I wish this was a boarding school or something… I would go into eternal debt to stay forever. One word? (or two…) life-changing!I loved it and it ended too soon.It was amazing! I would do it again and again. A well spent summer.I would say that AGS changed my life, but not in the way I thought it would. I didn’t have this big epiphany about my existence; instead, I was taught to care and to love. That’s deep.I had a blast! Much better than being at home doing chores. I would do this every summer if I could.This has been one of the greatest, most unique experiences of my life.Overall, Governor’s School challenged me to question the world around me in a constructive and positive way. It showed me that life isn’t as linear as I thought.I wish I could do this for school; these people, these teachers, these classes, forever!A fantastic one.I thoroughly enjoyed my time at AGS.For me personally it was an immense challenge and not an easy one to get through but one that I am glad to have had.It has helped me so; it was great.It was one of the best experiences.I’d give it an 8.5 out of 10.I really enjoyed AGS even though at times it could be a little too strict considering it is supposed to be a taste of college life.Probably one of the best experiences of my life.

She loves me back. Finally overcame the challenges.5,000/10 Eye opening.Words can’t really describe it other than that it was an informative and interesting experience you can’t get anywhere else.AMAZING. It wasn’t exactly the most academic, but I feel like I gained a lot socially. It allowed me to experience college in a certain way, and forced me to think outside of the box.

I’d give it a seven. The activities and classes were great, but the dorm life/homework was stressed and overwhelming. However, I am glad I chose to come.Wonderful. Simply wonderful! I will never forget this experience, and truthfully, I don’t want to leave!An amazing, fantastic, once-in-a-lifetime experience that I am FOREVER grateful for and will never forget.I think my overall experience at AGS was fantastic and is going to be a lasting memory I will treasure.It was fantastic!It was good.

It was fun and exciting and I would love to do it again. 20/10 Is that allowed as a score? AGS has allowed me to grow, flourish and be comfortable with myself.A++++++! AGS has been amazing!I’m not going home…I’m leaving home…The most valuable six weeks of my life so far.I enjoyed myself despite not wanting to attend.An amazing experience filled with self-growth. I have no regrets in coming here.Best six weeks of my life.It was the best time of my life. Before AGS, I was like AGS will be fun, but not life changing. Now, it’s like AGS isn’t this one event that happens, but a series of life changing friendships, classes, and so on.Cool, uniqueMy overall experience was fantastic. I’m really glad that I signed up. I wish it didn’t have to end so soon.I loved AGS and would definitely do it all again.

It went by so quickly.My experience at AGS was amazing. There were so many opportunities and I learned a lot.Due to me being African American I felt very very awkward many times throughout the program but on a scale of 1-100, 90%.Scale of one to ten? 100! AGS is the greatest thing that I have ever been a part of. I will carry it with me for the rest of my life.It was one of the best, most helpful experiences of my entire life.It was amazing and very much a great experience.It has been a life changing experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better summer.This is the best camp/school I’ve ever been to. I wish my regular school was like this. It will be hard to go back, but it has been a blast.It is made for white culture. I enjoyed meeting new people, but I felt like there just wasn’t an environment for me.Great. Will recommend to everyone, although I would have appreciated the option to go to ZaZa’s or Panara. We are on the cusp of adulthood…we can handle freedom.I had an amazing time at AGS…I wish it could be a year long school…minus the dorms.It was amazing. I truly have no complaints.It was a fun experience. I will never forget it. I loved it and wish I could come again. AGS changed my life. It made me find who I am and it was such a great experience.

