College Admissions 101: What are the best activities to include on my college application?

(upbeat music) – Some of the activities
that we do like to see could be associated with a
major that you’re applying into. So if you are into the STEM field, and you are part of a robotics club, or you’re doing STEM activities at school, that’s a great way to
indicate that you truly have a passion for that subject. If you have no
extra-curriculars associated with what you’re interested in studying, then we might wanna dig
deeper into your application to know why you would be a
good fit for that major at all. Maybe you write about it
in your essay or elsewhere, but activities is a
good place that we look to see your passion. Sometimes we’ll see students will say member of the senior class or
they’ll list just basic things that they’re doing in their academics that we expect them to already be doing, student in history class. We really wanna know what
your extra-curriculars are. What do you do once the
last bell of the day rings? (upbeat music)
