What can I do with my buddy? It's up to you.

Don't be afraid: Our demands of you as a buddy are not too overwhelming. The threshold to become a buddy are, and should be, minimal; As long as you want to make some international friends and contribute that they get a good start and a great semester in Trondheim, you are qualified! There are no requirements about how often and how much time you should spend with your buddy, however, it would be nice if you could meet at least once a month, so you could get to know each other. What you do, is up to you and your buddy, and your desires. Some prefer to meet for lunch, socialize in a café and go to a party now and then, while others are quite adventurous and go for hiking in Bymarka or a weekend at a NTNUI 'koie'.
