Why Activities, Skills and Involvement Matter

You are more than a transcript and a test score. We know that. What you’ve learned in high school, and throughout your life, may not be recorded in your academic records alone. That’s why the application offers opportunities for your to list your activities, skills, organizations, work experiences, and community involvement. 

The skills you develop by taking leadership in extracurricular activities, working, and volunteering in your community are valuable preparation for college. In your application, you will have an opportunity to tell us about your involvement; you can start thinking now about how you describe your activities. 

Please stay involved! The teamwork, leadership, time management, and work ethic displayed in your involvement may be an important part of your application.
