We're sorry you feel you didn't get any value out of your NSCS membership. As you may recall, membership is for life so there is still time for you to benefit. You get out of it what you put into it - leadership training, career preparation, grad school preparation, volunteer opportunities, exclusive scholarships, being part of a community, and so much more.

I've had the best opportunities to grow as a professional during my time in NSCS. The scholarships are so incredible and show just how dedicated this organization is to help its members. I have become more involved in my school's campus and in the local community, thanks to NSCS. NSCS provides every student with amazing opportunities to grow as professionals and leaders in their community. The benefits of being a member stay with you beyond your college years. I strongly encourage any prospective students to join this organization.

NSCS is such an inspiring and helpful organisation. They offer a multitude of scholarships available for a wide variety of university students and alumni. They also provide readily-available resources to navigate both college life and professional futures. I am very proud to be an active member of this organisation and an officer of our UNLV Chapter!

During my first year at Youngstown State University, I was clueless as to which direction I needed to go in order to take control of my future or how I was planning to achieve each step. Luckily, I was accepted into The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, which helped me take control my college path, as well as my life. Without the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, which had offered me several scholarships and internship opportunities, I would had never been able to afford the textbooks necessary for me to get a proper education, realize what career is my true calling, or find such a large family of like-minded individuals.

NSCS has given me long-lasting leadership opportunities for my career success. When I first joined I was a college freshman and new member of NSCS. In my sophomore year I was the Secretary, and this coming year I'll be the Chapter President. NSCS has given me the space to grow as a college student and as a future career professional. I encourage anyone who is a member of NSCS to find leadership opportunities through officer positions and challenge your leadership and communications skills.

NSCS is a great organization for students to get involved in because there are tons of opportunities/benefits available including community service events, webinars and scholarships which can be completed at any level of commitment. While other student organizations can be a huge time commitment, NSCS is a society that is perfect for busy students because you get out of it as much as you're willing to put in!

Being inducted into NSCS has truly been one of my biggest accomplishments to date. As I prepared to enroll as a college student at the age of 24, I kept hearing and reading a lot of discouraging information. Many people say that if you don’t attend college directly after high school, you’ll struggle much more than the average student. Beginning my academic career as a full-time student and as a full-time employee was daunting, to say the least. Learning how to balance my time was a bit difficult at first, however I was still very committed to earning good grades. I received an email from NSCS less than a year later, recognizing me for all my hard work. Many of my friends are NSCS members and I am aware of all the opportunities this society will bring to students like myself. I am so very honored to have been chosen amongst so many great collegiate students. Thank you for the providing me with the motivation to excel!

I joined NSCS at my freshman year in City Colleges of Chicago, and I am proud to be a part of this honor society. NSCS has allowed me to meet other high achieving students who do not study the same major as me, that connects me with multiple diversities and background successful people around the country.
Also, I feel that NSCS is great organization that offers many opportunities for scholarships, and study abroad programs. Members can worry less about fiances, but could focus more on education. I have found that they have been reaching out well through emails for offering these excellent opportunities and benefits. Last but not least, NSCS has encouraged me to do best in my academic journey.
I suggest everyone should give it a chance to participate this great society.

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is a fantastic organization with like-minded students who are focused on their academic success and the success of their colleagues. The National Society of Collegiate Scholars offers exclusive opportunities to their membership that are not available through other avenues such as access to scholarships that are only offered to National Society of Collegiate Scholars members and a network of alumni who are willing to share their time, talent and direction to other aspiring leaders such as myself. I cannot say enough about the great things that the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and the great honor it is to be inducted into their organization. My membership is going to open a lot of doors and provide opportunities to me that would otherwise not be available. I am giving the National Society of Collegiate Scholars my full endorsement and I look forward to working with all of my new student colleagues now and in the future.

