Does participating in choir count as an extracurricular activity?

Hi everyone! I've been involved in my school's choir for the past three years and thoroughly enjoy it. I'm a bit unsure if colleges consider choir as an extracurricular activity. Can anyone provide some clarification on this? Thank you!

Hello! Absolutely, participating in choir is definitely considered an extracurricular activity. In fact, it's a great one to have on your college application because it demonstrates your passion for music and your commitment over the past three years. Colleges appreciate students who are involved in various types of activities, such as music, sports, volunteering, etc.

Not only does choir showcase your talents, but it can also highlight key qualities like teamwork, dedication, and leadership (especially if you've held a position like section leader). I suggest mentioning any significant performances or competitions your choir has participated in to further emphasize your involvement.

Wishing you the best of luck in your college admissions journey!
