The “Quest for the Best” awards seek to recognize outstanding student leaders who have typified and promoted the mission of the university.

3) Community service outside the SDSU campus, including volunteer work with medical, social service, theatrical, artistic, cultural, political entities, etc.; and
4) Leadership qualities and development, including the degree of involvement and initiative within activities, the furtherance of intercultural understanding, and evidence of the development of positive, ethical decision-making.
