Clubs at USJ offer students the special opportunity to enrich their time in high school by allowing them to get involved in extracurricular activities and community service projects, both of which are highly valued to college admissions teams. These clubs provide students with the opportunity to become passionate about several causes, and the community service projects each club is required to organize allow for students to become seriously involved. Because of this, it is suggested that students take the time to look through the information about the clubs provided in this packet to get a general idea of what clubs they are interested in joining before they rush to sign up for every club. It is advised that students only join clubs they are passionate about and willing to work for so that when it comes time to apply to colleges these clubs and the student’s contributions to said clubs can show where the student’s passions lie.
