    omg College_Here_I_Come!, which school do you go to?
  • ToastyToasty Registered User Posts: 52 Junior Member
    Excluding sports and music...

    Art/Photography Club.
    Fashion Club. (lolololol.)
    Model UN.
    Red Cross Club.
    Speech/Debate Team.
    Some other community service club that may or may not exist this year.

    My school is where clubs go to die, and it's a huge magnet school.
  • College_Here_I_Come!College_Here_I_Come! Registered User Posts: 1,030 Senior Member
    Oh, I forgot the photography club above, and also the Step Team.

    Anyway, I go to a school with around 2000 students, which explains our vast number of clubs
  • vegangirlvegangirl Registered User Posts: 1,042 Senior Member
    all the schools around me have a ton of clubs, but mine has almost none because we're an arts school and I guess they figure most people are busy with shows/rehearsals/etc. I wish we had more though. Anyway, we've got:

    Gay-Straight Alliance
    Writing Club (literary magazine)
    Philosophy Club
    ACLU Club (might not be around this year, not sure)
    Coalition of Christian Artists
    Anime Club
  • AvariellaAvariella Registered User Posts: 88 Junior Member
    National Honor Society
    Key Club
    Several clubs focusing on a specific culture...
    Link Crew

    And 1-2 others that I can't think of right now.
    ...we have basically nothing. My school has about 1100 students.
  • Crash_BlairCrash_Blair Registered User Posts: 608 Member
    Yeah... I'm not even gonna try to list them all. My school has a lot more than any of the other schools mentioned so far though.
  • sciencenerdsciencenerd Registered User Posts: 1,568 Senior Member
    Does anyone have clubs that really do nothing? I think it would be unfair to put in on a college application. Also why don't colleges think much about Key club or NHS. I think they are pretty good. You have to put in like 20+ hours each year for those.
  • somebodynewsomebodynew Registered User Posts: 2,895 Senior Member
    I go to an all guys school with about 450 students.

    Excluding varsity sports:
    Arrupe Society (service club)
    Fencing Club
    Stage/Tech Crew
    Movie Club (used to be movie-making, now it's movie-watching)
    Politics Club (Young Republicans club merged with Young Democrats - they put out a political magazine once a month)
    Friendly Sons of Georgetown Prep (Irish Club - lol, they're unofficially known as the white student union, it's really a big joke of a club)
    Spanish Club
    Photography Club
    Oasis Club (rock bands)
    Ultimate Frisbee
    Black Student Union
    NHS - but they don't really do anything, justtutor the underclassmen boarders now and then, and help with open house

    I'm sure I've missed a bunch, but these are the ones that come to me off the top of my head.

    Oh yeah, we have an anime club too... but all they do is watch anime anyway, so it doesn't seem very... impressive. o_o
    Also why don't colleges think much about Key club or NHS. I think they are pretty good. You have to put in like 20+ hours each year for those.
    I don't know anything at all about key club, but the NHS at my school is a very flimsy thing. There are sporadic ten minute meetings scattered about the year, one special event a year, and that's the end. Not something that a college would care about. It certainly doesn't add up to 20 hours, and 20 hrs a YEAR is not a lot in the grand scheme of things. But if it's an actual, real-live, important club to you, you should probably work that into the app somewhere...

    NHS and Key Club are basically unregulated, so one school's NHS could have a lot of requirements while another's is basically a formality.

    Photography Club
    Mock Trial
