  • Throughout the semester our chapter is regularly working with several outside organizations in order to improve the Rutgers community.

    Here are some of the projects and community service events that we participate in:

    - RAH FOOD DRIVE -
    In collaboration with Rutgers Against Hunger we are conduction a food drive throughout the semester where you can donate canned goods at our meetings and events. Members will receive 1 point for every 4 cans donated . A maximum of 4 points may be accumulated by participating in this program.

    - PACE -
    Planning to Achieve Collegiate Excellence sets a goal to bring middle school and high school students to visit Rutgers in the hopes that one day they will go to college and uncover their potential for success. One of the activities that we do with PACE is a walking tour of a campus and a bus tour of the entire university. Participation in the program entails that you maintain a weekly contact with the student you wish to mentor and visit his or her school as one of the activities. You can earn 1 point/hour of your involvement. If you would like to contribute to PACE, please contact Alexander Leone at lexleo@eden.rutgers.edu.

    - IFP -
    International Friendship Program is a program that allows international students engage in one-on-one conversations with their American peers. The meetings are set-up based on time available by both parties and there is a minimum commitment requirement of 1 hour per week (1 point is awarded for each hour). Topic selection is up to the participants involved and activities can range from lunch to movies to attending sporting events. It is recommended that at least 2 hours per week are completed to give each student an hour a week of language practice.

    To get started, please submit an IFP Host Application form.
    For more information, please contact Jordan Levy at jordlevy@eden.rutgers.edu.

  • Our society maintains a point system where members receive points for attending meetings and special events, and for taking the time to do community service. Members also receive points for wearing their NSCS t-shirts (available at the Induction Ceremony) to general meetings.

    Every event has a different point value that is determined prior to each event. The more points a member earns during a semester, the better is his or her eligibility of receiving scholarships and awards at the end of the year.

    Please keep in mind that members also need to accumulate at least 5 points per semester to be in good standing with the society.
