AMIS is the French word for "friends" and symbolizes our mission to promote cultural and global understanding through friendship and hospitality with international students and scholars in the greater Atlanta area. We connect international students with local American friends through our many programs and events.

AMIS Volunteer, Nadeen, talks about the impact of AMIS on her life:
AMIS was featured in an episode of AIB Network's "Making a Difference"
Studying City Planning at Georgia Tech from Taiwan
I want to take this chance to say thank you for all the work you've done for us. AMIS has been a very warm source of my life living abroad, and has really helped me adjust to my life here. I also made some good friends because of AMIS's events, which is awesome. So, THANK YOU!
AMIS will always be a part of my life. It has allowed me to be connected with young people when I am so far away from my immediate family and grandchildren. These friends have kept me young in spirit.
Studying at Columbia Theological Seminary from Nigeria
AMIS gave me a home away from home experience, through their dedication, time, and warm embrace which meant a lot to me. AMIS was able to create memorable experiences for us helping us have fun outside our busy academics schedule and having people we can call family, despite being a first timer in the country. I appreciate and thank AMIS leadership team for the care and support.
