Extracurricular Activites

Hi I graduate spring 2025 and Im looking to beef up my college applications with some

extra curriculars. Currently I volunteer at my local humane society, am a class rep for theater club and have helped plan homecoming for 3 years. I need any help so please leave me some asap.

Something simple that you can do is take Coursera courses: coursera.org/ -- they are free. You receive a certificate for each class that you take, and you can do them on your own time.

In addition to the fact that you can list the courses as an extracurricular, if you take courses that relate to what you plan on majoring in, you can also use them as an explanation for why you chose your major.

What kind of major do you wanna pursue? Make sure the internships you do align with it it gives you a bigger boost to college. However some colleges just want to make sure you’re doing in school are going to pass their classes and will make a change so focus a lot on school like gpa

Are internships big in order to go to a big time college?

Yeah and no it all depends on your city and environment because sometimes internships are far but if you’re able to try and find one remote or even nearby during the summer even one makes you stand out from the rest of your high school
