Welcome to AMIS!
AMIS invites all international students and scholars in the Greater Atlanta area to join our programs and events to introduce you to our city and connect you to local American friends. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our programs will be adjusted to comply with CDC and Georgia Department of Health guidelines. Because of this, our Welcome Reception is canceled. Decisions about Thanksgiving will be announced in September. Christmas International House has been cancelled. Click on the pictures to learn more about each program. Sign up for our mailing list below to receive monthly e-mails about AMIS events. To learn more about our mission and values, read here.
Sign up for the Amigo Friendship program to be connected with a local individual or family.
Events are a great way to get to know other international students AND American friends. Most events are scheduled earlier in the semester when school demands aren't quite as high. Last year we toured MLK, hiked at Kennesaw Mountain State Park, visited the Delta Flight Museum, watched the Atlanta Hawks play basketball, and enjoyed several potlucks in homes around Metro Atlanta. Although fall events have been postponed, they will be rescheduled as soon as it is safe to do so.
