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. Thanks for the great blog, Lexy – we had a fabulous summer with you and your cohort!
ACN Alumni, Faculty and Friends, as we celebrate and build on ACN’s 25 year history of accomplishments, we remain challenged by limited resources to ensure that future students are also able to benefit from an ACN experience. We strive to provide the very best educational and personal growth experiences at an affordable cost. ACN increasingly depends on private philanthropy for the continued evolution of the college as a place where Norway and American truly meet for the benefit of all students. Therefore, we ask that you, as a supporter of ACN, help to celebrate our 25th Anniversary by becoming a Founding Donor to the new American College of Norway Foundation, USA.
