What is National Student Day®?

Sponsored by the National Association of College Stores, National Student Day spotlights and celebrates students through events in campus stores across the U.S. and Canada. On October 8, 2015, get to your participating campus store and join the party!

Fifth annual event 10.8.15!

National Student Day seeks to celebrate you and reward you for your hard work! From local store events to the national contest, there's a variety of ways to join the celebration!

Your campus store is celebrating

On October 8, if you want to win $500 in the official National Student Day contest, your campus store is the place to be! Stores across the US and Canada will also be holding in-store celebrations thanking their students. Events may vary. Go discover the fun at your campus store.

Thank you for your interest

How to Get Involved


This day is about celebrating you. You could win $500 just by entering the new, National Student Day contest, which launches on Sept. 24. Your entry will also help national children’s literacy charity Reading Is Fundamental. Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  And on October 8, just show up to your participating campus store and join the party. 

College Stores

The approach is new, the contest is new, and there could be prizes in it for you! If the students who win the new national contest are from your school, you’ll also win a cash prize! And having a celebration is easier than ever. You won’t have to register or sign-in on the NSD website. Visit the NSD community in The Hub, NACS’ connected community for more details, including ideas and marketing materials. 

Business Partners

Become a sponsor and offer participating stores donations or discounts on popular merchandise. Promotional items can be co-branded with your logo alongside the National Student Day logo. Contact us to learn more.


NACS helps you organize and market your event!


The National Association of College Stores (NACS) is sponsoring the fifth annual National Student Day on 10.8.15 —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 October 8, but year-round.

How can you get involved?

It’s easier than ever to plan a fun event. No need to register. And your store could win $500 just by promoting the national contest! We’ve made it easy and fun for all students to “do good,” by partnering with a national literacy charity -- Reading is Fundamental.

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 2015 through the Hub's National Student Day Community.
