How to add a club you made to Common App?
Answered

I created a science-themed club for elementary schoolers in my community, and I'm not sure how to upload this activity to Common App. I am going to enter it under "Other Club/Activity," but what should I put under "Organization Name?" Should I enter it under "Science/Math" instead? I also created a website for it, but I'm not sure how to show that either. Please help :)

Hi!

You would list the name of your club as the "Organization Name" and your role would be "Founder & President". Use the description to show the impact of your club and briefly mention the website you created: "coded website posting x, y, z". Also, if this is your most impressive activity/ one you value most, you can elaborate on it in the 'additional information' section. There you would be plenty words to really get into the details of what you did, the impact your club had, why it needed a website etc. You could also provide a link to it. Something like "For reference, here's a link to my website: [link]".

Hope this helps!
