I have been a member of NSCS for almost 4 years. This organization is everything I expected to be and more. I have been able to meet a lot of different individuals from diverse backgrounds and I have had unique opportunities to get involved in the surrounding communities. NSCS stresses service to all and is one of my favorite aspects of this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make this organization known to more individuals who are not in college and want to make a difference. I feel that NSCS should have a service feature that allows college aged students to do service with this organization.

NSCS is an excellent honors organization dedicated to promoting scholarship in the early college years. The chapter support network and large number of scholarships truly help with adjustment to college academics/money issues.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Many of this organization's actions are inefficient. There are definitely more streamlined ways for NSCS to run.

NSCS as an honor society is a very well rounded organization. Not only does NSCS promote academic excellence by providing scholarships, they also encourage community service and integrity. All the NSCS staff have a sincere drive and passion for what they do, and they execute their tasks in a selfless way :) Working as an intern with NSCS, the staff were very welcoming and encouraging, and they taught me so much that I can actually use for the rest of my life :) Thank you NSCS

NSCS main goal is to help its members and potential members with anything they might need during and even after their college experience. NSCS offers multiple opportunities for students both on the local (chapter level) and the national level. I think this is something that makes NSCS very unique. This organization gives you the opporutnity to interact with so many different networks. Everyone is so happy here at NSCS and that really makes a difference on how they perform their work, they are overally happy to help with anything you might need. I am excited now as an intern, knowing a lot more about the organization, to take advantage of all that NSCS is generously offering.

NSCS is one of the few honor societies that makes it a point to off true life time membership. Even as an alumni I can be as engaged as I want to be. NSCS has made me a better thought leader and mentor.

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is one of those rare honor societies that represents more than just good grades, mandatory meetings, and stuffy procedures. Though national, NSCS makes you feel like you're part of a family, and in the large, anonymous world of college, that means a lot. You learn so much about yourself, you grow personally and professionally, and you meet people who will become part of your life forever.

I joined NSCS because I was looking for a way to get more out of my university experience. I didn't really know what to expect, it is, after all, an honor society, right? What could that entail? Some workshops that offer advice on being highly effective, a speaker or two on how important education is? After joining, though, I discovered just how unique, how valuable, and even how fun this organization actually is. I've learned so much in my capacity as a Chapter President, and as a member of its National Leadership Committee, and I've made friends that I know will last a lifetime. How many organizations promise personal growth on every conceivable level, and actually deliver? Just one. NSCS.

Students frequently ask me why I joined NSCS, and my answer surprises them every single time: I joined because I wanted to make friends with people as nerdy as I am. The scholarships, the discounts--those are all just an icing on the cake. I joined because, for me, it was a fun, productive thing to do. One year later and I've become a published writer, a blogger, and I've been interviewed and featured on Fox News TV, Scholar Ready, and HCCTV (to name a few!). But I didn't make it here alone--the same friends I sought and made at NSCS are the exact same ones who have inspired me and helped me become the person I am today. One of my goals as a member of the National Leadership Council is to spread the word about how NSCS does more than just add another line to your resume. Join, and don't forget to enjoy being a part of this amazing team when you do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change a thing.

My experience with NSCS has been nothing but positive. joined as a sophomore in college and NSCS was the first organization I ever joined. I immediately took on leadership positions (a step FAR out of my comfort zone) and became hooked. I am now involved in many organizations and it is all because of the doors NSCS opened for me. Of course I could talk all about the scholarships that NSCS offers, or the friends you will make, but to be completely honest it is the things that I have learned about myself through NSCS that I cherish the most. Before joining I was shy and uncomfortable taking on responsibility, but now I am confident in my academic career and my life choices. I have learned how to lead. I have learned how to speak in front of rooms full of people. I have learned punctuality and professionalism. I have learned that if an opportunity comes your way and you are interested in it you should take it. I have learned that trying new things can lead you down a wonderful and unexpected path. I have learned that my time in college is just the beginning of being involved in my community. I have learned that I can make a difference. NSCS is at the root of this all, and the organization is full of amazing people who care about your experience. I am beyond satisfied with my membership experience.
