As a Soquel High School student, getting involved can mean joining a club, participating in student activities, or doing community service. Being involved in community service and extracurricular activities can help with college admissions by providing a well-rounded resume. Extracurricular activities can also help with scholarships, figuring out a future career, or networking.  Find a good balance between classes and extracurricular activities, and remember to never sacrifice good grades for an overly-busy schedule.
