What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself that it is important to always try your best, to be open to new situations, and to always be willing to ask for help. College is a different experience, and you ahve to be willing to open up to a lot of new things and deal with whatever comes your way. Take challenging classes and know that you can't be good at everything. It is important to communicate with the administration and find out about financial aid and registration guidelines well in advance of deadlines because they often don't inform students well. Keep your family close even though you are away, you will learn to appreciate them more when they are not around all the time. Talk to your professors and get help before it's too late. Find things to get involved in, and make a good network of friends that will help you get through. Make the best out of every situation and know that nothing is ever going to be perfect, you have to live with whatever happens.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Financial aid office sucks and there is a lack of communication in the administration.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do your homework on schools. Don't choose one because a friend is going, or thaqt you think it is a cool place. Set goals in High School, and work to achieve them. Think about a career that fits you, but know that you whole liife isn't based on what you decide at age 18.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The cold...I love snow, but it can drag you down sometimes. You have to b ready for it, and understand the nature of the climate.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone that has an interest in the military as a career, or that wants the discipline of that lifestyle to assist him/her in suceeding at college. It is highly competitive, but people do bond and help more than my friends tell me about "standard" colleges.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You should be proud of yourself, you have come a long way in your education. You should focus on developing a strong study habits and organizing yourself for the next four years. You have chosen a career path that fits you perfect, nursing, helping others. Keep this in mind as you go through the next four years of education because they will be difficult but you can do it. Stay focused and remember to have fun with your learning. Work hard and it will pay off. Go beyond what is required of you to pass your classed because it will pay off further down the road. Yes, the road will be bumpy, long, and may seem imposible sometimes throughout this period but you can overcome anything that you put your mind to. Helping others is a gift that you have and you will reach your goals in life by working hard and breaking things down into small pieces so that you don't feel overwhelmed by it. Life is difficult and is not meant to be easy. I am proud of you and you will see a bright future up ahead. :)

What's unique about your campus?

The clinical experience for nurses starts early on in the education years, which is important to me being a hands on learner.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Norwich University is a military college just like a military academy. Our daily schedules include events that you would not find on any other regular college schedules. Freshmen are treated differently, while upperclassmen have a lot more freedom. Every morning we wake up to a howitzer, which is a cannon, for reveille formation. We wear uniforms every day and we have to salute officers; something you never do in a regular college. Class sizes are really small too, so you get a lot of one on one time with your professors.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To be prepared for a complete culture shock. I have to train in all sorts of environment conditions. Learn how to do physical training when I'm sick, in cold weather, and exercises when I'm done eating. Definitely break in military boots ahead of time. Go running on hills and rocky terrain. Be prepared for mental and physical stress, and my body to be sore everyday. Learn how to eat really fast. Use a watch, it will my best friend. Learn how to change really fast, in and out different uniforms. Learn how to stay awake and be sleep deprived. Get used to limited external communication, because as a freshmen you only have one phone call a week. Bascially, be prepared for anything out of the ordinary! Even though life as a freshmen is very secluded, challenging, and restricted; just remember everyone else is doing it too, and at the end everything is well worth it ! You end up having friends for life that will have your back for anything, and you end up having great military stories!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you're not looking for a military lifestyle, this school is not for you. If you plan to Join the Corps of Cadets be prepared to wake up at 5 in the morning for physical training. A lot of the training that you do in your respective ROTC is somewhat physically challenging. Also being in the Corps of Cadets you have to be used to living a fast paced life. If you are not used to getting up early, wearing a uniform everyday, and doing a lot of physical training, this scool is not for you

Describe the students at your school.

They all seek education and friendships. Everyone in the class wants everyone else to pass, so when there is a problem with one students grades, there a lot of students that offer their time and dedication.

It is the oldest private military college in the United States. They keep all the student mentally and physically prepared for the military. Norwich University also has the biggest alumni network known. Every student that graduates meets at least 5 alumni from the school, and they all get along and if a job was ever needed, the alumni would always try their hardest to find them a job.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do not look for a school that is known for partying and drinking. It is really hard to concentrate when there are constant parties. Also, look for a school that has a good alumni network, because in the long run you would always have a back-up plan. Visit the school web sites often and see how many updates in the schools events there are. This would tell you that the school spends quality time in trying to inform all visitors about the events taken place. The last thing to look for in the right college is, of course, the education. Look for a school that offers the major desired and a good internship program.

Students who are ready for the professional world. Students who have gained experience in the professional career that they majored in. students with a hard work ethic, dedication, and honesty.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Advice? Well for starters, I would do a simple college search. With this search type in the information about a school that means the most to you: location, majors, sports, etc. Once you have created a list of school that you seem to be interested it, check them out! Go to their websites, see what they have to offer, compare them with other schools and narrow your list down to three, four, or even five schools. This next step is the most important; VISIT THEM! Call the school up and scheduel an on campus visit, tour, and interview with the head professor of your desired major. Find out what they offer in terms of financial aid, scholarships, extra help, even extra credit. Once you have visited the schools that made you list, choose at least three of them that you realy want to go to, and send them applications. Yes I said three. If you are sending to only one school, whats going to happen if you didn't get accepted and all the other application deadlines have gone by? Once you have been accepted and made the final decision, start networking. Find other students and start making friends!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any one who is intersted in a military profession. Has a great "Corpse of Cadets". Any one who wants a small school community (about 2,000), in a small town. Anyone who like the outdoors, there are plenty of hiking and swimming areas around.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is what you make it. When you're looking for a school, look aggressively. Don't think that you can't get to that school just because of the price tag. Most schools give out additional scholarships and grants at the end of your freshman year depending on your GPA. Pick a place that you absolutely love, and can see yourself being happy there. Don't be pressured to go somewhere that you won't be happy at. When you decide where you're going, go there! Don't be afraid if you're going far away from home or that you won't know anyone. That's what college is about. Get involved on campus, playing a sport or joining a club is a great way to meet new people. Try new things. If you need help, ask for it. People will help you if you just go and ask for it. School work above all. You're paying for an education, that should be your main focus. Study groups will help you tremendously. Remember to call home every once and a while, it will keep you sane and let your parents know that you're okay.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I I wish I would have known how much work college here would be. Your success is solely your own. Advisors are there to help you when it's convenient to them, professors teach but some professors are learning the course material as you are learning it. Especially for the engineering students. The Corps was a great lifestyle choice, and it's easy to juggle that, schoolwork and a varsity sport. It's a really expensive school for what you put yourself through to succeed here..

What kind of person should not attend this school?

You should definately not come here if you are not interested in being challenged or working hard. Whether it be as a Traditional or Corps student, you will be challenged mentally and emotionally, physically if you play a Sport of if you're in the Corps. This school is all about personal success and leadership, but also about family and traditions. May be a military school, but we're think outside the box and we like to have fun. We make the best out of every situation. It's hard work but it's definately worth it.
