NSCS is an ACHS-certified, nonprofit honors organization that recognizes high-achieving undergraduates and provides career and graduate school connections, leadership and service opportunities and gives more than a million dollars in scholarships, awards and chapter funding each year. The Gold Star designation is awarded to chapters that exemplify the NSCS’s dedication to scholarship, leadership and service.

To be a member, students must attain a 3.4 grade point average and be in the top 20 percent of their class. Additionally, the chapter members engage in service projects like canned food drives and charity walks like the Human Race Walk.

The next UNCG NSCS induction ceremony will be Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. in the Elliott University Center Auditorium.
