For the past 42 years, AMIS has welcomed International Students and Scholars to the greater Atlanta area through an Annual Welcome Concert and Reception. AMIS has long been known for offering hospitality and friendship to our International friends, and we hope to continue for years to come.
To our students: Welcome! We are glad you are here and hope that AMIS can help you make American friends while you are in Atlanta.
To our volunteers: Thank you. Your hospitality means the world to so many students who have shared time with you.
If you have not yet experienced the joy of sharing cultures, we welcome you, too.
