Testimonials

AMS really does open your mind. After this year, I definitely think and act differently as a result from all the amazing experiences I’ve had. The mix of different cultures, personalities, and courses has taught me a great deal about myself and the world around me. Even better, I have been able to go through this change with some of the best friends that I wouldn’t have met without AMS. Not only did I learn a lot from the amazing professors, my multicultural group of friends has been a prime example of how we can come together to accomplish great things.— Engelina Chaillet
