Exploring the Connections Between Norway and Ireland on American College of Norway’s Viking Themed Travel Course to Dublin!
This past Easter break, American College of Norway students, faculty and staff traveled to Dublin, Ireland to explore the connections between Norway and Ireland on ACN’s Game of Thrones: Vikings, High Kings, and the Irish Church, faculty-led travel course.
Every October, we transform our hallowed halls into a horrifying haunted house, and this year was no exception! This year, nearly 300 people came through our doors… some had to even leave early! We definitely put on an authentic American haunted house, that’s for sure. Read more about this year’s urban legends themed haunted house. There is even a video of the haunted house at the end of the blog!
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 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.
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.
