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.

I was afraid and timid throughout my search for colleges, but I finally found the college that was fit for me and luckily I got accepted. One of the most influential things that helped me was the articles and advice on CollegeXpress. They've helped me a lot and benefited me as a senior to make the right choices in life. Thank you!



High School Class of 2023

I’m currently a college freshman attending Towson University. My major is Information Technology, and I plan to minor in Electronic Media & Film to achieve my goal of becoming a production engineer. Upon graduating high school earlier this year, I was awarded a $5,000 scholarship from CollegeXpress, which greatly assisted in paying my tuition. Truthfully, this financial reward was the difference in affording my room and board and tuition, along with other expenses for school. My family and I haven’t stopped celebrating my award since it was bestowed on me. I will never forget this opportunity for allowing me to get my foot into my university financially.

CollegeXpress helped me on my journey to get to the school of my first choice by showing me all the options I have. I didn’t know of the College of Southern Nevada until I went on this website, and it helped me look for other choices and compare what colleges would be right for me.
