International House

American Culture Experiences

The American Culture Experience is a semester long series of trips and experiences that introduce international and American students to aspects of East Tennessee culture and opportunities to visit local areas of interest.  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!

American and international students are welcome to sign up for trips in person at the International House front desk during normal opening hours.  Only cash or check is currently accepted for ticket payment.
