      What was the best part of the program?
      “ The best part of the program was definitely the weekend trips. ”

      How did you like your classes?
      “ I found the classes really engaging. We were able to hear a
      different voice and perspective than we do during the school
      year. Because it was the summer, the teachers created a relaxed
      environment, which gave me the opportunity to be more receptive
      to new ideas. ”

      Favorite activity?
      “ Hanging out at the dorm with the other students on the
      program. We also played ultimate Frisbee and football games
      organized by the RAs. ”

      What have you gained from this experience?
      “ Independence, knowledge and new friendships. ”

      What was the best part of the program?
      “ The best part of the program was meeting amazing people from
      all over the world. My rA was absolutely fantastic and she made
      us feel like a family on our hall. ”

      What have you gained from this experience?
      “ i have definitely learned how to be more independent and how
      to take responsibility for myself. i was initially really nervous and
      homesick at the start of the program, but ended up having an
      unbelievably wonderful time. i now know i will be prepared for life
      at college. ”

      Do you have any advice for students attending a
      Summerfuel program next year?
      “ Come with an open mind. My experience was great because i
      was open to meeting new people and trying new things. Step out
      of your comfort zone and you’ll have the best time of your life. ”

Parent/legal guardian Agreement
I have read the ASA brochure and hereby give permission for my child/ward to participate in the ASA program during the summer of 2011 at the location indicated on the application. By execution of the application
and this Agreement, I confirm my awareness and acknowledge the risks of injury which may be associated with travel, particularly in foreign countries. My child/ward is enthusiastic and prepared, and I believe he/
she is capable of handling both the emotional and physical aspects of the program as well as any risks involved. Furthermore, I agree that, should my child/ward’s conduct, at the sole discretion of ASA, be deemed
to be in violation of ASA rules or otherwise detrimental to the maintenance of standards or to the successful operation of ASA’s program, ASA, in its sole discretion, may dismiss him/her from the program. I further
agree that ASA shall have no further responsibility for my child/ward upon his/her dismissal from the program, and I understand that such dismissal may occur at a location far from the child/ward’s home. I affirm
that ASA shall have the exclusive authority to determine the manner and means of transporting my child/ward home without supervision, and that all additional expenses (including but not limited to the entire
costs of the transportation) shall be borne completely by me, and that ASA shall have no obligation to provide any refund of the tuition fee with respect to any dismissed student. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in
the event ASA elects to send my child/ward home with a supervising ASA representative, all expenses of such ASA representative (including but not limited to the entire costs of the transportation) shall be borne
completely by me. Prior to the commencement of the program, I shall sign a credit card authorization to be held by ASA authorizing the payment from my credit card of any such expenses of my child/ward and the
ASA representative in the event of the dismissal of my child/ward.
I have read the payment policy and refund schedule in the general information section of this brochure and agree to the terms cited. I understand and acknowledge that no refunds are available for any cause,
and that trip insurance is recommended. It is understood that ASA may make use of students’ photographs and testimony in publicity materials, including the brochure, poster and website, without payment of any
consideration, and I hereby grant ASA permission for such use.
Furthermore, in applying for an ASA program, I hereby understand and accept the following terms and conditions, the violation of which may result in my child/ward’s dismissal, without further notice: • The posses-
sion or use of drugs or alcohol is strictly prohibited. • All participants must adhere to all rules of safety and conduct at all times, including those promulgated by ASA, the educational institution and the jurisdiction
where the educational institution is located. • Any violation of the rules, terms or conditions, as well as behavior incompatible with the programs, could result in dismissal of a student at parent’/guardian’ expense
as stated above.
I authorize ASA, at its sole discretion, to place my child/ward at my own expense and without any further consent or advance notice in a hospital for medical services and treatment or, if no hospital is readily available,
to place my child/ward in the care of a licensed medical doctor for treatment. I hereby grant ASA full authority to take whatever actions it may reasonably consider to be warranted under the circumstances.
