Student Council

Are you a college or university student who goes above and beyond to carry out the NSHSS mission of world betterment, academic excellence, and community service? NSHSS Student Council members embody these qualities. They are exemplary college and university students who are eager to share their experiences, advice, and tips and tricks with high school students to help usher them into the next phase of their academic pursuits.

NSHSS Student Council members come from all over the world and provide high school students with information on NSHSS programs, scholarships, and activities as well as advice on surviving freshman year and college life in general. Our Student Council members join for the leadership opportunities and the ability to mentor the next generation of NSHSS members.

Student Council members typically:

  • Give a tour of their college or university campus to incoming NSHSS students
  • Advise on new NSHSS programs and initiatives
  • Volunteer at NSHSS events
  • Share their experiences through social media takeovers or blog posts
  • Mentor and/or tutor other NSHSS members 
  • Give guidance and advice to incoming college students
  • Provide information about what it takes to be a successful college student
