ASA UMass 2012: Guest Blogger Victor Dulout!

It has been almost twenty-seven days since a single drop of the clear Massachusetts rain fell on the campus of Amherst. The grass is getting itchy, leaving only the brave one to play the difficult sport that is called soccer. Water is getting valuable as it gets harder to walk towards the closest fountain or to the cafeteria. Our throats are getting itchy as we laugh and have fun with the numerous kids with different nationalities. Any activity is taken with heart and care by the kids in the beautiful Dorm “North A”. As the peak hour approaches, many go back in their relaxing suite to relax or work after the very interesting AM classes. When you feel fully happy about the amount of attention you put in your homework, the RA will always have a fun activity for you to enjoy and laugh.

I had a lot of fun during these 4 weeks where the students feel valued and are always happy to learn, laugh, or just walk around this magnificent campus. The RAs, like the teachers, are very professional and always ready to help a diverse and pleasant group of students.

“It feels like just yesterday when I walked into the lobby of North A, suitcase rolling and butterflies in my stomach. All the excitement of meeting new friends, RA’s, and classmates still feels fresh in my mind. The orientation games that brought us close together as a camp, was a great way to start off our experience. This summer has been a blast! It is super hard to think of my favorite program memory, but if I had to choose, it would probably be having the opportunity to meet new people from all over the world. Every moment I’ve spent at ASA Summerfuel UMass has been so much fun. I have loved meeting everyone and I’m glad I got to spend such a wonderful summer with you all.”
