About us

SHRM@NSU is the student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management at Nicholls State University.  SHRM@NSU is closely associated with Bayou SHRM, and it promotes mutually beneficial interaction between students and HR practitioners. Membership offers students the opportunity to supplement their classroom education with real-world knowledge and hands-on experience. We have regular meetings, usually bi-weekly, with scheduled programs designed to help members learn more about HR and the real world of business, and to network with one another and with HR professionals. These activities allow members to learn more about human resource management while building relationships with local professionals and other students and, of course, having fun!  SHRM@NSU usually meets every other week. The meeting day and time change each semester to best fit members’ schedules. Generally, food is served in our meetings.

What We Do

SHRM@NSU participates in activities such as hosting HR guest speakers, attending local and state HR conferences, attending Bayou SHRM meetings, attending state regional case competitions, raising funds for charities such as the Thibodaux Christmas Toy Drive, and other activities based on members’ interests, such as the following:

Hahnville High School Orientation: SHRM@NSU hosted a presentation for 20 Hahnville High School juniors and seniors interested in a Business career. In the event, we talked about how to not only update your resume and application, but also how to give the best first impression possible. They learned how to give proper handshakes and how to stand tall and proud!  We think that it was a great presentation, and we want to thank all of the students and staff members at Hahnville High School for the arrangements made.

NSU Student Orientation: This year SHRM@NSU played a very active role during New Student Orientation. We set up a table adjacent to the College of Business booth. We talked to the new students about our organization and what we do. Our officers were very creative this year and implemented a wonderful idea – a photo booth!! The new students that visited our table had the opportunity of their photos taken, with our officers, or their friends, all dressed up in their choice of funny masks, hats, etc, supplied by us. The photo booth was an instant hit, and we saw a large number of visitors.
