Norwich University cadets begin their college careers with Rook Week, a period of intense training and acclimation to the new lifestyle they’re about to lead.

It’s a tough week with a lot to learn and get used to, but at the end they get a chance to blow off some steam with the annual Dog River Run.

Now that the Class of 2017 rooks have been recognized as cadets, here is a video that gives a bird’s-eye view of a greener group of students on a warm August day.