I loved every minute!8/10 few complaints.Happy and eye opening.It was an awesome experience.I loved my time here.Life changing and wonderful.It’s been incredible. If you don’t mind, I think I will just stay here.Tiring but intellectually beneficial as well as preparatory for college.My experience was better than I thought it would be coming into this. I became a better person.I had a great time. This is something that I will never forget.It has been too amazing to describe. I will never forget the experience, the people, and activities that have come along with it.Extremely enjoyable and very constructive.Really great! There was a wide variety of things to do and topics and things. The only thing is the organization on outings a lot of the time was really messy.For the first three weeks I hated it. I was homesick and hadn’t met anyone outside of my school. But then I met new people and have loved AGS. I have made friends I won’t forget and learned so many things. Also, AGS is amazing in the way people are more positive and accepting.I tried new things and was open to new ideas. It was definitely a good experience.It was enjoyable, but the classes contributed very little knowledge or entertainment and were not efficient. I did not make close contacts but met good acquaintances. Best experience I’ve ever had. I WISH I COULD STAY FOREVER.It was great. I learned so much and had a blast!One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t consider it time wasted at all.Definitely worth it; I’ve learned a lot and met some great people.It was wonderful and so many opportunities opened up to me.Best experience of my life so far.Wonderful preparatory enlightening summer.Perhaps not as rewarding as I would like, as I’m a comp sci kid. Maybe a little long. I’ll probably remember odd bits (like 4:10s) later on, though.GREAT! But tiring though.My overall experience at AGS was great. I’m going to take a lot of what I learned here back home.It was a fantastic experience. Everything I did was fun, exciting or eye opening.3 / 5I absolutely loved AGS. I really came out of my shell and enjoyed almost every minute.Legendary. Enlightening. Invaluable. Necessary.

I’ve learned a lot and wouldn’t trade this for the world.10 / 10 would do again right now forever and always YES7 / 10It was fun, but not life-changing. I’m ready to go home.

Thank you all so much.AMAZING! I would do it again if I had the chance.I had an amazing time and I’ve made friends I’ll carry forever.It was alright for an introvert that hates closed-minded people that can be really mean. 3 /5 Would recommend it.It had its ups and downs, but it was great.I loved it.Going to AGS was worth the six weeks of my summer.It was top notch.

