Saint Nicholas Church, is located in the harbour town of Bogense on the Danish island of Funen. It was built in 1406 on the remains of a 12th-century Romanesque church. In the mid-15th century, various additions were made including the tower which unusually is at the east end of the church. The tall spire served as a landmark for shipping. Comprehensive restoration work was completed in 2010. Artefacts include a 16th-century altar (1588), a 13th-century baptismal font, and a carved pulpit from 1604.

They've been very helpful in all the times I needed, including on-campus work authorizations and transfer of sponsorship. They're always very quick to answer phone calls, though e-mail and in person visits can some times take a little longer. Not too much though. I'm satisfied.

Overall the staffs here are very friendly and helpful when you walk-in and request for any services. The waiting time could be long due to the amount of requests that they have occasionally but in general they make sure we walk out with the information we need. However, one thing that could not get the fifth star from me is that the communication should also be more consistent through phone call request. Even though the people I have spoken with on the phone are very nice, caring, and patient, I might end up getting different answer for the same question every time I call in to check something. Hope this feedback helps!

I don't think they even deserve a one star rating. BU ISSO office is the worst, they are not helpful and takes a long time to respond to any messages or emails. The student advisors are useless and does not care about their students. It is just ridiculous how useless they are! I really don't understand why BU doesn't do anything even when there are so much complaints about the ISSO.

Not sure why there’s enormous backlash over here but I have had no problems with the office. I understand BU has a large number of international students and hence the office can be busy always but I’ve always found them acommodating and helpful be it with travel signatures, CPT or OPT. This is in addition to the genuinely nice staff from the front desk employees to the amazing advisors.

School is 4 weeks away and I have yet to receive my new I-20, let alone even apply for my F-1. I don't want special treatment in any just because I am an international student, but some things NEED to be done quick, and are extremely time sensitive. I was super excited to go to BU, as it was my first choice, but now I'm having doubts about their efficiency. Regardless, even if I still wanted to, I might not be able to enroll as again, 4 weeks until classes start and no I-20, so...

Trondenes Church

Trondenes Church is the northernmost medieval stone church of Norway. Though frequently mentioned as a 13th-century church, dating based on dendrochronology places its completion shortly after 1434. Compared to the other ten north Norwegian medieval stone churches, Trondenes church is well preserved and the exterior is close to the original state. The nave is 22.6 metres long and the chancel is 13.5 metres, making it one of the largest medieval churches of rural Norway. In the late Medieval period, Trondenes served as the main church centre of Northern Norway.

The church is especially known for its rich decorations, including three gothic triptychs, one of which is made by the German Hanseatic artist Bernt Notke. The baroque pulpit is equipped with an hourglass to allow the minister to time long sermons. The organ dates from the late 18th century. In the choir section, one can see remnants of medieval frescoes.

The church is probably the third church on the site, the first stave church was built in the 11th century, the second in the 12th. The second church was fortified with stone walls and ramparts, remnants of which can be seen around the church.The church used to have a little turret, which was demolished. Now the bells are rung from a little tower in the graveyeard.
