ACN is truly a supportive, open, and loving community. I feel so lucky that I got to be a part of it! The staff and students make Norway genuinely feel like home and studying here allows for a unique study abroad experience. Throughout my time at ACN I was supported in every sense. They understand the stressors that come with studying abroad and eased every worry I had. Upon arrival I was prepped with pictures of the airport, and clear directions how to get to the school. Staff also brought us to the grocery store to help find food we’d enjoy and with the language barrier. Throughout the first weekend we had many activities planned to welcome the students and give everyone time to meet and settle in before classes started. Because of the close-knit community that ACN creates I became friends with a lot of Norwegians who helped me navigate travel, culture, and language. I have an enriched idea of Norwegian life now, the students helped me plan trips to the most beautiful places in Norway, and some secret local spots. I genuinely believe this is a one of a kind programs and I can’t imagine having gone to any other school for study abroad. The best part is, when I plan my trip back to Norway, I have a home to visit and tons of people to meet up with!
