We believe that one person can make a difference in the life of an international college/graduate student or scholar studying in the US. International students are the best and brightest of their home countries and the future leaders of the world. Coming to the US can be a lonely and intimidating experience, and a time of cultural adjustment.


Offering friendship and hospitality to an international student will go a long way to help them to feel welcome in our city, give them confidence in their life here, and help them have a positive experience with Americans.  You may make a life-long international friend, and you will learn so much from them as they share their cultures and perspectives.

Hear what international students have to say about AMIS Atlanta.
