What is it like teaching abroad at the American College of Norway? Fall 2017 faculty member from the University of North Dakota, Ashleah Wimberly shares great insight into what it’s like to be a visiting faculty member at ACN. Ashleah also opens up about her transformation not only as a teacher, but as a now global citizen in this reflective blog piece.
We would like to give a special shout out and thanks to Unni Gran from Skadesminke U.G. for coming down to ACN and helping create some pretty terrifying wound makeup for our haunted house this year. Your great work was definitely a factor to this year’s well-received haunted house. Thanks for sharing your talent and craft with our staff, faculty and students, we’re all beyond appreciative.
During this year’s fall break, American College of Norway students, faculty and staff went on a once in a lifetime Arctic expedition to Svalbard, Norway – Norway’s farthest northern territory! This exciting travel course was led by Dr. John Ross and this year’s ACN students got to explore Pyramiden, hike thousand-year-old glaciers and listen to educational lectures at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS)!
Another year, another incredible Homecoming Week filled with fun activities! Homecoming is a pivotal time at any American university institution and here at ACN, we aim to create the classic American Homecoming experience. Throughout the week we had fun dress up days, tasty treats, an American football game and a Masquerade Homecoming Dance!
