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.

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.

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.

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.

NSCS is a great organization that helps build leadership and personal growth not only during the undergraduate years but also as an alum. I've been a member of NSCS for four years and I have been able to help my community while embracing the organization's mission. It has also help build the foundations for leadership roles not only in the organization but also at the national level and with many of its partners. The organization constantly remains active with its members and makes sure to engage them in every possible way. NSCS provides amazing opportunities to grow not only personally but also professionally. It also encourages to get involved in the community and staying active; service is a great part of the organization and one of my favorites.

This is a fantastic honor society that has far exceeded my expectations. I joined just wanting to get involved on campus and to have an honor society on my resume, but I have done far more than just that over my last two years of involvement. NSCS is a great place to meet people that aren't in your own college, to learn new leadership skills and participate in your community through service projects. NSCS is an outstanding organization where being good is never enough, they are always striving to better the society.

I cannot say enough about how amazing this organization is! I have been involved with NSCS since the second semester of my freshman year in college. At the first meeting I ever attended, I ran for the Secretary/Treasurer position and won! The next year, I served my chapter as the Chapter President, and this year, I have the honor of being one of eight in the country to represent NSCS through my service on the National Leadership Council (NLC). Through serving on the NLC, i am a part of an advisory board that works to engage members and better the NSCS experience of all members in the United States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. This organization has truly changed my life by shaping me into the leader I now am. I have volunteered countless hours, planned events to help better my community, and learned important life skills through my experience of being an officer and member of NSCS. I feel better prepared to serve as a leader in my community and command my own classroom upon graduation through my involvement with this incredible, life-changing organization.

As a college student, NSCS has honestly changed my life. NSCS is an honors organization for high-achieving first and second year college students. I was invited to join as a freshman and quickly got involved. I was able to serve my chapter as Vice President and President, and currently serve on the NSCS National Leadership Council. Few organizations on a college campus are able to engage their members and offer real benefits. NSCS, however, does just that. Through member scholarships, volunteer programs, internship opportunities, and travel opportunities, NSCS has the ability to enhance the life of all honor students, during college and beyond as alumni. The organization really cares about their members and providing them with the best experience possible. NSCS is a fantastic organization and I give it my highest recommendation!
