What can I do if I don't have any extracurriculars?

Hi everyone! I'm a junior, and I'm worried because I don't have many extracurricular activities to list on my college applications. What can I do to make up for this? Are there any activities I can get involved in now that would still look good on my applications? Thanks for your help!

Hi there! Don't worry, there's still time to get involved in some activities that can make a positive impact on your applications. First, think about what you're passionate about or what interests you. Colleges like to see genuine interests and commitment to activities, so choose something that you'll enjoy and be dedicated to. Some suggestions could be joining a club at your school, volunteering in your local community, participating in a sport, or even taking up a hobby like playing a musical instrument or painting. If you're not sure what's available at your school, ask your teachers or guidance counselor for advice. Another option is to look for summer programs or internships in your field of interest. These can showcase your commitment to learning and growth outside of the classroom. Remember, it's not always about having a long list of activities but rather demonstrating your dedication and growth in the activities you do choose. So pick something you're passionate about and give it your all. Best of luck!
