Volunteer Work - Good Facebook Photos

Community service and volunteer work have become an important part of applications to the country's most selective colleges. If you raise money for local charities, help out with Habitat for Humanity, take care of pets at the local shelter, or serve food at a soup kitchen, make sure colleges know about your involvement.

A photo of you racing for the cure or painting the local church can bring to life that list of activities on your application. This type of picture shows that you think about people other than yourself, a character trait that every college values.
