UofM Chapter of National Society of Collegiate Scholars Earns Star Status

August 18, 2020 - The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) Chapter at the University of Memphis has earned Star Status for the 2019-20 academic year.

Certified by the Association of College Honor Societies, NSCS is a nonprofit honors organization that recognizes and elevates high-achieving undergraduates who excel academically during their first and second years of college. With its three pillars of scholarship, leadership and service, NSCS provides career and graduate school connections, leadership and service opportunities, and distributes more than a million dollars in scholarships, awards and chapter funds annually.  

The award came as students were dealing with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am especially impressed with the chapter officers’ collective perseverance in the face of such an unprecedented challenge,” said Carlos Bolton, faculty member in the Department of English and campus advisor for NSCS.

Star Chapters are leaders in implementing engaging student-centered events on their campus and in their local community, creating meaningful experiences for their members.
