Teaneck, NJ (April 20, 2012) — A new chapter of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars, a national nonprofit honor society inviting high-achieving first-and second-year students, has been established on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus.


NSCS is the only interdisciplinary honor society that recognizes freshmen and sophomores for their academic accomplishments and provides them with an opportunity to network with other successful students, benefit from NSCS campus-based and national opportunities, apply for more than $250,000 annually, and engage actively on campus and in the community.


Membership is open to students with a minimum GPA of 3.4 and who are in the top 20 percent of their class. NSCS has chapters in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.


FDU’s NSCS chapter will join the more than 300 NSCS chapters across the nation, including Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University and the UCLA.


“The new chapter at Fairleigh Dickinson is a way for high-achieving students to be recognized for their accomplishments and to benefit from increased opportunities and resources,” said Catherine Provost, Manager of Chapter Development. “We’re looking forward to making this year the first of many successful, engaging, and exciting years for the chapter.”


The advisor for the Fairleigh Dickinson University chapter is Assistant Provost of the Metropolitan Campus, S. Craig Mourton.
