Share Your Experience

Can we quote you?

You can make a difference for prospective students! We're looking for quotes for next year's AIFS catalogs. You can talk about anything; whether it's about a particular part of the program or the experience as a whole, we want to hear it. Please send us your thoughts here!

Serve as a web referral

Interested students like to connect with alumni from specific locations. As a web referral, students can send an email to you through their student portal and ask questions about your experience and the location. If you are interested in helping to advise prospective students, please email us at and let us know. Please note that we will not share your email address with any third parties.
