What is your opinion on extracurricular activities? should they be made mandatory? Throughout my entire High School years, extracurricular activities have been heavily emphasized. In fact, we are by graduation requirements to complete 75 hours of community service. Now don't get me wrong, I would love to help my community. What gets me mad is that the school board does not put themselves in the students shoes. I was responsible daily to come home and take care of my little sister, this left me very little time. Colleges now a days look like crazy for this though, they consider this to be a representation of the students social activity which also include clubs. Where you involved in this activities as a child? Do you believe they had an impact on your future? Do you believe academics should be separated from this when colleges and other institutions admit certain students?
