A new year, new memories!

Student Life


Last month marked the start of another school year at ACN. And with a new school year upon us, that means we helped welcome a whole new group of students to ACN!

This year we welcomed over 50 new students who will study with us throughout the 2016/2017 school year before embarking on their much anticipated journeys to the U.S. In addition to our Norwegian students, we also welcomed students from the Faroe Islands, Brazil and Vietnam this year! We are also excited to help host an enthusiastic group of American exchange students at ACN!

This year’s Welcome Week proved to be another hit and bonding experience among the students. With various events including grilling, quiz night, and the crowd favorite scavenger hunt around Moss, our new students got a chance to get to know each other and as well as our staff and professors all while creating what are sure to be long lasting memories.

The highlight of Welcome Week by far was the activities day at Våler Kickoff Senter, where everyone came together for a day of fun filled day of adventurous and exciting activities! With everyone playing round after round of paintball and zip lining throughout the woods, we all came together for an unforgettable day, not to mention a memorable start for our students’ college career!

We can’t wait to see what new and exciting things our new students bring to ACN this school year! Welcome to ACN everyone!
