Extracurricular Activities

What we look for in your extracurricular activities

We ask you to provide a list of extracurricular activities to get to know you better as an individual. We're not looking for students who have 400 activities.

Instead, we would rather see that you have been involved in a few activities, advanced in leadership and been committed to an activity/organization. Be sure to give us a sense of how much time you spend in your activities and highlight any leadership roles. Make sure to explain any activities you feel the committee may not know/understand. Though we know what it means to be an Eagle Scout, we may not know what it means to be a member of the STAR club at your school.

Take a look at our sample extracurricular resume below, and download the template for your own use as you apply to colleges.
