Studies support education as a factor of life satisfaction; a means of measures towards education is academic achievement. Few studies have examined academic achievement, co-curricular activities and self-concept in a university setting. The purpose of this study was to describe the patterns of self-concept, co-curricular activities, and academic achievement at Southern Adventist University. The sample of convenience used in this study consisted of 31 students. Participants were given the Co-Curricular Activity Involvement and Self-Perception Scale, which measured academic achievement, co-curricular involvement, and self-concept. The results of this study reflect those findings found in previous research; however none of the findings were statistically significant.

Keywords: extracurricular activities, co-curricular activism self-concept, self-esteem. Academic achievement, and academic attainment.
