    Hmmm... I was in the Smoking and Ditching Club. We met every morning in the parking lot. I didn't want to have ANYTHING to do with school my teenage years. The only school sponsored things I participated in were social. I did very well in college, though.

    I grew up out in the country, we didn't have a lot of choices either.

    I was in Colorguard (both for the school and a separate competition team-I still twirl things like umbrellas out of habit :p). I played softball in jv, yearbook, debate for one year (my teacher thought it would bring me out of my shell) and a community service club I can't remember the name of it. It feels like that was sooooo long ago. ;)

    It's funny to look at what schools stuff is considered clubs and other have them as classes.
    I did yearbook and wrote for the school paper, but it was a class (I guess an elective).
    I was in Choir, but it was a class.
    I was in National Honors Society as well....

    I went to a very small school where everyone did everything. I was in:

    Volleyball
    Basketball
    Track
    Cheerleader
    Speech
    Play Production
    NHS (officer)
    StuCo (officer)
    FFA (officer)
    Youth Leadership
    Band
    Choir
    Annual
    Spanish Club

    That's all I can think of right now. I'm not kidding when I say everything. I did all of those things all 4 years.

    My high school, 9-12 has about 80 students. In a good year.
