Video: Get Involved: Unique Clubs to Join in School

High schools have so many clubs and organizations these days. See which ones student vlogger Isabella has joined to get ideas for your interests!

Your high school likely offers more clubs and organizations to join than you might think. You’d be surprised by the range of clubs for students—there’s something for practically every hobby! Join student vlogger Isabella as she shares the clubs she joined at school and explore your interests with her. You might get an idea for a new club you want to join from this video. You may even get some inspiration for clubs to join when you’re off to college.

Setting club priorities

When you’re thinking about what you want to participate in for activities, it’s smart to set some priorities for yourself to meet certain goals. Isabella’s priorities when choosing how to spend her time and which activities to join include:

  • Having enough activities to keep her consistently busy,
  • Participating in activities that truly interest her,
  • And taking on clubs that boost her college résumé.

These are all good considerations for your own priorities as well but don't worry if your focus and goals lie elsewhere. And if you're pursuing college activities, they'll still look good on a job application one day.

When I started looking at colleges in the beginning of my senior year, I was conflicted about which ones I wanted to attend based on safety, tuition costs, location, academic rigor, and prestige. Searching the internet and getting more questions than answers, I came across CollegeXpress, which made all the steps I had taken look like a minor issue. Everything was summarized and detailed, and I couldn't be more thankful and appreciative.

It's an honor for me to be writing to share a little about my experience with CollegeXpress. I've been using CollegeXpress for about a year now, and the reason why I chose it is because it provides astonishing scholarships for every student around the globe. Besides that, this organization dispenses all the information necessary to help students get to college. CollegeXpress has helped me have an easier experience with applying to colleges and choosing the best fit for myself.

Toward the beginning of last year, I was searching for scholarships to apply to through my school, town, websites online, and anything else I could find. I asked tons of questions [online] about scholarships and the best places to find them because I was desperate and needed as many as I could find. I came across a ton of bogus websites, but as soon as I found CollegeXpress, I knew I had to tell other people about it. It was definitely the most helpful site I came across, so I told my friends about it. CollegeXpress is definitely a website worth giving as a source.
