It’s a small college but there are many different things offered at Norwich. All of your professors are very open and communicate clearly about their office or drop in hours and if you send an email they usually reply within a day even on Saturday’s 😂. Another thing that’s great about Norwich is the respect and values taught here, it is a military college but even as a civilian the core values and ideals that the cadet kids learn are carried through into how the civilians act and are treated which then helps in everyday life and career/job possibilities. The main values and ideals instilled into everyone at Norwich help build a better future of citizens. Lastly, the views and location of Norwich, while in a small town called Northfield are breathtaking, Dole Mountain is visible from almost anywhere outside on campus and watching the trees change colors every year and than grow back in the spring is a breathtaking experience.

I entered Norwich as a Rook, a candidate to become a cadet in the Corps of Cadets, and I did not regret my choice. The training was rigorous. The academics was worse. We were pushed to our limits everyday. It was horrible at the beginning but slowly things start to pay off. I learned so much about brotherhood, leadership, discipline, and determination that it changed my life and my perception of the world. I realized that people talk about all those things without having a clue what they were talking about. And by coming to Norwich I realized what it truly is to be a leader. This is all thanks to the phenomenal cadre staff that I had the bliss to be led by. They changed my life. God bless the cadre, God bless Norwich. Norwich forever.
So as a freshman Norwich was very accommodating and I love the smaller class sizes. As a civilian there are some things to be aware of but if you pay attention they do an excellent job of informing you of them.

I do have a beef with their COVID handling, I'm from the West Coast and when they announced they were closing campus it was on a Friday when I petitioned to stay they granted it on the following Tuesday, I needed it Monday so I could make travel and lodging arrangements. By Tuesday I had already rented a car, packed my room and made travel arrangements to return to my parents house.
