Colleges are looking if you are doing something that you are passionate about and not just an activity that would look good on your application. Not only are they looking to see if you are doing something you are passionate about, they are also looking to see if you are going above and beyond. For example, if you are interested in coding, you can do something to show your skills like building an app or start a workshop helping other learn how to code. Think outside of the box and have fun doing anything you think it is worth awhile to you! Hope this helps!
