In the short time that I've had access to the NatStuCo Adviser Resource Center, I've been highly impressed and can't wait to use all the resources to better our student council.
It was a great first year! I’m happy to be part of such an amazing community.
I have worked really hard to have structured meetings. Advise magazine and the NatStuCo E-Bulletin have been very helpful.
