In a land so far away from where I grew up, I found IHAA!

“A place which changed my definition of home. I remember walking into IHAA and looking at all the flags decorated across the common spaces; and those flags were the first indication which told me that this place will bring the world to me. I made some of my most wonderful memories with absolutely amazing people in Ann Arbor, and 80% of them were in IHAA.”

It opens your eyes and gives you different perspectives.

“Being surrounded by students from all over the world with different experiences and points of view is really amazing. It opens your eyes and gives you different perspectives. It fosters understanding and makes you a more open-minded individual, which is extremely valuable and important for being an active and considerate part of the cosmopolitan society we live in.”
