Self-Reported Experiences are meant to provide institutions with a way to collect information from students on things that they do outside of the classroom that aren't already being tracked in CollegiateLink (which is typically used for managing organizations and events). These experiences can include anything from honors and awards received, to employment or internships held, to off-campus memberships and event participation.

Here are some example Experience Type configurations that you may wish to use in your CollegiateLink system.
