American Culture Experiences

The American Culture Experience is a semester long series of trips and experiences that introduce international students to aspects of American culture and opportunities to visit local areas of interest.  U.S. students are welcome to attend as well.  Past experiences include hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, visiting CNN and Coca-Cola in Atlanta, attending the Tennessee Valley Fair and Livestock Show, going to Six Flags amusement park, shopping at the local outlet malls in Pigeon Forge, visiting a local dairy, and attending a college football tailgate party and game!
