ii. You could find a possible career path.
If you limit yourself to activities that you are already comfortable with, then you could miss out on a possible career path that you find truly exciting. By participating in an extracurricular activity that you have never considered before, you could end up having a whole new perspective on what you want to do with your life. So, if you are the type of student who is interested in art, why don’t you mix it up a little and try joining a science club? Only involved in math clubs? Try something new by writing for the school newspaper. You never know…you could find the career of your dreams.
Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you.
iv. You will expand your leadership skills.
Part of being a leader means being able to adapt to new ideas and experiences. Become involved in an activity that challenges you. A person who does not feel the thrill of challenge will not progress into being a leader.
Keep in mind that while you should diversify your college activities in order to be a well-rounded person, you shouldn’t spread yourself too thin. Don’t be involved in so many different activities that you don’t have time for your school work. Find a few activities that you are interested in and that pertain to your possible career path(s), and then find one or two activities where you can challenge yourself and be open to new possibilities.
