Berkeley College celebrated the induction of its third cohort of students into the New York and New Jersey chapters of the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) during a ceremony held at the Brownstone in Paterson, NJ, on August 16, 2017.

 

According to the organization, the NSLS is the nation’s largest leadership honor society. Students are selected by their colleges for membership based on either academic standing or leadership potential. Candidacy is a nationally recognized achievement of honorable distinction. The organization hosts live-streamed speaker events, allowing members to hear from and interact with national leaders, celebrities and best-selling authors such as Arianna Huffington, Carly Fiorina and Rudy Giuliani.

 

During the ceremony, 91 students were inducted into the Berkeley College New Jersey chapter, and 120 students were welcomed into the Berkeley College New York chapter. Four previously inducted members from each chapter were also recognized for receiving National Engaged Leadership Awards from the NSLS.
