MENUMENU

9 – Activities List

Counselors encourage every student to prepare an Activities List (Resume) that will become part of the College Application or Scholarship Packet. A “sharp” looking activities list really can add to the application. Below you will find 3 samples that were used by former students. Counselors encourage you to adapt one of these 3 Activities Lists to your own needs or create a unique one for yourself.
