Culture Talks with AMIS
Time & Location
About the Event
What cultural differences have you noticed between American culture and your home culture? What surprised you about living in the US? What aspects of American culture do you enjoy? Join AMIS for an interactive panel discussion on “Communicating Across Cultures" and explore the differences and similarities between American and global cultures and receive tips for thriving in a cross-cultural environment. This event is part of GSU's International Spring Festival, but ALL international students are welcome to attend.
