Mariam Webster’s Dictionary defines extracurricular activity as, ‘an educational or productive activity not falling within the scope of the regular curriculum.’ In other words, these activities are ones that a student engages in that do not pertain to their education directly. However, extracurricular activities are important endeavors to include oneself into in order better one’s productivity and well-being. While these activities do not directly impact the integrity of one’s education, they can certainly be used to improve the overall well-being of an individual, thus improving their overall educational experience.
Extracurricular activities are numerous and vary significantly in type. Activities such as, playing a musical instrument, joining a social club, or playing a sport are all forms in which a student can engage in extracurricular activities. Regardless of which avenue chosen, extracurricular activities are healthy commitments for a student to pursue actively.
