Organization name on commomapp activites section
I tutor middle school students in my school district as part of a club. The club is called "Link". So I was wondering if I should list this name of the club as the organization name, even though it is unique to my school and no one will be able to tell that it is a tutoring club based on the name. Should I just say that I tutor middle schoolers and leave the name blank or should I still include it?

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.
I would include the name because it highlights how the tutoring is an organized thing. However, you should definitely make sure the reviewer knows that it's a tutoring club.
I'd recommend either:
(a) making the organization name "Link Tutoring Club" (or something similar) or
(b) describing what you do for the club (i.e. tutoring) in the position/leadership description section.
The former is, in my opinion, probably better as it leaves you space in the leadership description to go more in-depth regarding your role with the club
Good luck with your applications!
Of course, you should keep the name. I think the Organization name is required on Common App. So you may not really have a choice, my friend. But even if you did? Still keep it. Because it presents this activity as legitimate. Tells your AO: This is not fluff.
You can put it like, "Link District Tutoring" but I think this sounds unwieldy.
Link is a great name in its monosyllabism; keeping that is advisable.
So between your position/title and description, you should be able to inform us that it is a tutoring activity.
