Norwich University Reviews

The community is close and respectful. I was greeted by upper class men with smiles and comforting direction. Norwich offers a vast selection of studies and professional guidance to make sure you as a student are where you should be. Students are proud of Norwich's tradition and what it stands for and so are the alumni who support it. I can't imagine myself anywhere else.

As a college athlete, who lives on campus, if I could change anything, it would be that dining services had extended hours. Late afternoon practices make it impossible to get to before it closes and eating before is not an option for a good workout. Athletes then have to go elsewhere and pay out of pocket to eat; this can become expensive.

I love Norwich University! The campus is generally pretty quiet, which allows me to focus more on my academics and really achieve greatness.
Norwich University is an amazing school. It’s the oldest private military college in the US, although you don’t have to be in the military to attend, you may be a civilian. Everyday Norwich instills skills into their students that will make them better students in and outside of the classroom. Leadership is one of the biggest qualities students gain from attending here. We’re located in the middle of a mountain valley and the seasons are breathtaking here.
