WHY GIV?

You’ve Never Had This Much Fun Learning!

 

Every Governor’s Institute is as unique and special as the students who attend. But they all share some common attributes. They’re all focused on YOU, the student, and the topics you love. They’re all very concentrated, intense blasts of learning, discovery and thought, all rolled up into more fun than you think could even be possible. They all introduce you to inspiring mentors and Vermonters your age that we bet you’ll stay in touch with forever. Here’s what last year’s students have to say about why:

 

“There are few experiences in life that change a person; however, GIV happens to be one of those experiences.”

 

“It was amazing how many brilliant like-minded people surrounded me. There was never a dull moment and I was never in a room that didn’t contain at least a half a dozen friends.”

 

“I knew that there was going to be a lot of art there; what I wasn’t expecting was to have an abnormally large smile on my face for two weeks straight.”

 

“This wasn’t just some run-of-the-mill summer camp. The people who had put together the program really wanted us to learn and take something away with us…. It is a great program and I was very lucky to be able to participate in it.”

 

“I think the program fit in a remarkable amount for just twelve days.”

 

“My attendance resulted in the most enjoyable, informative, and enlightening two weeks of my life.
