Chalk Talk: What Should Be on a College Resume?
A college resume is a very useful document for an admissions committee. A resume is, essentially, an overview of the student’s extracurricular activities. It is a single-page, single-spaced (though double-spacing between sections can be helpful) and should have a clean, easy-to-scan appearance. The applicant’s name and contact information, including address, email, and phone number, should be centered at the top along with the student’s grade point average. If the student has attended multiple schools, give the grade point average at each and identify the schools. The rest of the resume should be broken into a small number of sections, maybe four to six, which each contain similarly-themed activities. The important thing to remember when compiling these sections is impact. A good rule of thumb is that each item included in each section should demonstrate multiple qualities in the applicant. Participation in sports is great, but leadership, long-term dedication, and awards in sports are better, for example.
