I wanted to go to ACN because as an American just finishing a year of folkehøgskole I wanted desperately to both spend more time in Norway, and get started on my degree. I decided to go to ACN for the 2019 Fall Semester, and the 2020 Spring Semester. ACN is a relatively small school, but for me, that was a hugely positive aspect of it. I was able to easily integrate as part of the community because of its small size, and the many activities and events held on campus. Living at the ACN dorms in Verket, Moss, was really fun and comfortable. I had plenty of space and I really enjoyed the transition of doing all my own dishes and cooking all my own meals with my roommate. My teachers at ACN were enthusiastic and engaged, with many fascinating subjects to offer. But perhaps my favorite thing was the 1 credit travel seminar to Svalbard, offered in the fall. Myself and my friends made quite a few expeditions on our own as well, taking regular day trips to nearby cities, in order to explore more of beautiful Norway. In summation, I'd say that ACN is the perfect experience for any Americans who want a chance to spend some time in this great country, as well as for any Norwegians that are curious for a taste of American college life. Highly recommended!