When I joined NSCS, I wasn't sure what to expect. I learned about growth experiences and the scholarship opportunities in the first meeting, but I was skeptical. Now that I have been a member for over a year, it is obvious that NSCS is an organization that is worth being a part of. I have learned leadership skills, met friends from all corners of my university, and have even been lucky enough to receive one of the scholarships. It's an amazing national organization to be a part of, and I am proud of my membership and involvement with my own chapter.

Overall, NCSC has amazing:
- people
- leadership opportunities
- role models within each chapter
- scholarship opportunities
- academic tips and support

I am a fairly new member of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, but I have seen some amazing things. Since I’ve been in this society I have received countless emails regarding help with resumes and also tons of scholarship opportunities. This has been such an amazing opportunity. Anyone who is granted the opportunity to join this society should take advantage of it. This society is like no other, they reach out to you asking to hear about your accomplishments and make you feel heard. They want to know what your fields of interest are. They truly do make you feel like they care for your success. Once you join you will be a lifelong member. I have not had the opportunity for my induction ceremony but I have seen videos of past ceremonies and they are very professional and it looks so rewarding to receive that recognition. I have been a member for less than a year and I’ve seen how this society differs from others. Not only do they help with resumes and scholarship opportunities but they want to hear about how the recent pandemic had affected you. They truly do care about your success and opinions. When they say they recognize all the hard work the members have put, they truly mean it. This society makes you feel good and makes you feel accomplished and proud of all the hard work you’ve done.This is a once in a lifetime experience and if you want to feel cared for and be recognized for your hard work then definitely join NSCS. Couldn’t be happier with how this society runs and how much effort they put into their members.

My story begins with my mother being a volunteer at St. Mark Community Center which serves our community and surrounding communities. The center is open on a daily basis even with the COVID-19 pandemic prevalent over the globe. The volunteers are especially loving and kind show others the compassionate of Jesus while serving their fellows neighbors. This nonprofit goes above and beyond in helping others who are facing difficulties at the time. This is done by not only giving out of food but also clothing, shelter, and networking with other agencies to make sure that an individual feels care for. These group of people to me are the heroes of today and the hope for tomorrow.

I appreciate the National Society of Collegiate Scholars so much! Being invited to be a part of this amazing program has taught me how hard work does pay off! Through my hard work, I am now able to have access to scholarships, study abroad trips, and tutoring, which are all provided by the NSCS. I have learned that when you are willing to put in effort and work to reach your goals, others will take notice and come along side you to help you fulfill those goals. The NSCS has come along side me and has helped me to find multiple outlets to pursue my dreams. I have taken advantage of the scholarship opportunities and applied to multiple awards, and am currently planning on studying abroad in the future. This is all thanks to the wonderful opportunities this amazing organization has to offer!

NSCS has changed my undergrad experience at GWU. I won a scholarship of $1000 my first semester and quickly became a leader within my chapter and within NSCS on their Leadership council. I have met a lot of accomplished authors and speakers including the creator of InternQueen and author of Get it together. These opportunities have shaped my life as well, as I met a ton of people at the conference last summer from other unis that I am still friends with today!

Getting involved as an officer is the best way to get the most from being part of the organization. I became the treasurer on my last year in college and it helped me get more involved in the organization and also learned to appreciate the work that goes behind every activity made for the members. I had some great experiences from doing community service and other college activities with NSCS. I got to meet many amazing people and friends thanks to it. There is also a good amount of opportunities to get a scholarship throughout the year and nice discounts for being part of it.

Joining The National Society of Collegiate Scholars was one of the best decisions I made during undergrad. I met tons of people that helped push me both academically and professionally. The NSCS offered so many resources to help me throughout my college career. They offered a ton of benefits from different companies helping me save money and offered a LOT of scholarships. I was even the lucky recipient of the Audible weekly scholarship from their "Motivational Mondays". Such an awesome group to be apart of.

