Students who are under prospect of entering college are often plagued by so many questions for their college entrance interview. One of these questions involves the assessment for the student’s chosen extracurricular activity. Most of the times, candidates are torn between as to answer truthfully or provide ‘the right answers’ in order to be successfully admitted to their dream university.
So how should one answer rightly? There is only one answer to this. Simply answer truthfully. There’s no better way than to provide facts. Remember that the admissions officer is actually assessing you as an individual.
If you are in for college, try to ponder on these following points for your extracurricular activity:
- Do your research of the list of extracurricular activities in the college or university you are going to attend. If your activity does not reflect on the list, why don’t you make suggestions? Show you initiative by being a founder or co-founder of what you want to do.
- Extracurricular involvement does not need to be numerous. It would be best if you will follow the ‘quality over quantity’ method. Be involved in at least one or two clubs or societies within your campus. This way, you can focus your performance and attention to these activities.
- Do your very best in every given opportunity. Your performance will reflect how passionate you are in your chosen field. Show your dedication, creativity, leadership and zeal. Be really involved in your club.
- Reach out to people who might have the same talent, hobby or passion as you have. Remember, your legacy should not only end with your graduation.
