"Continue" in Activity Section
Hello! I'm currently filling out the common app and am having some trouble deciding which activities to say that I will "continue" in college. I really enjoy almost all of my activities and would like to find some way to move forward with parts of each thing, btu I'm not sure what qualifies as continuing. For example, I run a club for silly debates (think cats vs. dogs, is cereal a soup) and while I want to keep having silly debates, I don't want to run that club in college. Same wiht a club I'm in where we talk about Scientific journals. Same with my social justice work. I also run cross country, and though I will not be on the official college team I do plan on running with a club or just a running group. I'm not just going to stop doing those things in college, but I won't be part of the same organizations/groups. How will it be interpreted if I put "continue" for each of those and for others? Is there a way to show that I'm interested in continuing the type of activity even if the same (or a parallel) group/organization/club doesn't exist in college?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
If you select that you want to continue the activity, you do not have to be part of the same organization or group. It just means that you want to do something similar in college. This just shows college what types of things your interested in doing at their campus. Also, you do not have to continue doing this activity even if you select that you will. At most, colleges just use this information to give your name to some groups at their school. As long as you want to do something similar in college, I would just select continue.
