  • Live Speaker Broadcasts (offered six times/semester)

- On a bi-weekly basis we host a live speaker broadcast of a nationally known leader. These are held in conjunction with over 300 NSLS chapters across the nation. Past speakers have included Common, Rudy Giuliani, Blake Mycoskie, Hillary Duff and many others.

  • Success Networking Teams

- SNTs are an opportunity for you to network while accomplishing your goals. The Society places all students in a team of 8-10 students that wills serve as a network. The goal is to share goals with each other in the hopes of creating an encouraging, supporting and challenging team of peers.