I’ve been exposed to multiple new ideas.AGS is literally an experience of a lifetime. I can’t imagine not coming here this summer. I’m taking so many things with me and am excited to share them.It was the best it could have been! I learned so much about the world and how people really are. I loved it.It was wonderful! I don’t want to leave.I do not want to leave. This is about to be very hard for me to leave here and return home. I’ve told friends back home they’re lucky this isn’t a permanent school.Great. I was terrified of six weeks, but I wouldn’t change anything. I’m grateful for the opportunity and most events/staff were enthusiastic and welcoming.AGS overall was an incredible experience. The classes and faculty really pushed us to grow as individuals and as a community. The memories and friendships were more than worth the six weeks of summer.This is an experience that I am so thankful to have. I had the best time here!If I could live here I would.This was truly a life-changing experience. Despite the organizational kinks and the nit-picky rules, this program was perfect.AWESOME. 10 / 10 Wish this was a boarding school.I loved the classes, activities, and people but my dorm experience made the whole thing unpleasant and uncomfortable.My overall experience at AGS was definitely an absolutely great and beneficial one. I wish it would not end.AGS was unimaginably beneficial to me as an intellectual and a member of society. In simpler terms, I had a “whale” of a time.AGS, for me, was GREAT! It blew my mind then repaired it back together. This was certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!It was nothing I ever expected. My Area I class was most beneficial to me, and I will keep in touch with everyone that I can.I loved AGS so much. There’s too much to say in this tiny space! AGS let me love learning again, and allowed me to interact with those who love learning, too. AGS opened my eyes and let me better understand people and the world around me. This was an incredible experience that I will keep in my heart forever.AGS has challenged me in a positive way in that I have had to learn how to stand for my beliefs even when they may not be very popular.I had the time of my life in a unique community that I will never forget, and also…KOYAANISQATSI.It was an incredible experience I will never forget. I wish it would never end. I think I’ll just stay.Off the charts! Best time of my life!AGS has taught me a lot. What college plans I now have are different from when I came. I have so many new friends with so much they can offer me. AGS has opened a world for me that nothing else really can and nothing else really has.It was GREAT!I really enjoyed it. I wish I could do it again. Or have something similar in the future. I would definitely recommend it.A fantastic experience, something I’m without a doubt grateful having.My overall experience at AGS was great.AWESOME. The people were awesome, my classes were interesting, and the teachers were awesome. I learned more about myself than anything else, and I think I really needed this experience.It was fun, exciting, interesting, and mind blowing.Fantastic. I would repeat it in a heartbeat.My overall experience here has been motivating and unforgettable. I will miss this place!I think it has helped me better understand myself.It was okay. Honestly, I did not enjoy it. Already living in an environment like this, I found it more strict. My summer had more rules and less fun than the school year.I have learned so much in the short time I have been at AGS. I am so glad I got this amazing opportunity.It was AMAZING!!! Best experience of my life. The atmosphere is incredible and it is so much fun. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Six weeks felt like two weeks.Life changing physically, thanks to the WAC, and mentally.It is an experience I will have in my head until the minute I die. The people here, and what I’ve been able to accomplish here…it’s amazing.I enjoyed all the classes & how there was a wide variety of optional educational & recreational activities. I felt that more should be done to force students to socialize & interact, especially w/people outside their own group. I felt a lot of people here hide in their rooms after class. I also think we should expand everyone’s mind even more by offering even more abstract & controversial ideas.I had a wonderful time. I will always remember this experience.AGS was a very good program and long. I loved it but I do wish we could have some more privileges.I can’t imagine ever regretting coming here.It was so unique! It definitely helped me to grow into my true self.It was magnificent. If I could I would apply again.My overall experience was amazing! Not only did I learn a lot, but I also developed friendships that I hope will last for the rest of my life.Amazing! I wish that I could stay and learn more and hang out with the great students and staff.As one of the best of my life. I can’t imagine going on the same way after it (that’s a good thing).The best program I’ve been to. The atmosphere and ambience can beat all others.Amazing, & everything and more of what I was expecting it to be.Amazing and incomparable to my senior year. I wish this was my senior year!It was mostly great, but long. I’ve found myself really excited to go home. The 4:10/6:10’s were probably the best thing here; they’re a fantastic idea.On a scale of one to ten, AGS was a 2…I’m kidding. It was a 10 without a doubt. It was everything I was expecting & more!! I really enjoyed it.I enjoyed the experience