One thing that resonates the most with NU is the family atmosphere. Whether you are from a class in the mid 1900's or present day, there is an inseparable bond that binds us all together. I was a student that tragically was impacted by the results of a car accident. I had professors, a Chaplain, and staff of the university rally around me and helped me get across the finish line. This enabled me to graduate on time with my class. I have had professors come in on their own personal time (off the clock) or stopped by my deck to visit my room in the barracks. You know the professors care and they always push you to be successful. The growing threat to the university's Corps of Cadets is moving forward amidst the hazing hysteria and lawsuits. Many changes occured following my Freshman year that things seemed so alien to me by the time I graduated. Training time was cut, Cadre were micromanaged, Rookdom was shortened, and standards reduced.
Review Your College
Attending Norwich University has been a very challenging and great experience so far. Norwich is a unique school because it offers just more than academics, it offers you the opportunity to become a leader and to be a better citizen. So far, I have already become better in many aspects in my life. This school pushes you physically and mentally from Day 1. I live over 4,000miles away from home and I became homesick. Living far from home surely is a challenge and with the people that surround me, they helped me get through and overcome this obstacle. Not only that, physically, I was having a real rough time with endurance and cardio, but with self-motivation and the support from my rook brothers and sisters, I was able to improve my run time in no time. This school has something that no other school has and that's motivation and teamwork. This place puts you to the test and will surely make a great impact on your life. This place is what you make of it.
Norwich University offers a calm, kind, and great environment for college students. The amount of activities and opportunities that the school offers helps with studying for classes. The school offers so many resources to help expand education. The professors are easy to work with when it comes to academics. The overall experience at Norwich University is great for all diversities.
