When applying to most colleges or Universities, the applications require grades, and participation in school and community events. If your participation is in the school or community, most schools require you to have been in the group or activity for more than one year so that they know that you are able to continue with doing things and are able to stick to completing things. If you skip around with different activities, then they may think that you aren't responsible enough or that you just aren't certain still about what you want to major in when you start college.
