Our Mission: Honoring and inspiring academic excellence and engaged citizenship for a lifetime.
The Symbols of the Society:
The symbol of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars is an open book, with a torch rising from its pages, capped with three stars and surrounded by a laurel.
The Book symbolizes the endless pursuit of knowledge.
The Torch represents the ability of each of us to serve as a guiding light for others and of education to serve as a beacon, eradicating ignorance.
The Stars manifest the three pillars upon which the society is built: scholarship, leadership and service.
The Laurel is an ancient symbol of distinction and serves to remind our members that they are a part of a long and noble tradition of distinguished leaders.