and I am happy I came.It was a wonderful experience that I would not trade for the world.I would describe my experience at AGS as very beneficial in that I have gained new knowledge and perspectives about the world and enjoyable in that I have gained what I hope will become life-long friends.I liked it a lot. I think we are all super grateful to have gotten to come during the 6 week program.Lovely! I got pretty exhausted in the middle which made things harder but that wasn’t anyone’s fault. Maybe there should be one “recharge” day, especially now that it’s back to 6 weeks.It was enjoyable. I made good friends and learned a few things along the way. I’m glad I came.It was amazing and a once-in-a-life time opportunity.Well spent and enjoyable. Came away with a passion to learn so much more.AGS was a life-changing experience. I really enjoyed it.Very super awesome cool. Best summer I’ve had. A really great experience for everyone involved.It was a fantastic academic experience.AMAZING! Without AGS I wouldn’t feel confident in my life choices – it made me think freely.AGS was life changing. I loved virtually every aspect of it. It made me learn to think critically.10 / 10Fairly positive. I did get a little tired of so much debating though.Very enjoyable.This is the most fun I have had in a long time! AGS is amazing.AMAZING! Once in a lifetime forever friends and memories.It is something that will stay with me forever. The liberal environment and speakers did make me feel uncomfortable and offended at times, but overall, very beneficial. 1 to 10 an 8.65AGS was a great experience. I met so many new people, loved my classes and teachers, and participated in fun activities constantly.It was fun, minus some slow times.This time has been very intellectually stimulating and I really enjoyed the activities/social life.Tiring, confusing bizarre and amazing. 20 / 10, there’s no other way to say how much I truly enjoyed this program.It was a really fun time where I met cool people and learned a lot from them.I really loved it. It was one of the greatest experiences that I have ever had before and coming from Mexico I feel like this has changed my life.AGS has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.I wish I could come back next year! I loved my time spent here; it was so much fun and I learned so much.A wonderful glance into the future for college.A life changing experience every senior should get to have.I loved AGS. It challenged my thinking, opened by eyes to new issues, and at the same time made me more confident in my beliefs. We watched way too many movies though!Very worthwhile.The educational, social, and residential aspects have all been awesome. This is such an awesome place, and the experience has been one that I would never want to forget. I wish that I could say here forever.10 / 10I loved it. This is a fantastic experience to have, and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it.I am very glad to have come. I live at school for most of the year and AGS was more time from home, but I think it was the best way to spend my summer.I absolutely loved it and I don’t want to go home.Fantastic, I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. Wish I could have AGS every summer.I liked it. It wasn’t completely life-changing, but I think I’m ready to live at college now. On a 1-10 scale, I’d say a 7. I had fun. I loved the 4:10s/6:10s. It was interesting and stimulating.Fantastic. I can think of no better way to spend my summer. It’s been really constructive and interesting.It was very beneficial, fun, and I wish I could go again!I don’t think I could have spent six weeks of my summer in a better way.I loved AGS! It was great! I feel like I have a new perspective on the world.I absolutely loved it. There are so many amazing people.I enjoyed it. It was more of a social experience that an educational one for me, but I did learn some things. I would recommend it to the others.I’m a much better person for it. AGS helped me to find myself and people like me. It helped me realize I’m not alone and there are people out there who enjoy what I do equally. I’ve come to appreciate others more as well.I don’t want to leave.Fantastic. I loved being here, and I am so happy it was 6 weeks. It will easily be my best high school experience. Mind blowing, life changing, amazingly awesome, irreplaceable, unbelievable, can’t even describe how amazing it was for me.Off the charts! I never thought six weeks would have so much impact on my last 17 years.Very, very excellent. Unlike anything I’ve experienced. Wondrous learning, health socializing, incredible thinking and pondering.Great experience to meet different people and expand my world view and prepare me for life after high school.Amazing. I learned a lot about myself and how I interact with others. I learned so much in Area I and II that I will keep forever. I have also formed many new relationships with people which I feel will last.It was generally positive. I lost interest in the afternoon lectures after the second week. Often times I dreaded attending my classes or required events due to dislike or boredom, but I enjoyed 1 / 5 days in class and the free time.An amazing experience. I would love to experience it again!It was perfect in every way.The best summer ever. The friends I’ve made and things I’ve learned has made me a better person than I could have imagined.Awesome! I would love to repeat it. It was an unforgettable experience.AGS is fun and opened my mind.A very fun and perspective changing experience.It should be longer!

