Should I put community service/clubs/etc. that aren't necessarily in my career path on my college application?

I plan on studying pharamceutical sciences and anything related. I am in a few clubs and organizations that will give me experience and show that I am dedicated to my decision. However, I'm also in other clubs/organizations that are more or less recreational and have little to nothing to do with pharmacy. Would it be wise to include these in my college application? #college #college-admissions #college-advice #college-application

Hello Gabriela:

YES, by all means list your clubs, volunteerism, community service, travel abroad (educational & mission trips), etc. on your college application. This shows that you are a well rounded student and actively gets involved. When my two young adults were in college they listed "everything" (as mentioned above). Colleges are interested in seeing what you do extra; so make it count.

Good Luck to You!

For sure! Colleges love to see that you are a well-rounded individual who gives time to many different activities. Furthermore, any and especially volunteer work is a great way to show your worth to a college.

Hi Gabriela! I definitely would! Although you are interested in the pharmaceutical field it is also good to be well-rounded and take part in other clubs or organizations that interest you! The only thing is make sure to show you are committed and have spent time on these clubs and the events than just doing a bunch of things but only for a short time.

Best of luck!
