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.
Extend friendship to an international student or two during the school year through the Amigo Friendship Program.
"I love the opportunity to share cultures, perspectives, and experiences through AMIS. The scheduled events are great for mixing and meeting new people. It's an easy way to meet new people outside your network and to show hospitality to wonderful people from around the world!"
