American Cultural Experiences

American Cultural Experience events introduce students to East Tennessee and provide opportunities to visit local areas of interest. Past experiences have included hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains, visiting the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta, going to Six Flags amusement park, shopping at local outlet malls, visiting a local dairy, and many more!

Domestic and international students are all welcome to sign up for trips. There is no fee to attend, but sometimes it is necessary for us to require a refundable deposit so we can arrange adequate transportation and order the appropriate number of tickets. Please see below to register for our current ACE event.
