diversify your college activities

College life offers many opportunities for you to try new activities. You should try to take advantage of as many new endeavors as possible in order to broaden your horizons. Here are a few reasons why you should diversify your college activities.

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.

You can put these activities on your resume.

Employers want well-rounded individuals who are interested in growing and learning about new ideas. You should still definitely be involved in activities that pertain to your career path, but you should also be involved in maybe one or two other activities that show you can be a flexible and diverse employee.

For instance, even if you won't be dealing with the general public in your chosen career field, employers for that career will still want an employee with good communication skills. Drama club or debate team could help you gain confidence in that area.

You will have the chance to meet new people.

College is a melting pot of diverse cultures, lineages, and ideas. Being involved in different activities will allow you to meet a variety of people and learn about their different cultures and ideas. Use this opportunity to learn as much as you can while making new friends along the way.

You can build confidence.

By putting yourself out there and trying something new, you will help build your self-esteem. If you try something new and succeed, you will gain the confidence to keep trying new activities. Trying new things also helps you to grow and learn more about who you are and what you are capable of.

You can 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.
Diversifying your college activities will give you the chance to become a more well-rounded individual, but do not spread yourself too thin. Keeping a healthy balance between your health, school life, social life, and personal life is extremely important.

Find activities you are truly passionate about, but also push yourself and try an activity that is out of your comfort zone. College is a great place to take risks and dive more deeply into who you are to find your true interests and passions. You never know where life will take you!
