The term, "extracurricular activity," is usually thought of as the mere participation in a sport, after-school activity, or community service. This is actually an oversimplification. True and meaningful extracurricular activities are display of how you uniquely use your skills and talents to change the world around you. Your extracurricular activities are a manifestation of the intrinsic motivation you use to commit to a cause you find greater than yourself. Colleges want to know that their prospective students are purpose driven and have a track record of using their unique skillsets to create positive change.
