NACS helps you organize and market your event


The National Association of College Stores (NACS) is sponsoring the sixth annual National Student Day on 10.13.16 —a day dedicated to celebrating students!

What is National Student Day?

National Student Day is a day to celebrate your students, giving you multiple opportunities to create and build a positive relationship with them. We encourage stores across the U.S. and Canada to tell students how much you appreciate and value them, not just on 10.13.16, but year-round.

How can you get involved?

It is easier than ever to get involved and plan a fun event. Host a selfie station and promote the national contest, if one of the 25 randomly selected winning selfies is taken in your store, you’ll also win a $100 cash prize. We’ve made it easy and fun for all students to “do good” by partnering with Scholarship America.

Assistance from NACS

Best of all, NACS helps you organize and market the event by giving you access to a free online marketing toolkit, available summer 2016 through the Hub's National Student Day Community.
