What should students write for "organization name" if they have self driven activities entered onto the Common App?
I am a senior in high school. I was filling out the "Activities" section on the common app and thought of this while filling out the application. For example: if someone did something on their own/ with someone else that is not associated with an organization or it is not an organization that they created, then what should they put? Also if you do something for a community outside of your own, will that fall under the "community service" category?

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.
The Organization Name is not a compulsory criteria that you have to fill. It is perfectly acceptable to leave that space blank. Regarding community service, it usually refers to volunteer work done in order to benefit people who are disadvantaged, in any sense. Thus, a fundraiser for an old age home or teaching people in an orphanage could be examples of community service.
