How do I fill out the activity section for University of Illinois?
Hi, one of the schools that I am applying to is the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They don’t accept the common app, so I am applying through their specific application portal. Their activities section only has boxes for activity, position, years, weeks per year, and hours per week. There is no section that says describe this activity like in the common app. I was wondering if anyone else applying to UIUC knows whether they maybe want you to explain the activity under the “position” section. How do you think I should fill out the activities section?

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.
Hey, I'm also applying to UIUC. I don't actually think they want you to describe the activities that you're doing - when I filled it out I just literally wrote down my leadership role in each activity. I would use the major essay to describe the extracurriculars that are really important to you. It's definitely a weird application.
Best of luck to you!
