Growing up Caitlin also loved arts and crafts (still does) and something she intentionally did to reveal schools this interest was through volunteering.
Another extracurricular example
My daughter Caitlin loved to play soccer (and still does). She was on a club soccer team during her teenage years and was on her school team.
Because she loves the sport she played soccer. Because she wanted the money she was a referee.
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about…
There’s no one right answer to the question that is extracurricular. A project, A job, an internship, volunteer work, it is all good.
While she was looking at colleges, she had a whole lot of Division III coaches interested in her and she landed at Juniata College where she was a starter on the team every season except the year she spent at the University of Barcelona.
Here was my reply:
She volunteered at an assisted living center where she collected up photos from the facility’s events and designed scrapbooks. The bulletin boards were decorated by her. And she created a window box for an elderly resident who wanted to exhibit the mementos from his late wife’s nursing career that began during World War II.
I was wondering what your opinion is about what my daughter should concentrate on doing the summer before senior year. I’ve heard some say that it was important on a college program.
