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.

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.
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.
