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

College visits and overnight stays are the most improtant part of the decision process, get a sense of how the classes are, what the student life is like, and what kind of activities offered on campus. Once you have made your choice organize your class schedule to balance classes evenly through the week, it will make getting all your work done easier. join as many clubs and teams as possible, get involved in everything. Don't be afraid to try something new. To get a good college experience you actually have to go out and experience it. But don't forget that you are there for an education as well.

What's unique about your campus?

The sense of community, brotherhood, and loyalty among the students and alumni.

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

Facilities opperations is very slow to clean up snow and there is not a lot of parking space so it is often hard to find a spot to park, especially in the winter.

Being the first private military academy.

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

Offers both structured military side of life as well as a typical "civilian" lifestyle.

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

To students looking for the right college: I urge you to fully research the field in which you intend to study, and the program in which you have been accepted. Do not base you decision on the social qualities of the school or on it's location, but solely on the future in which it offers you. College is only a stepping stone in your life and will be over in a few short years. Don't ruin your chance by spending your time developing an over-eccentric social life, for when you leave the school you cannot take it with you, but you can take a diploma.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

My school is very cold, sometimes depressing. There is not much to do, no nightlife outside the school. The campus is usually always dead.

Make sure you visit more then one college. Apply to as many as you can, and be sure you research the college/university before making the descision to apply there.

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

Its location it terrible, small town with nothing to do. Even the neighboring towns are dull, the best place to go for nightlife is an hour away.

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

You will get what you give from a college experience. If you want to get the party life, you will come away from college with the experience that you wanted. But you won't be competitive for any good jobs after words. If however, you choose a college for its academic programs, or for their reputation for giving a certain type of job afterwords, and you work hard to achieve those goals, you will be competitive for what ever field of work you desire. It is better to be a hard worker, than a lazy smart person. Therefore apply for schools that you know will push you to work hard and give as much as you expect to get out of a college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

For those of us who are contracted with the U.S. Military, we get hands on training to become officers. We are constantly being taught how to be leaders, both in and out of the field.

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

I believe one of the most important thing to do is visit the school. You need to put yourself in the environment of the student at that school. Also, sit in on a class or two. Shadow a student on thier day to day activities. Speak with Porfessors about the classes.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the type of people. Everyone wants to help everyone. No one is afraid to put themseleves in harms way for others. We have many vol. firefighters, including myself, and emts.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Being the oldest private military college in the United States. Behind West Point providing the most Army officers. Being the birth place of the Reserve Officer Training Corps.

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

If you are planning on attending college in the next few years DO IT! Choose a major and stick with it. Businesses are looking for college graduate, master holders, and people that have their PHD's. It all starts with a college education. Have fun and a good time, but remember you are in college to get good grades and get out and make something of yourself in the real world.

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

I wish that I had known that there would be nothing to do here on the weekends. That when you need something you have to take a 20 minute car ride to wal-mart. That there is nothing in the state of Vermont.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Norwich's administration runs the school like a business and is losing the school's proud traditions; this will haunt the school in future years as alumni stop supporting the instituiton.

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

Think hard and objectively about your "big-picture" priorities and keep in mind that your classmates can make or break your college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

The bonds formed by hardship endured by members of organizations like the Ranger Company, the Artillery Battery, and the Army ROTC Department are the only reason I'm still here.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

It's cold, the days are long, and the academics at the school are great. The professor's take time out of thier schedule to meet up with us when we need the help.

Describe the students at your school.

Some are quite and content, and the others can be loud and rude. I all depends on how you take things,

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

I would have to say: - look for a college that has an amount of people that you are comfortable with - look for a college that is somewhat financially easy to pay for - look for a college that is far enough from your home that you are comfortable to be at - enjoy the time at college but make sure not to get into to much trouble
