Why are extracurricular activities important?

Posted on Jul 01, 2016

Engagement outside of the classroom is an important aspect of the college application process. While the universities’ first points of focus are grades and academic strength, extracurricular activities allow you to distinguish yourself from other applicants and reinforce your skills and interests.

You can showcase traits that grades alone are not able to demonstrate. For example, what are you passionate about? Are you a leader? What you do after school hours, during weekends and over holidays relays a message about you to the university admissions team – not only about what interests you, but your growth and commitment to the activity.
