申请美国本科—什么被算作课外活动?

 

众所周知,申请美国本科,材料中有一项是课外活动。那么,在评审委员的眼中,到底什么是课外活动?其实,评审委员对课外活动的定义很广,基本就是“非高中课堂学习”和“非学校直接组织的活动”。美国评审委员会一般会把课外活动归类为:社区服务、志愿者服务、家族活动、和个人兴趣爱好。

以下清单是一个细分,供大家借鉴(可能会有重复)。

  • Arts: music, dance, painting, photography, creative writing and other creative endeavors.

艺术类:申请者在音乐、舞蹈、绘画、摄影、写作或者其他方面的天赋。(包括参加过的活动、比赛和奖项)
