Dorm Break-ins
Stereo equipment, bikes, food and drink have been stolen from Frydenbø student housing. This January, a TV and a VCR were taken as well. This was the fourth time in a year that the common room has been burgled.
– We bolted down everything of value. The thief was professional. He new exactly which of our new equipment was most valuable, says a frustrated Kenneth Fedje Gurvin, who is dorm director of Frydenbø.
– Last November we had bought some sheep heads for a house party, but they were taken before we had a chance to cook them. Another time someone broke in and drank up all our wine, explains Gurvin.
SiB has installed a new central alarm system. Living at Frydenbø remains popular, and the positive attitude of the residents has not been diminished by the reoccurring break-ins.

More will Study Abroad
The number of students studying abroad has nearly doubled over the last ten years, to almost 15,000. An additional 4,000 complete part of their degree abroad.
– We’ve has a significant increase in the number of students seeking advice on what steps are necessary to study abroad, says Steen Buus Jensen, Secretary General of ANSA, a student association for students studying abroad. He believes that many choose to study outside of Norway because it will give them the edge in the job market. The government has been trying to make study abroad more accessible.
– It seems as if they have finally realized that we don’t have a large enough capacity, especially in areas such as physical therapy and medicine, adds Jensen. He is under the impression that most who study abroad come from families with means.
– Many schools charge high tuition, and the student loan office has strict guidelines about what can be financed. Often, the parents’ income will be decisive in studying abroad, says Jensen.

Laptops for Everybody?
The number of computers for students at the School of Social Sciences will be reduced from 133 to 100. Instead, the faculty directors would like more students to buy their own laptop computers, that can be used anywhere.
– This represents a major ideological shift when the faculty passes on costs to students. This can have the unfortunate effect of creating a class division between those who have means to buy a PC and those who do not, says Bård Singstad, from the IKT committee at SV.
