Dear Friends,

Over the past sixteen years, NSCS has worked to promote the values of scholarship, leadership and service through our university chapters and nationally. NSCS makes every effort to ensure that all members realize their full potential as scholars, leaders and service-oriented individuals by creating and advancing programs that recognize and elevate them. An invitation to NSCS is not only a reflection of a student’s dedication to academic excellence, but also an opportunity to join a network of high achievers aiming to incorporate the principles of scholarship, leadership and service into their everyday lives and beyond. In 2010, NSCS expanded from 242 chapters to more than 271 across the country and welcomed 69,667 new members to the Society. We also broadened our commitment to first and second year students by including community college charters. We awarded a quarter of a million dollars to our members in scholarships covering a variety of costs from tuition expenses to assistance with study abroad programs. NSCS remained committed to empowering our members with new programs and opportunities such as the newly introduced NSCS Highway to Success: Route 66 Tour, while strengthening existing programs such as Planning to Achieve Collegiate Excellence (PACE).

These past sixteen years resulted in the creation of numerous opportunities for NSCS members to build leadership skills, connect with prospective employers, apply for internships, study abroad, and recieve discounts via our partnerships. From the beginning, our members have been our number one priority and will continue to be our main focus as we develop new and exciting ways to engage students and help them achieve their goals. I am excited for the future of NSCS and proud of our evolution as an honor society. I look forward to continuing to fulfill our mission of recognizing and elevating high achievers and enhancing our members’ experience as we move forward in 2011! Sincerely,

Stephen E. Loflin, CEO & Founder 3 | The National Society of Collegiate Scholars Annual Report 2010

Academic Success One of the most important ways NSCS rewards our members’ academic success is through our scholarship programs. We awarded more than $250,000 in scholarship dollars during the 2009-2010 academic year. Scholarships reach all facets of student life from study abroad awards to scholarships for integrity and service.


Scholarship is one of NSCS’ core values. To recognize and celebrate the academic achievements of our members and to defray the costs of education, NSCS offers more than a quarter of a millions dollars in scholarships every year. The Merit Award is a $1,000 scholarship awarded to 52 new members each year. The recipients are chosen based on their ability to inspire academic excellence and engaged citizenship in their communities.

Service Service is an integral part of the NSCS experience. The Planning to Achieve Collegiate Excellence (PACE) initiative continues to be one of the most successful service programs implemented by NSCS. Youth-oriented literacy and education programs have been the focus of our service programs. In addition to the PACE initiative, chapters are encouraged to plan their own service events. In 2010, chapters held events ranging from fundraisers and food drives to discussion boards and marathons.


PACE The Planning to Achieve Collegiate Excellence (PACE) program, previously known as Planning for College Success (PFCS)

A 2010 survey of the top 25 NSCS PACE programs shows that those NSCS chapters alone have reached more than 950 students, who attended a PACE assembly. These students learned how to fill out a college application, apply for financial aid and scholarships, and create a resume, among many other opportunities. Our chapters have reached out to over 2,100 students through mentoring programs. With well-established relationship, planning, communication and dedication from NSCS members, PACE is making a difference in communities all over the country and helping young adults prepare for a brighter future. March to College is one of the fastest growing initiatives of the PACE program. Chapters hosted events that brought over 800 students to a single campus. With patience, detailed planning, communication and dedication from NSCS members, we are making the March to College Day experience for those 800 students a day that inspires them to further their academic careers.

Chapter Highlights: University of Central Florida (UCF) PACE Assembly The Assembly program at the University of Central Florida has been well established. They have worked with Outreach Love, a local area after school program, for over 4 years now. This incredible program reaches 20 students at each assembly and creates a unique opportunity for both NSCS members and the students of Outreach Love. NSCS members are allowed to speak on whatever subject they feel passionate about and talk about the path they took to get to college. This allows for a more personal touch to the assemblies. “I feel that we had a positive impact on the kids. For these kids college seems like a far off idea and it is important to instill a goal to attend college at a young age with them…” says Ashley Lindsey, Vice President of PACE at UCF. Uniquely, UCF offers an opportunity for those students who are unable to make the off campus event to still participate. “Even members who could not attend the event were able to be involved. At a meeting prior to the event everyone wrote why they loved UCF, which was read to the kids.”

