SXU student group receives national honor

SXU chapter of National Society of Collegiate receives Bronze STAR status

Chicago (Sept. 24, 2010) Saint Xavier University's chapter of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars was awarded Bronze STAR Status at the 2010 NSCS Leadership Summit. 

The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is the nation’s only interdisciplinary honors organization to invite first- and second-year college students. NSCS has more than 750,000 members and more than 270 chapters.

STAR status is determined by chapter program success, community service, member engagement and on-campus involvement. The Bronze STAR award was given to only 40 other chapters this year. 

SXU members worked diligently 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 the Society's integrity initiative.
