"Together...We Achieve More"

The Freshmen AAMI Member cohort (FAM) is a group of 20 incoming freshmen AAMI participants selected to participate in the "first-year AAMI experience" and commit to developing their academic, leadership and professional skills.  These cohort members are encouraged to build brotherly connections and support each other as they progress through college. 

What is the "first-year AAMI experience"?

The "first-year AAMI experience" is a collection of experiences designed to help the FAM cohort succeed in their first year of college. It will consist of the following:

  • AAMI IMPACT: A 3/2-night extended summer orientation in July exclusively for FAM participants. (This year's AAMI IMPACT will be held in-person Thursday, July 20th - 22nd). 
  • Peer Mentorship: Each FAM participant will select an upperclassmen mentor from the AAMI Ambassador program to help guide them through their first year. 
  • AAMI Workshops and Socials: A collection of programs designed to develop academic, leadership and professional skills.

IMPACT is a 3-day/2 night summer orientation program for students that have been accepted into the AAMI Freshmen Cohort. All meals, lodging, and entertainment costs are covered by KSU. During IMPACT, attendees will meet the other cohort members, learn more about the AAMI program, and learn how to successfully transition into college life. 

  • The objectives of IMPACT are:

    • Introduce students to the staff and support services of the Cultural and Community Centers.
    • Allow students to preview “college living” by staying in the Kennesaw Campus Residence Halls.
    • Help students establish relationships and support networks with other AAMI students.
    • Learn more about the AAMI program including the AAMI Learning Community, AAMI peer mentoring structure, and our academic support programs.
