The National Society of Collegiate Scholars’ emblem embodies our mission. You can see it in the symbols (an open book with a torch rising from its pages, capped with three stars and surrounded by a laurel) and its colors (crimson and gold).
- The Book symbolizes the endless pursuit of knowledge.
- The Torch represents the ability of each of us to serve as a guiding light for others and of education to serve as a beacon, eradicating ignorance.
- The Stars manifest the three pillars upon which the society is built: scholarship, leadership, and service.
- The Laurel is an ancient symbol of distinction and serves to remind members that they are a part of a long and noble tradition of distinguished leaders.
- Crimson was used in heraldry to represent boldness and enthusiasm, both of which describe the confident and engaged NSCS member.
- Gold evokes the precious metal of the same name, representing the value our members bring to what they do.
