You’ve probably heard the term thrown around a thousand times before: the idea of being a “well-rounded” student. People will tell you that colleges like to look at this type of up-and-coming high schooler, but did you know that being a well-rounded student can help you in other ways?
GoEnnounce explores this idea, offering 5 ways being a well-rounded student can impact your life outside of college admissions.
1. It improves your resume. Obviously the more well-rounded you are with activities like sports, drama, student council, Newspaper, etc., the more you will have to add to your resume. That doesn’t mean you have to participate in everything, but it will look great if you invest yourself in a couple different activities.
2. It helps you make friends. Joining a club or sport is a great way to meet people. Think about it—you may have not had the opportunity to meet certain people if you never got involved. Plus, you can bond with your newfound friends over your common interest.
