Arizona State University (ASU) is a public educational institution, premier research center and a leader in innovation. The American English and Culture Program (AECP) within the university was established in 1974, since when it has been dedicated to providing specifically-designed intensive English as a Second Language programs. The program has been welcoming students from more than 115 countries. Since it strives to offer cultural immersion, besides classes, field trips to various places in Arizona and a good range of activities ensure that students become familiar with ASU and the American way of life. Full time student advisors are always there to assist with the students’ orientation, immigration counseling, and ASU applications, too.
