Extracurricular activities refer to those activities that a student chooses to engage in, outside of required curriculum or coursework in school. Extracurricular activities may include sports, volunteering, participation in school clubs or other organizations, participation in clubs or other community organizations unaffiliated with the student’s attending school, such as non-profits, youth and faith organizations. Extracurricular involvement by students is coveted by colleges, universities and other post-secondary institutions, as students who participate in activities outside of school are considered to be more well-rounded, with the ability to balance school work and other responsibilities. Extracurricular activities are a great way for students to explore activities related to careers of interest and a great way to add activities to their resumes.
Students who are involved in extracurricular activities learn how to prioritize their time, meet friends and get to enjoy activities they like. These things help students to stand out on their postsecondary and employment applications.
