Creighton Chapter of Collegiate Scholars Recognized Nationally

The Creighton University chapter of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) was awarded Bronze STAR Status at NSCS’ 2010 Leadership Summit.

NSCS is an honors organization for high-achieving freshmen and sophomores with more than 240 student-run chapters at universities across the country.

STAR status is determined by chapter program success, community service, member engagement and on-campus involvement. Chapters are also required to hold an induction ceremony for new members each term.

NSCS chapters can attain one of four STAR award levels bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each level is determined based on the quantity and quality of events a chapter holds throughout the year.

Members work during the year to execute and improve long-standing NSCS programs such as PACE (Planning to Achieve Collegiate Excellence), a mentoring program for middle and high school students and I Stand for Integrity Week, a week dedicated to supporting NSCS’ integrity initiative.
