What is Fadderullan?
Fadderullan is the name of the Buddy Weeks at BI Norwegian Business School, and is arranged in collaboration with BISO - BI Student Organization. Fadderullan was founded back in 2005 as a new concept for the Buddy Week at campus Oslo after BI merged the four campuses in the region and moved to Nydalen. During the past few years we've also taken campus Bergen, Trondheim and Stavanger into the warmth.
Since the beginning, Fadderullan has grown to become Norway's biggest student-driven event, with over 4000 participants each year - in Oslo alone. Even though all of BI's campuses are now merged under one brand, each campus has their own independent management, and are making their own Buddy Weeks based on local ideas, wishes and needs. Fadderullan's main Board is located in Oslo, and in 2020 we've entered a closer cooperation with the other campuses to strengthen the brand even more. This way we'll be able to make magical moments for everyone, regardless of where you are located.
The purpose of Fadderullan is to give all new students an amazing start to their student life by giving them a welcome they'll never forget. During the Buddy Week, old and new students will meet and get to know each other across interests and courses. You will also be introduced to the many things BI has to offer, as well as how to get started on your studies more efficient.
With help from our amazing Ambassadors and Buddies, we at Fadderullan will do our very best for you to be taken good care of and get to know your fellow students. We're looking forward to see you!
