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

A private military college nestled in the mountains where students can chose two different lifestyles and are able to fulfill their desires to become something in or out of the military; a very science-based university with great prominence in New England.

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

I highly suggest that the parents and the students are involved in the application process. Make sure that the institution has everything the child would want, otherwise they will be miserable there. Also make sure there are the best financial accomodations as possible so that the school is not able to reel a student in with false promises. Visiting the campus is a must--it may look beautiful in pictures but turn out to be a disaster once the student actually gets there. Once getting settled into a college lifestyle, incorporate things familiar to the student so that they don't get homesick. Make sure to become actively involved in campus activities--you could potentially meet a best friend there! Stay active and don't fall into a sedantary routine because it's easy to become lazy at school. Stick hard to the studies and be sure to get out once in a while to avoid cabin fever or an overload of stress. Stay in contact with your family, but don't communicate too much because you need to start your own life and become responsible for yourself and your happiness!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Norwich University is its adherance to long-standing traditions. People become more disciplined and learn what it's like to focus on studying because there isn't a whole bunch of things to do in the small town where the university is located. People make lifelong friendships there and the alumni are very supportive of the students that go there.

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

Norwich University will teach you the standard of how to be a successful officer in any of the Branches of the Armed Forces. You will make friends that you will always be able to depend on. Norwich is DIFFERENT because of the unity of the students (especially on the Corps of Cadets side). There is a sense of Pride and Honor with these students. You really come to love and understand Norwich after you graduate. It will draw you in deep and Always be with you.

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

Find a way to make money work. There is no price for the right education. If the school feels right , find a way. Work, save, loans, Military will help. DO NOT SETTLE! If you have your heart set on a cetain place go for it. Actions speak louder than words. WOrk for what you want. Laziness goes nowhere.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Adjusing to the military life freshmen year. There are a few students/Cadets that get power hungry. Reeling these students in is hard, but you will always have friends to depend on to get you through.

Most of my classmates had little tolerance for women in mechanical engineering but equality in civil engineering.

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

College will make you into a stronger person. I didn't like things about my school, like my classmates, but I had friends and professors there to help me excel and do things I never thought of before. My school taught me not only my choice about a major, but how to have strong leadership skills and succeed in all aspects of my life. That is jsut as important as a homework problem.

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

Find a college that suits you as a student. Make sure you are in an environment that will not only enable you to study without to many distractions, but be able to have a social life so as not to be stressed out all the time. To live the college experience depends on how you go about it. You can either live in your room, live out on the town, or find a balance between the two.

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

How hard it would be, and how to better deal with the situations that occur.

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

I would simply tell them to ask teachers for advice and visit the school(s) and after visiting, you will know if that is the school you want to further your education. Making the most of the college experience is all about getting involved and just enjoying every minute at school, because college is supposed to be fun as much as it supposed to set you up for your future. -Nick Bakos

At Norwich, there are a lot of students who are worried more about their ego than focusing on class.

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

A military college that emphasizes leadership and service to community/country; for this purpose we train hard physically and academically in order to become leaders in our field whether that be in the military or civilian life.

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

College is what you make of it. If you do not care about education and simply want the experience then go to a school that is inexpensive and has no standard for academic excellence. If however you want an education but think it might be tough to balance a party life style with school, then STAY AWAY from schools known for that type of society. If you work hard you WILL get into a school and you WILL graduate, but schools do not like slackers. The more you work, the more you will get out of your college experience. So find the school that will make you work the hardest!

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

Although academics are said to ALWAYS come first, the leadership in the Corps of Cadets often make that statement untrue. We are told to make sure our academics are taken care of, but we are told to go to so many formations and extra activities involving the Corps of Cadets that sometimes it makes it difficult to do that.

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

The truth about Norwich is that there is what Jackman Hall(admin) says and what the Corps really is... we are group of loud, rowdy obnoxious individuals who like to drink and smoke. We dream of freedom and getting loose at a normal school where even our freshman can drink normal seniors under the table. However, if you ask Jackman Hall, we are prime leaders fit for the future of our military. We are those things that they say we are but we like to have fun too.

What's unique about your campus?

Norwich is the type of place for those who want to join the military but don't want to go to the academy. We produce excellent leaders through the Corps of Cadets enough though it has gotten soft in the last few years. The Corps teaches freshmen how to be in the military and then how to become a leader. You can only lead if you know how to follow. "Lead me, Follow me, or Get the hell out of my way." Gen. George S. Patton.
