Help me classify an extracurricular
Answered

I was nominated by a teacher to be on the Student Curriculum Council at my school, which is a group of students who provide the Assistant Heads of School with direct feedback about our academic experience, with the goal of providing the best possible experience for all students. Student Curriculum Council is a two-year commitment, with quarterly meetings. I provide honest insights, positive ideas, and constructive criticism that will be discussed at the Faculty/Teacher Curriculum Council. Between meetings, we are encouraged to interact with other students and seek different experiences to compare and discuss issues that we have recognized. There are about 20 members; only 5 of us are senior representatives.

This isn't an ASB position even though we are very involved in student life and I want to add it to my list of extracurriculars. But it isn't quite a club, because I was chosen for a spot in the club. Should I ask the moderator what to categorize it as? Is it worth adding to my application? If you need more information to make a conclusion, I can try to answer your questions.

I would classify this under Student Government because you are a Student Council, just not a an ASB student council.

ACTIVTY NAME: Student Curriculum Council

CATAGORY: STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Tier 3b: Strong

I did the equivalent of ANY of the following:

I was a member of Student Council

If you are the President or Director of the Board, then it would be a 2C.

I agree with @CameronBameron's response here! Though not officially ASB, this definitely seems like a student government role. More important than the activity and category are the descriptions.

You'll want to write a thorough description of your commitment to the activity and any leadership and responsibilities you had.

Hope this helps!

Yes, definitely list it. Listing any school-based ECs is recommended, but even more so when you are in a leadership position. I'd list it as student government, and then give it a more detailed description as to what it entails. Good luck, hope this helps.
