TWU honor society chapter receives Gold STAR Award


DENTON — The Texas Woman’s University chapter of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) recently received the honors organization’s Gold STAR Award.

The NSCS is an honors program for freshman and sophomore college students, with more than 300 student-run chapters at universities across the country. The TWU chapter of the organization was founded in 2002.

Criteria for Gold STAR status include holding an induction ceremony for new members, creating a student mentoring program, holding campus-wide events to support NSCS’ integrity initiative, creating an on-campus membership recruitment campaign and engaging a campus office in a chapter event. NSCS chapters can attain one of four status levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Each level is determined based on the quantity and quality of events a chapter held the previous year.

“The members of Texas Woman’s University’s chapter are amazing,” said Sherice Evans, the NSCS national staff representative who works with TWU’s chapter officers. “They have gone above and beyond by creating innovative programs and expanding and improving existing programs, and have provided an exceptional experience for their members. They truly have embraced the ideals of NSCS.”

The NSCS is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Membership is by invitation only, to freshman and sophomore college students to rank in the top 20 percent of their class. For more information on NSCS, visit
