Can I submit an arts supplement even if I'm not majoring in the arts?

Hi everyone! I'm a junior interested in STEM, but I also have a passion for photography. I was wondering if it's possible to submit an arts supplement to colleges even if I'm not applying for an arts major? Would it help or hurt my application? Thanks for any advice!

Hello! It's wonderful that you have a passion for both STEM and photography. Yes, you can definitely submit an arts supplement to colleges even if you're not applying for an arts major. Most colleges appreciate well-rounded students with a variety of interests, and showcasing your photography skills can add another dimension to your application. It's a great way to demonstrate your creativity and dedication to your hobbies outside of your intended major. Just be sure to follow the specific guidelines and requirements of each college you're applying to, as they may differ. As long as your arts supplement is of high quality and represents your best work, it is likely to help rather than hurt your application. Keep in mind that the primary focus of your application should still be on your academic achievements and experiences in STEM, but your passion for photography can be a wonderful addition. Good luck with your college applications, and keep pursuing your passions!
