We are thrilled to share that we have been recognized as 2017's Top Youth Travel Program by GoAbroad.com - a leading resource in travel programs around the globe. We couldn't have achieved this without YOUR support, and want to give a big thank you to everyone that voted for us! We look forward to offering more unique summer experiences in the years to come, and can't wait to make Summer 2018 another great one.
It is hard to believe that 2017 is coming to a close, but what a great year, and SUMMER, it was. From parasailing in France and learning to cook authentic Spanish meals in Conil, to creating our own social ventures in Washington D.C. and surfing in California, there was no shortage of excitement. Although we are always sad to say goodbye to the new friends we’ve made each summer, we have much to be grateful for and tons to look forward to in 2018.
Can you believe it is going to be TWENTY–EIGHTEEN?! We can’t. But we are super excited for a lot of great things happening this upcoming year. We can’t wait to get back to Oxford to study Shakespeare in its beautiful gardens, or return to Boston to hit the Six Flags roller coasters. Not only are we looking forward to some of our old favorites, but we are eager to enjoy a couple of fantastic NEW experiences, as well. We can’t wait to venture to exotic Costa Rica to give back to the local community, play soccer, and be immersed in the native culture. And before we know it, we will be in The Big Apple, touring art galleries and learning all about the business of art today.
We are so happy to be able to share these 2017 memories with our Summerfuel community, and are thrilled to make new ones with you in 2018. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2018!
Students had the opportunity to hear about the diverse college experiences of four Resident Advisors in a prompted Q&A session. RA’s discussed the whole spectrum of the college experience, from how to prepare for the application process to where students usually live as upperclassmen. Students posed many questions, such as how early to start your personal essay, how easy is it to switch a major, and what sort of qualities colleges look for in an applicant. At the end, RA’s shared the best piece of advice they could provide to the aspiring college students.
