Student buddy program

The buddies have planned a week with lots of fun activities during the week of semester start (i.e. barbequing, bar-to-bar, treasure hunt). We want to give new students a good start, and hope that the buddy week can help you make good friendships in class, but also across disciplines. All arrangements are free over charge.

The buddy programme will be published soon.

Each USN campus has their own Facebook group where students can post information and ask questions. Check out the campus Notodden facebook group.
