Norwich University Reviews
I loved that this school is so small. The classes are sometimes filled completely but they are still manageable, new buildings and repairs are being constructed so that may not be a permanent issue. But, I loved that you could still ask the professor questions in class or see them during office hours for help on your work. As far as that goes, they are all very willing to help a student in their understanding. The few things I'd like to see change includes the organization of the Registers office and the confusion they have with class schedules and transfer credits especially. In addition, I would like to see the treatment of Civilian students change as they are not included in the updated information of the campus and are always "out of the loop" because they are not part of the Corps or Cadets.
My experience so far at Norwich is like no other. The unity and family like connections that I see throughout campus is something I aspire to be. The student ran leaders are truly men and woman who will make a difference one day because for simply being a cadet program they take their jobs seriously. The amount of activities and resources offered to assist and keep people busy is almost overwhelming, but there is a spot for anyone who does come here. The food however could be a little bit better because some days it truly is disgusting.
Small university where you know almost everybody. Core is very important and most think they are better than every civilian. Fortunately, not all core members are like this. They have a bomb architecture program and nursing program. The other programs dont get as much credit as these two do. The professors are strange. Some are very strict for their classes and others could careless about what you do. I have had the chance to have awesome professors though that do care about your experience and grade. Also the food is terrible. The library and writing center are amazing and they are willing to help you with anything you need.
