcome alumni participation in a number of areas.

Alumni Events

With regular happy hours and other social events in the DC area and beyond, the QUEST network provides great opportunities for social or professional connections.

QUEST Alumni

In the Classroom

QUEST regularly invites alumni back to the classroom to serve as guest speakers, co-instructors, or presentation panelists.

QUEST Alumni

At Your Company

Students in QUEST’s scoping course venture beyond the borders of College Park to meet with organizations and learn more about their company culture and operations. Alumni often make great project champions for projects in our capstone and data analysis courses. There are also opportunities for QUEST to visit your company’s offices during study abroad trips or our QUEST to Silicon Valley trip each spring.

Social Events with Students

QUEST holds a number of events to foster relationships between current students and alumni. From networking dinners, to football tailgates, to community service events, there are a number of ways to get involved with QUEST students.
