Road Trip USA
Take a Trip and See the USA that Hollywood Doesn't Show You!
With Road Trip USA, we want to bring you glimpses of the US that exists outside of American University. The program takes international students to locations up and down the East Coast to gain first-hand experience of the culture that makes up this land. From trips to county fairs and the famous Pennsylvania Amish Country, Road Trip USA will help you learn about American culture and spend quality time with other international students.
