Involvement in extracurricular activities not only helps you enjoy your school experience now, it can help you get admitted to or earn a scholarship to the college of your choice. When you apply to college or apply for a scholarship usually more than just your grades are taken into account. Colleges are also interested in what you have done outside the classroom because this helps give them a better sense of who you are and what you can contribute to their campus community.
