This study investigated the relationships between bullying victimization and students' extracurricular activity and misbehavior. This research examined whether students' engagement in particular school activities increased or decreased the likelihood of being bullied while at school. Data for this research were drawn from the Educational Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002) and utilized the base year's nationally represented stratified sample (N = 7,990). Associations were examined between various activities of 10th grade public school students-including classroom-related activities, club, interscholastic sports, intramural sports, and misbehavior-and their likelihood of being bullied while at school.
