Student Society Clubs
Want to participate in all the outdoor activities that Evenstad has to offer, but just can’t seem to fit all the equipment you need in your suitcase? The Outdoor Club is here for you! Equipment rentals are free with membership of ESS. This includes outdoor equipment, like kayaks, ice-fishing equipment, and bikes. We organize trips outside that anyone can attend (including non-members). They are posted in Evenstad Sports. Find me/us for tips to your next hike or if you would like to help make new adventures outside!
Do you want to meet the colorful community that calls Evenstad home? Get to know your fellow students with movie nights, quiz nights, language cafes, eco-philosophy cafes, and the annual trip to the Røros Christmas Market! No additional fees are required to participate. Sign up below to let us know if you are interested, if you have any other ideas for events, or if you’d like to host your own activity (such as sharing your own cultural holidays)!
Not a fan of playing in the snow? Evenstad campus still has you covered! We have indoor equipment like volleyball nets, a ping-pong table, and yoga mats, as well as a fully equipped fitness center with free weights, stationary bikes, treadmills, boxing, and more! Archery events are also running every week (weather dependent)! Let us know if you can help organize a competition or if there’s any new equipment you want on campus!
The Wildlife Society
Are you committed to a career in wildlife? Whether you want to go into research or management, join a group of like-minded students! The Wildlife Society is a global organization dedicated to helping students and young professionals network, find job opportunities, and learn new skills! Meetings are open to everyone and are held the last Thursday of the month, from 1530-1700, and feature a guest speaker. Members are required to pay for TWS membership dues to the parent organization or pay a semester chapter fee to the chapter, in order to formally join the student chapter.
Winter blues got you down? Why not learn to play the blues instead! The Music club aims to enhance creativity and musicality in Evenstad with instruments and equipment available for students including a full set of drums, microphones, pianos and guitars. Warm up your voice! We are planning to host several events to gather us all in the best social environment possible such as music quizzes, jam sessions and karaoke. Drums teaching lessons can be offered if you feel interested. No additional fees are required to participate.
Learn how to take better photographs! This club will meet every other week, Wednesdays from 1600-1700 and to discuss recent photos, interesting locations, and concepts of the art – from composition, to camera settings, to editing. Spend the next week using your newfound knowledge in the field! We have equipment available for you to use, but this club may have some travel expenses in addition.
The Brewing Club
Learn how to brew your own beer! We have all new equipment to make batches from both extract and all-grain, then taste your creations! We try all different kinds of beer, and need help with the brewing, fermenting, and bottling process. Afterwards, there is a tasting night as a group in Biotoppen, where you learn how to critique beer. Once you learn the ropes, feel free to get creative to try it yourself and try new flavors and types of beer! Expect to contribute between 25-50 NOK per batch.
