Going into its 50th year in 2017, the Ateneo Student Exchange Council has made its mark as the organization for intercultural and student exchange in the Ateneo.
As the official student arm of the Ateneo Office for International Relations, we are the home organization for foreign exchange students and the support system for the Junior Term Abroad program.
ASEC opens up opportunities for our members to transform into global citizens by experiencing intercultural exchange through our various projects and efforts. These include culture swap activities, providing information on study abroad programs and exposure trips both local and international.
Overall, our advocacy is to build a multi-cultural community that unites our members together from different countries.
