ULM reinstalled the National Society of Collegiate Scholars this semester. The society asks freshmen and sophomores with at least a 3.4 GPA to join through the distribution of invitations.
If you are a student who is of a higher classification and want to join, you can fill out a form to nominate yourself. The online form can only be accessed by a current member of the organization.
The chapter president, Jameshia Below, wants to inspire the members of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars to get more involved in the community during her term. She also hopes to put the Planning to Achieve Collegiate Excellence program into motion. The PACE program is hosted by the national organization and is a public service event that is intended to help middle school students prepare for higher education.
“We are basically mentoring kids from local schools by tutoring them and helping them prepare for college,” said Ashley Boykin, a junior risk management insurance major from Shreveport and vice president of PACE.
Below is most looking forward to reestablishing NSCS on campus and making the chapter an involved one.
“Overall, I would just like to get the members more involved with the children community to help influence the incoming generation about how important education is and to show them that someone does care about their future,” said Below, who is a sophomore pre-pharmacy major from Natchitoches.
Other officers are excited to get the ball rolling on this recently revived organization as well.
“I hope NSCS will bring service and commitment to ULM and will be a prestigious organization to join,” said Lesley Engolia, a junior accounting major from Covington and NSCS secretary/treasurer, in an email.
