The American College of Norway has organized a travel course to Svalbard the past two years and this year was no exception. With great interest and tremendous success the past two trips, another Arctic expedition was planned! This year, 16 students spent an unforgettable week exploring Norway’s northernmost territory with Dr. John Ross. Current ACN student and intern, Monique Østbye reflects on the unforgettable trip in our latest blog post.
This year’s Homecoming Week 2018 was a huge success thanks in part to ACN’s Activities Committee. This dedicated committee of students came together to plan an unforgettable and eventful Homecoming Week that was full of fun dress up days, delicious snacks and a magical themed Homecoming Dance.
After a hectic week of gathering prizes, making groups and planning activities, one of the best weeks of the year has passed; the American College of Norway’s annual Welcome Week! We were thrilled to welcome students from all over Norway, the United States and the world to ACN!
This past summer, the American College of Norway celebrated its 25th anniversary right where it all started, in Moss, Norway! ACN alumni, faculty, staff and supporters came from near and far to celebrate our 25th anniversary with fun-filled reunion events the last weekend of June. With over 100 attendees in total, there were countless reunions and walks down memory lane.
Every summer we welcome students to the American College of Norway to take part in a four-week summer session and this summer was no exception. This summer we had students participate in the program from the University of North Dakota, Mayville State University, West Chester University, Adelphi University and Norwegian students from ACN. The students took courses focused on environmental challenges as well as studying everything from the Vikings to modern art in a class focused on Oslo, West Chester student, Lexy Zimmerman opens up about her time abroad at ACN this summer.
