Extras that Make All the Difference
Do colleges look at extracurricular activities? Some do, some don’t.  If a college looks beyond the numbers, they are truly seeking to understand who the student is as a person, what makes them passionate, and what they would bring to a campus. Let’s talk about some concrete ways to build a resume that will communicate who you are. This session would be most beneficial for current Freshmen and Sophomores.
