Kaplan University’s chapter of the National Society of
Collegiate Scholars (NSCS), an honor society for high-achieving college
students, maintained its gold star status at the organization’s 2014 national
convention ScholarCon in Orlando, Florida.
To maintain this honor, an online chapter of NSCS must
complete a number of society criteria, such as service projects, leadership
training, webinars, and other activities that engage their community. The
chapter must also sponsor orientations for potential members and select
multiple student leaders to govern the university’s chapter of the honor
Kaplan University instructors Dr. Ellen Manning and Dr.
Russell Fail serve as organization advisors for the chapter. Dr. Manning
was awarded a scholarship from the national chapter of NSCS to attend
ScholarCon 2014. She has been an advisor of the organization for 3 years,
but this was the first year she was able to attend the national convention.
When asked about her experience at the conference, she states, “it was an
uplifting and exciting conference to attend.”
ScholarCon is an unconventional convention providing 4 days of high-profile speakers, engaging sponsors, and interactive opportunities.
Also representing Kaplan University’s NSCS chapter was Tallulah Bowser, VP, Public Relations. Dr. Manning stated, “she did
a fabulous job of representing our chapter, with an open smile and joyful

While in attendance, both Dr. Manning and Tallulah were able
to connect and establish relationships with many members of the national
chapter and other attendees. There were 60 universities represented at the
conference. A highlight in 2014 was John Legend’s performance and inspirational
presentation. Dr. Manning stated, “he was one of the best speakers we ever

officers and many members to attend next year.” Tallulah is planning to present
about the conference for the members who were not able to attend this y ear’s
conference. She stated, “this trip was just what I needed and a true learning
experience and I wouldn't change a thing.”
The Kaplan University chapter of NSCS currently has 1,720
active student members. It has been shared from the national office that
Kaplan University has the largest chapter of their 333 chapters. NSCS is open to first and
second year college students who hold a 3.4 cumulative grade point average or
