Suitable extracurriculars for a prospective Environmental Science major?

So I'm set on majoring in Environmental Science and I’ve heard good things about Salve Regina's program. What extracurriculars should I be focusing on to strengthen my application to programs like theirs?

It's great to hear about your interest in Environmental Science and your consideration for Salve Regina's program! For this particular field, you’ll want to engage in extracurricular activities that showcase your passion and dedication to environmental issues. Consider involving yourself in clubs like the Environmental Club at your school, if one exists. If your school doesn't have one, showing initiative by starting an environmental club or organizing a local clean-up can make a strong impact. Furthermore, look for internships or volunteer opportunities with local conservation groups, community gardens, or environmental charities. Participation in science fairs with a focus on environmental research can also highlight your interest in the subject matter. These activities demonstrate a proactive approach and a strong commitment to your intended field of study. Remember, colleges are looking for depth over breadth in your activities, so it’s more valuable to be highly involved in a few related activities than to have a long list of unrelated ones. Good luck with your application!
