Chalk Talk: Extracurricular Activities and the College Application
An extracurricular activity is any activity in which the student takes part in. Colleges use these to help make the decision on the students that will fit in the best. Also in consideration is the amount of time and leadership skills did the student give to these activities. Each student will have an individual list of extracurricular activities based on the things they enjoy. It is not necessarily better to have a list of activities, instead the admission’s advisor usually looks for the way the student grew or developed their interest. If a student is not offered the type of club they would like to be part of, they can propose one to the school, which will also separate them from the other applicants.
