Each year, Student Affairs honors outstanding students and the faculty and staff who support them.
The Quest for the Best Vice Presidential Student Service Leadership Award has been given annually for the past 27 years to outstanding student leaders who typify and promote the mission of San Diego State University. This award recognizes individual excellence in academics, participation in student activities, commitment to service, and the pursuit of personal leadership development.
Ten exceptional San Diego State University students have been selected as Quest for the Best award recipients this year. In addition to honoring these student leaders, Quest for the Best also recognizes student-nominated faculty and staff members for their dedication, mentorship, and genuine concern for the success of their students. The winners will be honored at a formal banquet at KPBS Studios in April.
