Past Events

9/26/2007 NSCS Induction

This year, 114 new members from the MIT Chapter joined NSCS. At the induction ceremony, we had Dean Hasting (Dean of Undergraduate Education) as the keynote speaker and Lauren Fox as the NSCS Scholar Ambassador. Several representatives from the community service center were also present. Awards were given to outstanding members from NSCS, as well as distinguished members from the community.

10/2/2007 General Body Meeting

This was our first General Body meeting of the semester. In addition to promoting NSCS with a pizza party, our Chapter Adviser Heather Trickett (Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator at the PSC) also talked about community services to help members get farmiliar with opportunities around MIT campus.

10/25/2007 Cold Stone Study Break with Community Services

This was our first study break of the semester to promote NSCS on campus and get freshman and sophomores interested in accepting their invitations to NSCS. While the students enjoyed Cold Stone Ice Cream, we put on a community service event: making Halloween Themed Activity Books for the Boston Children's Hospital. Frequently when kids go in to have surgery or other operations, they get bored waiting around. We made booklets of puzzles, coloring sheets, and then decorated the covers of these books.  

12/10/2007 Cold Stone Study Break

This was our last study break of the semester. We invited all NSCS members, and served Coldstone Ice Cream. We publicized this event heavily to underclassmen, specifically freshman and sophomores. This is because we wanted to get some name recognition for NSCS on campus so that when letters go out in the Spring, they know what our organization is all about.
