s NS np WEEKEND, 2007 Clemson hosted 31 top high school students and their families from 13 states Feb. 16 to 18 to compete for the NSP and to learn about the university, academic programs and involvement opportunities. National Scholars Program Spring 2007 864.656.6160 // Toll Free: 1.866.850.9413 // www.clemson.edu/national_scholars SCHOLAR STORIES Left: Participants discuss ideas about developing on-campus programs for scholars. Below: Advisors from several programs chat during a coffee break. NSP hosts inaugural professional meeting Thanks to the support of President James F. Barker and Provost Dori Helms, Clemson and the National Scholars Program hosted the first-ever meeting of college scholars and scholarships program administrators, June 6 to 7, 2007. The meeting, held at the Madren Center at Clemson, brought together faculty and staff who administer the programs and scholarships responsible for bringing top students to their campuses. Topics discussed at the summer meeting included devising successful recruiting and selection processes and developing meaningful programs for scholars in the programs, both on and off campus. Additionally, the group made plans for a 2008 meeting, to be held at NC State, as well as developing a more formal professional association. More than two dozen profes- sionals from 18 programs attended, representing Duke, East Tennessee State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, NC State, UNC-Chapel Hill, USC, UT-Dallas, Vanderbilt, and William & Mary.

Record number of Scholars win top awards Nearly half of the National Scholars received a record three dozen campus awards and national recognitions this Spring.

Above: Mark Boerckel performs a magic trick during the opening night icebreakers, cutting a student in half with rope (she was later reconstituted). These achievements include national finalists for major fellowships, five of 12 spots in the Order of the Blue Ridge, and eight Scholars inducted into the inaugural chapter of Clemson's Phi Beta Kappa.
