The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) Chapter at Cal State San Bernardino earned Star Status for the 2019-20 academic year.

Even with the unexpected events of 2019-20, CSUSB’s chapter had a great year. That is largely a result of a veteran leadership team who kept the chapter active and involved in the community,” said David Marshall, CSUSB’s NSCS chapter advisor, director of the Honors Program and professor of English. “I’m proud of what the officers accomplished in their time and, even though I was sad to see them go, am proud to have watched them graduate.”

According to a letter by executive director of NSCS Scott Mobley, the achievement of Star Status is coveted among more than 300 chapters throughout the country. All Star Chapters were leaders in implementing engaging, student-centered events on their campus and in their local community, creating meaningful experiences for their members.

“The chapter is committed to the ideals that NSCS holds dear. The Chapter Advisor, Dr. David Marshall, NSCS officers, members, and the entire community should take pride in the chapter’s accomplishments,” Mobley said in the letter. “Their exceptional work is not only a credit to them as a chapter, but as students at California State University, San Bernardino, as well.”

NSCS is certified by the Association of College Honor Societies and is a nonprofit honors organization that recognizes and elevates high-achieving undergraduates who excel academically during their first and second year of college. NSCS provides career and graduate school connections, leadership and service opportunities and gives out more than a million dollars in scholarships, awards and chapter funds per year.
