Abstract

The demographic variables are gender, year level, student type and type of extracurricular activities. This study employed a correlational method of research in gathering data. The survey was accomplished using a researcher made questionnaire to measure the impact of extra-curricular activities and an adapted and modified questionnaire was used to measure the level of involvement in extra-curricular activities. Both questionnaires were validated by the experts from De La Salle Health Sciences Institute. The respondents were second year, third year and fourth year radiologic technology students using simple random sampling technique. Percentage frequency distribution, mean, standard deviation, analysis of variance, the independent t-test and Spearman rho were used to answer the specific problem statement. Based from the findings of the study, the following conclusions are drawn: (1) students should balance their academic performance while they are involved in extra-curricular activities and learn to manage their time properly; 2) professors should encourage students to choose and join in different extra-curricular activities and monitor their involvement to ensure that the students are not neglecting their academics while affiliated to extra-curricular activities; 3) parents should support their child in developing their talents and skills. They should also give advice regarding the positive and negative effects of joining extra-curricular activities to balance positive impact on students’ academic, social and personal lives; 4) the student council should encourage the students to get involved in extra-curricular activities. They should also improve their information dissemination to the students about the different activities in the college.