Virginia Tech PACE March to College Virginia Tech has a fantastic March to College Day program which has been in place for over 7 years. “This event is rewarding and one of the biggest events for the Virginia Tech Chapter” says NSCS member Jessica Gandhi. “This year, I was able to work closely with Carolyn, the VP of PACE, to make this experience memorable for the over 220 students attending from local middle schools”. In working with middle school students from Auburn Middle School and Christiansburg Middle School, NSCS members give students a glimpse into life beyond high school graduation.

First, the students took a tour of the famous “Lane Stadium” and Cassel Coliseum that houses the Virginia Tech Hokies Football and Basketball teams. Then they were able to experience campus food at D2, a buffet restaurant on campus. Virginia Tech has some of the best campus dining in the country. Lastly, they saw a Chemistry Magic Show, performed by a Chemistry professor. Throughout the day, students are surrounded by NSCS members and discussing their futures in education. The 220+ students were introduced to all aspects of student life both verbally and physically, which gave them a better understanding of what happens during college. “This event provides students with ideas of the future and understanding that they can do anything. We try to encourage the students by actions rather than just talking to them,” Gandhi says. Time management, planning and dedication are what make the Virginia Tech March to College Day a continued success each and every year.

Integrity Integrity refers to honesty in all personal, professional and academic endeavors. Integrity matters because it’s at the foundation of any successful community. Without integrity, a leader cannot engender trust. Without integrity, academic accomplishments are meaningless. Without integrity, service to one’s community is hollow. That’s why we consider it the foundation of our pillars of Scholarship, Leadership and Service. These are words we strive to live and encourage in our members each day. To convey this message we encourage members to participate in I Stand for Integrity Day and to apply or nominate their professors for two special integrity scholarships.

I Stand for Integrity Week Each year during the second week of February, NSCS recognizes integrity during I Stand for Integrity Week to commemorate this important value among our members.

I Stand for Integrity Week was held at campuses across the nation. NSCS chapters were busy holding integrity events including banner signing table events, speakers, panel discussions and other creative ideas to bring the NSCS value of integrity to their campuses.

Ever wonder what it takes to make a successful Integrity Week? Just ask the officers at Northeastern University, who used their daily events to spark the campus’s interest in The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, while using innovative ideas to keep current members active. “One theme we really wanted to drive home with Integrity Week was the ability to do something you enjoyed while also benefitting someone else,” said Emily Palmeri, the Northeastern University chapter secretary. That theme stuck with the chapter throughout the entire week. Kicking off their multi-event week with an activity called Upcycle Notebook Making, the chapter – along with an organization called ExCL - used recycled goods to create notebooks. The goal of the event was to have users create one notebook for personal use and another for a less fortunate individual. The chapter also used their first event to promote the rest of the week by handing out “Get Some” integrity shirts. 24 | The National Society of Collegiate Scholars Annual Report 2010

nscs.org


The next activity of the week was an integrity fashion show. The show started at 7:30 p.m. in the Curry Student Center Ballroom. Models began by strutting down the runway in Northeastern gear. Afterward, there was a throwback section where Northeastern chapter Vice President of PACE Allison Ailor wore a Hello Kitty outfit. During the show’s intermission, audience members were asked to sign the banner to pledge integrity. The show ended with models clad in outfits of their choice for the People Choice Award, with the winner receiving a $50 gift card to Express. The next morning, volunteers made Valentine’s Day cards for friends, family and residents of the Pine Street Inn, a homeless shelter for women. Over 130 cards were made, and nearly 100 t-shirts were given away.

“Dr. Hunt made an immediate impression on me. Whether it was through the type of words he used, the tone of his words, or by the sincerity of his body language, I could tell that he truly cared about not only the academic success of each student in the classroom, but the lifelong success of each student.” – Lance Gooch
