Life After AUIS

Recently, one of my best and dearest friends who also happens to be an AUIS alum, visited me in Amsterdam. It was a short visit, but a big part of our conversation was about all the experiences we shared during our times at AUIS. The student government, student clubs, blogs, demonstrations and many more were some of the memories we recalled. It was an inspiring meeting looking at where we both stand now.

I kept thinking about AUIS even after my friend left. I have always valued my experiences at AUIS and have always been thankful for what the university has offered me. The words, “Without AUIS, I would not be able to stand where I am now,” started almost all my conversations with my friends. AUIS was definitely the one and only place that offered me a number of opportunities that would have been too difficult to get elsewhere in the country during my college life.
