MHS has many nice people around who will guide you through what is going on if you look lost. I like the Lunch time, even if I don‘t eat we just meet at the cafeteria and talk.The international student community is amazing. We have grown together like a big family. I feel like I get to know countries and cultures all over the world, and not just beautiful Norway.
