Before heading to the USA, Simen played for the soccer club Sprint-Jeløy in the Norwegian 4th division. It was in the summer of 2018 when he decided that studying in the USA could be something for him. After a meeting with CSUSA, his decision landed on Millikin University and Decatur, Illinois.

“Going to the USA is one of the things I’m most proud of. I have CSUSA to thank for it because before I had that meeting with CSUSA, I thought being a student-athlete was only for those who aimed to be drafted. The four years I had were filled with a lot of learning and fun. The best part of it is all the memories and friendships I will carry with me for the rest of my life.”

My best memory is from my freshman year when we went into golden goal overtime for the first time. I recorded my first assist, and we won the game. Seeing the whole team running towards you was something truly special.
