NTNU, and Trondheim in particular, is well-known for a vibrant and lively student community with a strong spirit of volunteerism. As a result, there are literally hundreds of different associations, clubs, sport teams and organizations you can join in your free time, which is also an excellent way to make friends.
Most of these will be present on campus August 17., and will have stands outdoors where you can wander about and talk to representatives from any organization that catches your fancy. Representatives from certain services at NTNU and SiT, such as the Office of International Relations, will also be present.
The Office of International Relations will give a presentation (on campus) in English on the various student associations and organisations available.
