Member Quotes:
  • "What I most enjoyed about the program was the open encouragement offered by fellow-members, the NSLS advisors, and speakers, in support of my goals. Prior to NSLS, I often felt alone in regards to my aspirations and along my road to success. However, amazingly, with NSLS, I no longer felt that my goals were too lofty, because NSLS actually encourages lofty goals and provided the support and an easier road to reach them"
  • "My most positive experiences with the society were getting to know other students on campus, getting feedback from them and giving them feedback. Being able to hear different speakers was interesting as well. Every experience was a positive one with the society."
