Hi there! It's great that you're thinking ahead and planning for a productive summer. There are several things you can do to enhance your college application. First, consider taking on an internship or part-time job related to your field of interest. This will not only give you hands-on experience but also show colleges your passion and commitment to that field. Second, volunteering is another fantastic way to demonstrate your dedication to a cause and showcase your leadership skills. Look for local organizations or community projects where you can make a difference. Third, explore opportunities for summer classes or workshops, either online or in-person, to challenge yourself academically and learn something new. Lastly, consider working on personal projects or hobbies that you're passionate about. This could be anything from starting a blog or YouTube channel to creating a small business or art portfolio. Colleges love to see students who pursue their passions and take initiative. Whatever you choose to do, make sure it's something you enjoy and can be proud of when you talk about it in your application. Good luck and have a fantastic summer!
