4th of October is a day marked in history. Legends have been born on this day, and legends have passed away on this day. On October the 4th in 1824, Mexico became a republic, and Portugal became a republic the same day in 1910. Sputnik was shot into space by the Soviet Union on this day in 1957. In 1993 the Black Hawk Down episode happened on this date.
But why are we talking about 4th of October? That’s because we have put our dear Oktoberfest on this day! Our Oktoberfest where you dress up in your Oktoberfest costume. On 4th of October Aud. Max. will be ready for a big party! There will be dining tables and you will of course get a seidel when you get to the door. Who will break their seidel this year?

Sons of the night, the boys from Tåsen, yes, Klovner I Kamp is coming to Ås!
It all started in a small apartment at Bjølsen in Oslo in 1994. The inspiration was Norwegian rock, britcore and the political left side when Dr. S and Alis founded Klovner I Kamp. They have, together with Dansken og Fingern, made the legendary albums "Schwin" and "Bjølsen Hospital", and they won the Norwegian award Spellemannspris in 2002 with "Bjølsen Hospita".
Klovner I Kamp has been huge within Norwegian music. They took a break from music after their success with "Ørnen Tek Ikkje Unga", but their break ended in 2013 with several sold out concerts after encouragement from their fans. But their fight was not over, and they released "Langt å gå" and "Kjærlighetstriologien" after a short time, and they recently released the single "Hollywood".
Klovner I Kamps music has, with a big portion of nerves and charm, moved from the original political focus to more humoristic and more ‘sing a long’ songs. Who hasn’t sung their heart out to "Valsen", "Glade Dager" and "Syng" at a preparty at Pentagon, been up late at night and sung a long with "Nattens Sønner" or threatened their younger siblings with "Kaninkoker 2"?
Klovner I Kamp are living legends in Norwegian rap, and are staying relevant with their sometimes dark but impressionable and always catchy lyrics. They have toured back and forth in Norway, and with the concert some of you might remember from UKA in Ås 2014, we
promise they won’t hold anything back this time either.
Don’t let this concert pass you by, be at Studentsamfunnet in Ås 08.09 and watch Klovner I Kamp kick off the fall semester!
For the longest time New York City has been seen as the world’s melting pot. What people don’t know is that Ås is an even bigger apple than New York!
On the 30th of August Samfunnet invites you to International Bodega, where there will be a world of cultural exchange! Bring a friend and a couple of great stories you can share among pals in the Bodega. Who knows, maybe you will learn some new words and expressions in another language this evening? It never hurts to have some new linguistic skills you can show off on future vacations and on parties later this semester!
So grab a friend or two, and we can all share our stories together!
Pom Poko is playing in Festsalen and what's better than a hipster theme party?
Is it the world known Japanese movie we’re talking about? Is it a Pokémon we have captured? No, of course it’s the Norwegian “Urørtbandet” we’re talking about, and they’ll be in Ås just after the summer!
What a great way to start the semester! Cheers!
Since the band started up less than a year ago, it has been embraced by the music industry and they have been predicted to have a bright future.
This summer they will be playing at Roskilde, Øya and Slottfjell, so we can safely assume that Pom Poko will be ready after this summer.
Pom Poko’s music is very playful, unpretentious and exciting, and gives the listener an experience of cool riffs and absurd twists even Johan Cruyff would be proud of!
The vocalist Ragnhikd Fangel sings an unprededictable punk mix.
The bands live performances are praised both within and outside Norway, and the latest review described them as the festivals best set at the huge festival ‘The Great Escape’ in Great Brittain.
We’re sure this is going to be a concert you wouldn’t want to miss, so make sure to be at Samfunnet in August!
Pom Poko, we choose you!!!
“What am I going to wear?” “Is there something more than a concert going on at Samfunnet?” Just relax – it’s a theme party!

Did you know that Samfunnet in Aas has its own production of self-composed songs, made by students from NMBU throughout the ages? This songbook goes by the name “Stentor”, the first edition being released in 1937. From the early ages of Stentor-traditions, prior to the common use of music stereos, it was up to the students themselves to create a musical atmosphere at Samfunnet.
On Wednesday, August the 23rd, Samfunnet has arranged Stentor-bodega. You will have the opportunity to join in and sing old songs from the green book with your fellow students. If you own your own Stentor-book, feel free to bring it! You can also buy the Stentor-book at the Bodega this particular evening, or borrow it by the use of your student-card. We look forward to sing from the top of our lungs, old and dear songs from the Stentor-book with you. See you at Stentor-bodega!

Another goal of the book is to enlighten Norwegians about the challenges international meet when they come to Norway.
