Common questions about the Fall Student Government Summit.
1. Will we have time to sightsee while we’re in Orlando?
Yes! If you arrive early on Friday, you’ll have the whole day to see Orlando.
After the conference schedule ends on Saturday evening, you’ll have time to see the town. And Sunday after the conference concludes at 12:30 p.m. would be a perfect day to sightsee!
2. If I’m by myself, will I “fit in?”
Yes! You’ll easily connect with other student leaders or advisors. ASGA’s popular “Connector Cards” help you break the ice and get ideas and exchange information from other students and advisors. You’ll get to meet them during workshops, breaks, at lunch, sightseeing, and at the hotel. You won’t be lonely!
3. Are any meals included?
Yes! Your registration fee includes:
1. Free lunch: A boxed lunch on Saturday (choice of sandwich, chips, fruit, cookie, drink)
2. Free breakfast: The hotel offers a free hot, made-to-order breakfast for guests each morning
3. Free nightly reception: The hotel also offers a free nightly reception with drinks and snacks
4. Can I change the names of our registrants if someone can’t make it?
Yes! You can change the names anytime before the conference starts. See Register.
5. Can you help me find a roommate at the conference hotel?
Yes! If you are looking for a roommate, write firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, gender, e-mail, arrival and departure date, and any special requests.
6. Will I need a rental car?
Probably. Orlando does not offer convenient public transportation options. If you’re flying, you will need transportation to and from airport, conference location, restaurants, and attractions.
While you can take a taxi ($52-$68), shuttle van ($22-$37 per person), or Uber ($76-$97) from the Orlando International Airport to the conference hotel, ASGA recommends that you get a rental car for additional sightseeing, shopping, and restaurant options in Orlando.
The conference hotel offers a free shuttle that stops at all four Disney parks, as well as SeaWorld and Universal Studios (Contact the hotel for the shuttle schedule).
7. Do I have to be an ASGA member to come to the conference?
No! Some non-member schools always attend ASGA conferences. However, ASGA members do save $100 per person at this event. Annual ASGA dues are just $397 for schools under 4,000 full-time students, $597 for schools with 4,001 to 10,000 students, $897 for schools with 10,001 to 20,000 students, and only $1,097 annually for schools with over 20,000 full-time students. If you’re bringing a group of four or more students, it almost always makes sense to join ASGA and get the $100 per person discount! Plus, ASGA membership can help your SG all year! See Join ASGA.
8. Where can we eat and not spend a fortune?
Remember, two hot buffet breakfasts, a boxed lunch, and evening receptions are included in your registration fees. But dinners are on your own. See Experience Orlando!
9. What type of schools attend?
All types and sizes of schools come to the Fall Student Government Summit. There usually are a few more private colleges and universities than public universities and community colleges. But that’s only because there are more private colleges across the nation than any other type of institution!
10. How many schools attend?
Usually, about 250-300 students and administrators from 30 institutions of all types and sizes attend. From 15-20 states are represented, and there are usually about an equal number of community colleges, private institutions, and public institutions
11. What’s included in our registration fee?
Thirty workshops and roundtables, all handouts, lunch (a boxed lunch), two continental breakfasts (coffee/tea, juice, bagels, muffins, fruit), and an afternoon cookie/drink break. See Conference Fees.
12. How should I dress?
Business formal or casual is highly recommended.
13. Can I see the schedule and workshops in advance?