I was highly effected by the pandemic. It hit as I was in the process of moving to an apartment off-campus, and all 3 of my roommates were laid off. I barely had enough money for rent, and didn't know how we were gonna afford groceries. NSCS gave my a $100 scholarship for COVID-19 relief, and my roommates and I bought a month's worth of food. I know $100 doesn't sound like a lot, but it was the difference between a full fridge and going hungry. I am beyond grateful for the opportunities NSCS has granted me and having my back however they can.

My name if Jennifer Rodriguez. I am a new member to NSCS at Texas A&M University! To me, NSCS is an opportunity to serve the university through selfless service and to obtain unique credentials. From the start, I have had the deep desire to become closely involved with NSCS at Texas A&M, so I decided the best way to do so is to become a leader. I am the Secretary of the NSCS chapter at Texas A&M University. I was recently appointed after being interviewed and can already tell how special this society of dedicated individuals truly is. I simply cannot wait to serve as the Secretary of NSCS at Texas A&M University this academic year!

What I gained most from attending my Induction Ceremony was exactly how many opportunities there are with this organization. When I first heard about National Society of Collegiate Scholars, I did not think I would be interested in joining. I did not feel that there would be that much for me to succeed with. I felt that this organization would not have that many things that I would be interested in or would like doing. Boy, was I so off. I did some more research on this organization and found out that it might actually be something I am interested and will actually enjoy very much. I attended the first general body meeting and felt excited and eager about all of the new, amazing opportunities. This made my excitement for the Induction Ceremony very immense, and I could not wait to attend it. I learned a lot from attending the Induction Ceremony. I gained even more knowledge about the different opportunities that this organization has to offer. The opportunity that stuck out to me the most from the Induction Ceremony was Outreach Love. My major is Elementary Education, so I am constantly working with children. Ever since I was old enough to volunteer, I have been doing that. I have tutored young children in various subjects like math, reading and writing, helped them with art, taught them songs and dances, helped them become more confident on stage, just be their friend, giving them advice and be someone to lend an ear to listen or a shoulder to cry on. This event would be a perfect fit for me. Not only is it flexible with every other Saturday, but it is rewarding too. I really enjoyed how at the Induction Ceremony they showed in depth videos of this event and everything they do, what they have to offer and what it stands for. The Induction Ceremony made me more excited for this upcoming year and all of the things the National Society of Collegiate Scholars has to offer, especially with Outreach Love. I am so excited to get involved and learn more about myself and working with children. There was more than one aspect of Induction that made me want to attend. The first reason I wanted to attend was to pick up the pin that I earned. I have been so excited to receive it and I was so happy to finally have it in person. I immediately sent pictures of me wearing it to my parents who could not make the Induction Ceremony, and I can not wait to wear it at graduation to show another milestone and organization I was able to take part in during my time here at the University of Central Florida. That aspect coincides with taking pictures. I was grateful I got dressed up nicely so I could take pictures of myself and my peers at the event to reminisce about this memorable event. I also wanted to attend the ceremony to meet other people in this organization. I did not really know anyone when attending meetings, I normally went by myself. Going to Induction helped me meet a ton of people with the same interests as me. Also, networking is so important and this organization is another great way to meet people. The last aspect that made me want to attend was knowing that I would leave with more information about this organization, how to stay involved, and how to help others. There are so many different activities and socials this organization holds that has something for everyone to do, and something that interests everyone. From attending the Induction Ceremony, I learned so much about Outreach Love alone. Many videos were displayed during Induction with actual volunteers, and actual children in the program. It was nice to see how this program is making a difference in these children’s lives, and that when I will start to volunteer, I know I can do the same with these children. Something more I would have liked to see was maybe some people who have graduated from UCF that were in this organization. I think it would have been cool if alumni from UCF and NSCS came to speak at the Induction Ceremony to give back, and speak about their time in this organization and how it made their college experience enjoyable. Also how it could have possibly changed their life for the better, and how. I was so lucky to be welcomed into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and so happy that I attended the induction ceremony.
