College Applications and Community Service. What's the Connection?

As the percentage of high school graduates who attend colleges and universities increases each year the competition for acceptance into these institutions also increases.  The time to begin distinguishing yourself from thousands of other applicants is now!  Why not include community service on your application?  Community service is an effective account of your dedication to life-long learning, improving yourself and that of the area in which you live.  It enhances your desirability as an applicant by - not passively - but ACTIVELY demonstrating your commitment to succeed.
