Does choir count as an extracurricular activity?

Hi all! I've been singing in my school's choir for a couple of years now, and I was wondering if it can be considered as an extracurricular activity while applying to college? Thanks for your help!

Hello! Yes, choir certainly counts as an extracurricular activity when applying to college. Colleges value a student's involvement in the performing arts and look for well-rounded and engaged individuals. Participation in choir demonstrates your commitment, passion for music, and ability to work as a team member.

When listing your activities on your college application, make sure to mention any leadership roles, special performances or competitions you've been a part of, and the length of time you've been involved in choir. This will help colleges to understand your level of commitment and the impact you've made in that activity.

For more information on extracurricular activities and how to make them stand out on your application, I recommend checking out the following CollegeVine blog post: How to Make Your Extracurriculars Stand Out on Your College Applications.

Best of luck with your college applications!