There was so much to learn and I tried to soak up every bit of it. I was reluctant to come at first, but I’m so thankful I came. I LOVED IT.It was amazing and awesome.It was amazing.I had an amazing time and I am so happy I came here for the summer.My experience was overall amazing.I enjoyed it and I am sad to leave.GREAT!!! (but I wanna go home).Awesome, most definitely I won’t forget it.Incredible and I strongly desire to return as an RA.A+10 / 10 A+ 100% I liked the six weeks. Now I’m ready to go home and I wasn’t at 4 weeks.It is probably the best thing I’ve done in my life. I “discovered” who I really am and I made friends I’ll never forget.AGS is an awesome experience.I enjoyed it, especially the social aspect. My classes were great. I made friends, and had fun so I guess I give it a thumbs up.A chapter in my life has ended.

I’m really going to miss the teachers here and the students. I am seriously going to cry. Thank you for this awesome opportunity. FANTASTIC! I have been provided an amazing experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Such an amazing place!It was an eye opening experience that has bettered every aspect of my life and helped me.Extremely beneficial. The mock college atmosphere was fantastic.4.9 / 5.0 heartsIt was amazing. I wish there was an AGS boarding school where we wouldn’t have to leave until college.I loved the deep friendships I formed and the life lessons I learned.My overall experience at AGS has been close to my heart, and it is one I will cherish for the rest of my life.It truly is “life changing”. I honestly cannot sum my experiences in two sentences. There are no words to explain.Sorry one word answer – SupercalifrayilisticexpealidociousMy experience at AGS has been completely life changing and extremely positive. It has opened up my eyes to a greater sense of the world and a greater sense of self.I really loved my experience here. I think I grew as a student as well as a person. I’m really glad I had the opportunity to come. The volume of required events and amount of babying the students received regarding attendance was obnoxious but the events themselves were really nice.It was wonderful. I loved it and I don’t want to leave.I would say that overall my experience here has been positive. I’ve met so many people and done so many things that otherwise I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do.I have too little space to put it right here. So I will summarize, it was AMAZING.Every pleasant adjective in the English language. It was a great experience where I have had made some lifelong friends.Quite enjoyable and pleasant change of pace.It was life-changing and experience building.I’ve made a lot of good friends and learned so much. I’m going to miss the communal life style.It’s been fantastic, wild and unnerving all at once! I am so glad I came! I don’t think my life is ever going to be the same.AGS was great. I would have liked more speakers that have more conservative views because some attacked my views. This also applies to 4:10/6:10s.It was a great experience. I will remember this experience for my entire life. I will miss this program greatly.I have loved it. I have been so happy and enjoyed every moment of my time here. I don’t think I’ve missed home once.I’m very glad & thankful I got to enjoy this experience!It was the best 6 weeks of my life.Life changing. New friends, a broader view of the future. I will never forget the memories I made here. I feel bad for those who had this experience for only four weeks.Incredibly positive in that I experienced a lot of new things, mainly through 4:10s and 6:10s, and it was just a positive intellectual environment.Some of the greatest 6 weeks of my life that I’m sure will benefit me in the future.I didn’t get a great deal out of the classes but the social environment was excellent and I benefited greatly from that.AGS was a life changing experience!! I enjoyed it so much! AGS helped me grow as a person! I have grown socially, physically, and mentally. I loved AGS!! Best 6 weeks of my life!!My Area I, II, and III classes were awesome, so they were what made AGS worthwhile to me.It was fantastic! I would do it again in a heartbeat. I wish school was like AGS.On a scale of 1 - 10, I’d give it infinity times infinity.I loved AGS. I think it has been one of my best experiences of high school.One of the best experiences I have ever had.Amazing. I will never forget my experience here or the friendships I’ve gained.I loved it. I would like to come back.I don’t wanna leave; way more preferable to regular high school.I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience here and all the friends I have made.Wouldn’t change a thing.AWESOME!A life changing experience.It was wonderful! I’m going to miss it!The best summer I have ever had to date.I don’t want to leave. Can we make this into a boarding school? We would beast at quiz bowl.Excellent, it was everything I thought it would be and more.7 out of 10 due to restrictions of productivity and socialization.Enjoyable and beneficial.Don’t want to go home.I thought it was amazing and I wouldn’t trade these last six weeks for anything in the world.Exciting & fun.It was amazing. I loved it, and would do it again. Wish it was like a senior high school. I want to work here, too!This has been a mind-broadening, life changing experience. I’ve found a new perspective on life, and I would recommend it to anybody.Overall, I had a fantastic time at AGS.This was a great experience although it wasn’t as eye opening for me as for some other people. This is mainly due to my very accepting and culturally interested family and town. I would definitely come back. AGS has taught me so much about thinking and personal relationships as well as what it is like to embrace more freedoms.An experience I’ll never forget!! I don’t wanna leave!!!10! I have an amazing time. The people are amazing.It was a fantastic experience. I really enjoyed Area I and Area II and I have made some truly incredible friends here.LOVED it!! I would stay forever if I could.It was amazing! I met so many awesome people and learned many new interesting concepts.
