College Planning Tasks for Sophomores and Freshman

Although college seems like a long way away, it really is only a few short years.  Below are a list of activities for you to do over the summer.  Starting early will make the college search process easier.

  • Check the graduation requirements of your school and make sure you have everything in place.
  • Review your extracurricular activities.  Is there anything new you want to try?
  • Begin to organize the items you’ll need for college applications.
  • Begin to research scholarships.  There are some you can apply for early in high school..
  • Start working on your resume. 
  • Keep track of your volunteer work.  Volunteer in areas that are of potential career interest to you.
  • When you’re on vacation, go on some college tours.
  • Go on college tours near you – see a large school, a medium school and a small school.  Write down what you like and don’t like about each.  Then look at an urban, suburban and a school in the country.  Write down what you like and don’t like about each.
  • Start looking into college majors and career choices.
