Friluftsveka

Skiing in Norway - it doesn't get much better!

In February, first-year students participate in one week of Nordic Outdoor Life involving skiing and other outdoor activities focusing on the Nordic concept of Friluftsliv.

For those who have had little experience in skiing, this week represents an opportunity to gain a new skill in the beautiful snowy mountains of Norway. For those who are experienced skiers, this week gives them the pleasure to help their friends and share their joy.

For everyone, this week is one of the most memorable experiences of their time at the College.

Being woken early in the morning by a Swiss, brushing your teeth standing next to a Dane, hurrying to class in the morning rush hour with an Uzbek, sitting next to an Angolan in class, being taught Economics by a Guatemalan, going to a Ghanaian to clear confusions in Maths, going for a run with a Brazilian; all these are little things that make this place beautiful. This place is special.
