For high school students who haven’t participated much in extracurricular activities before their junior year of high school and are now worried about the lack of any college application highlights, don’t panic. You still have time to get involved in some activities to show your interest in clubs, programs, and causes.
Plan now and into your senior year to make the best of your activities. Make your greatest effort and become very involved in an activity where you can excel, according to My College Calendar. This is not the time for activity shopping; it is the time for focused involvement.
Find a balance between your class subjects and your extracurricular activities to make sure you’re not overworked or worn thin. Don’t choose ten activities to be partially involved with when you can pick two or three that you can immerse yourself in, according to Campus Explorer.
If you want to make a good impression with colleges, you might want to think about creating your own club and activity. In this manner, you can show leadership and management skills that will reflect favorably upon you in your applications.
Also, don’t forget those extracurricular activities you can find outside of high school. Volunteer work and church activities are always available to students who are willing to put in the work, so fully commit to the activity and get involved.
