Mrs. Lynn Bryant, Director

Athens Share (Student Hospitality and Relational Exchange) seeks to provide community and family-oriented support for  international graduate students, helping them to become better acclimated to American culture, to experience Southern hospitality through interaction with local families and individuals, and to explore the Christian faith if desired.

Athens Share has a weekly Bible study and dinner on Friday evenings that meets at St. James United Methodist Church at 6:30 p.m.  We meet in the Jimmy, a brick house located next door to the church on West Lake Drive.  The church is located two blocks from Five Points (South Campus) at the intersection of South Lumpkin Street and West Lake Drive and is on the Athens Transit System bus route #9.

Athens Share will begin hosting “First Friday Fellowship” in fall semester 2016.  We will also provide Family Connection Partners for students who desire to interact with local families/individuals on a one-to-one basis.

International graduate students and visiting scholars in Athens are encouraged to send Lynn Bryant a FaceBook friend request in order to be added to our group on FaceBook.  (Search for Lynn.Bryant.ISM.)  You are also invited to check out Athens Share’s website at  We look forward to connecting with you soon!
