Thanks for the pictures, dazzling.

It's a pity Mette-Marit was dresses so darkly again (+ black stockings) ... she nearly got lost on the dark stage. There was nearly no contrast between her and the stage.
Nevertheless it is nice to see her out again... it has been quite a quiet month for the Norwegian Royals so far.

I thought of that as well, while posting the pictures but then cant blame her, she couldnt of none on what the background of the stage would be besides getting lost against the background, I thought she looked nice though dressed abit too dark but then its winter

The University of Agder is Norway's seventh university. It received university status in state council on August 10. It has campuses in Kristiansand, Arendal and Grimstad.

Is it a popular university in Norway? what if the university doesnt receive status in state council? Btw, is this a university MM attended ( i thought i'd ask since she is opening it, but also it could do nothing with that)

It has roughly 8,000 students. It's not one of the more popular ones, as it was just "promoted" from being a college to an university - and the colleges aren't as popular with students as the universities are.

If it doesn't receive status in state council, it is a high likelihood that it hasn't done all the work to get it - all three of Norway's recent universities, Stavanger, ┼s and Agder, had to go through a fairly long process with evaluations, and recommendations to get even as far as the state council.

Mette-Marit attended the Agder university college in Grimstad, which is the University of Agder's predecessor. She studied for her examen philosophicum and the first year of becoming a construction engineer.

People who always dress in somber colours are sometimes very hung up about their figure... maybe it is the case
