NSCS Induction Ceremony Held on October 14


On Tuesday, October 14, 2014 the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) held their first induction ceremony on the 11the floor of Houston Cole Library. There were 73 members inducted to the newly chartered chapter at JSU. NSCS is not the average honors organization, but it recognizes students' academic achievement and provide opportunities for members to develop leadership skills. Members positively impact their campuses and communities by participating in service activities as they prepare for future endeavors like internships, graduate school, and careers. NSCS members seek to make valuable connections with fellow high-achieving students who are plugged into NSCS and JSU, which can make their college experience a more rewarding experience. First- and second-year students who have a GPA of 3.4 or higher are invited to membership. This puts students in the top 20% of students nationally. There is an initiation fee to join the organization. During the ceremony, Distinguished Members are recognized and honored. Distinguished Members are chosen based on their success in working with first- and second-year students, for making a difference in their community and
contributing to the well being of their university and community.This honorary membership is a formal recognition for members' outstanding contributions. For more information about NSCS, please visit their website
