I have served as my school's NSCS Chapter President for 2 years now, and I have since grown immensely as a leader, a student, and an actively engaged member of my community. Acting as a representative for an organization of this caliber has helped me improve the way I communicate and interact with others. I am a proud recipient of our chapter's Outstanding Scholar Award for 2017-2018, and I am grateful for the many opportunities that NSCS brings to its members. This unique network of scholars, educators, school administrators, and professionals has taught me lessons about leadership that I will carry with me after I finish my experience in college.

The Indiana University chapter of NSCS has been one of the most worthwhile organizations I have joined in my collegiate career. I am honored to have been been a part of this prestigious organization for the past three years and am thrilled to serve as IU's NSCS Chapter President this coming school year.

I am very happy I decided to join NSCS. Not only have I been able to connect with other motivated students who share a similar goal of success and service, but I have been able to positively effect my community as Vice President of Community Service. The scholarships offered and the connections that can be made make NSCS an honors society everyone should join if given the chance. I am looking forward to what the next year has to offer.

This organization has been so amazing to me. I haven’t even been it for a full year but it has given me so many opportunities at the University of Florida. I have been offered opportunities for different scholarships, been able to meet many like-minded leaders etc. But I have been able to grow by gaining an officer position this upcoming year in which will continue my growth as a leader and person.

This organization has become a valuable component to my life. Throughout the course of my collegiate career, I have been given the opportunity to network with so many incredibly creative students and staff members. I thank NSCS for being a safe space for in-state and out-of-state students to get connected with other like minded individuals.

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars is one of the biggest blessings of my life. I am the incoming Vice President of my local chapter at Lone Star College-University Park, and I have been so impressed by the society. I’m so excited to fulfill my position this fall and I’m ready to take advantage of all of the good experiences and resources that they offer. When I first was getting emails asking me to join NSCS I was on the fence because I was already in the Honors college at the Tomball branch. However when I really did my research I immediately applied and got into the program. Stripping away all the great experiences and people, this looks really good on student CVs and they offer ridiculous scholorships which may be just enough to help us graduate almost dept-free. If you are looking to help students and your community through a charity, this is the one to which you should donate. Thank you!

NSCS is a society of students who are willing to contribute to their field of education and learn more. NSCS is fantastic oppurtunity to get to know students of same major from different states and share study tips and tricks. In a gist, this society is a great oppurtunity to explore and educate.

NSCS has helped me network with other students from different departments who are excelling in their area of study. It's a community that serves to not only support high achievers but also recognize them for their hard work and motivate them to take their skills to the next level. I am excited for my upcoming role as Social Media Chair in the pursuit of upholding the prestigious image of the Spelman College Chapter of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

This is a time in my life where I know I can look back on and smile. I loved meeting some of the nicest people and getting together to discuss what we can do as an organization to help our campus out. NSCS wants the best for its members. I am glad that I am a part of this, something that allows me to have many opportunities. I can't wait to see what is next.

I have been a member of NSCS since my sophomore year at Georgia State University. I joined the E-board as VP of Public Relations during spring semester of my junior year. Since becoming a member and joining the board of members, I've become accustomed to meeting new people and making newfound friendships. Throughout the semesters, we encourage each other because we know how difficult it is to manage many tasks and maintain the GPA of a scholar. NSCS definitely provides a platform for scholars like me to achieve life and educational goals, while inspiring others in a positive way. As a proud NSCS board member, I intend to lead with integrity and exemplify outstanding academic excellence, leadership, and service achievements.

Being an NSCS member has really helped me push myself to do better and take on the experiences that I otherwise wouldn't have gotten.

So far, one of the most impactful experiences has been volunteering for PACE, a program that's a part of NSCS. At my chapter (Ferris State University), PACE is a program where we act as mentors for some of the "more troubled" middle school students. I think this is such an important program since it allows us to show them the benefits of higher education, doing better in school, and it lets us help them think about what they want to do in the future.

Currently, I just became the VP of Community Service for my chapter and I look forward to working with my e-board and fellow NSCS members. Going forward as an NSCS member, I hope I can grow even more, encourage fellow members to improve themselves, get others involved in more volunteer opportunities, be more active in PACE, and get more mentors for PACE (they always need more). Having NSCS's support and resources behind our chapter helps me plan for this and will help me succeed in reaching these goals.
