Hey there! It's great that you're thinking ahead and planning a productive summer before your senior year. There are quite a few activities and programs you can consider to strengthen your college applications. Firstly, volunteering is always a great option; you could find local non-profits or community organizations to help out. It shows your commitment to giving back and helps you develop valuable skills. Another option is to find an internship or part-time job in a field you're interested in. This will give you hands-on experience, make connections, and demonstrate your work ethic. You could also consider taking a summer course or participating in a pre-college program at a local university. This will show your dedication to academic growth and help you explore potential majors. Lastly, don't forget to take some time to relax and recharge – having a well-balanced summer is essential. Good luck, and I hope you have a fantastic summer!
