Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival

Best of Feat, VIMFF

The mission of Quest Outdoor Pursuits is to make the outdoors accessible to all Quest students by meeting them where they're at. Sometimes this can take the form of trips and workshops or simply providing the opportunity to view adventure films. By hosting the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival’s Best of Fest tour, the OP strives to awe and inspire students and the Squamish Community with a range of outdoor and adventure films.





TEDxQuestU celebrates diversity of thought, interdisciplinary fields, and new ideas. Both the Quest and Squamish communities get to hear new voices as our speakers share their passions and innovative thinking. TEDxQuestU is organized by students in partnership with the global TED organization.

The Power, Race, and Privilege Symposium is an annual event created and organised by students at Quest University Canada. The symposium aims to foster critical awareness and dialogue about the ways that institutional, internalised, and systemic racism intersect with other oppressions and create experiences of marginalisation, privilege, and resistance. By putting Quest faculty and students in conversation with other respected scholars and activists, we hope to deepen our understanding of the ways that power and marginalisation function both on our campus and beyond. Want to get involved? We'd love to have you.

“Queer Prom” is now an annual event that started in 2018, hosted by the Lumen Room staff and volunteers and funded by QUSA. Made to honor our LGBTQIA+ community and create a safe and fun environment to socialize, dance, take cute photos and do normal cheesy prom things. Considering regular prom can be pretty cis-heteronormative, we want to offer students a chance to reclaim and celebrate “prom” their way!
