Non-academic activities? (slightly paranoid stupid question)

Officer positions in honor societies (particularly those with distinctly non-academic dimensions, like service and leadership, etc.) are definitely considered "non-academic" activities, yes? I'd imagine positions in major-specific honor societies should qualify too, so long as there's additional "doing" involved (not just GPA/classroom performance).

Hm...actually, I consider any position related to your school to be considered "academic activities". So an officer in an honor society would fit my definition of an academic activity. Let's see what others think.
