Not enough room on the Common App!

In the "Activities" section of the Common App, there isn't enough space for me to describe my extra-curriculars appropriately. What can I do to solve this?

    you could describe them in more depth in either the "additional info" section (gives you 2000 characters I think) or attach a resume at the end

    I uploaded a resume which presented my activities in a much more organized and easy-to-follow chronological format than what it lets you do in the activities section.
