The NU Experience (Applicants Only)

Open House vs. NU Experience: What is the difference?

We are often asked what the difference is between an Open House event and The NU Experience. The main difference is that The NU Experience takes place during the week (Wednesday/Thursday), while an Open House takes place on a weekend (Friday/Saturday). Both offer overnight opportunities, The NU Experience provides an additional opportunity to spend the night on campus and experience Norwich while campus is active and classes are in session. Families are welcome to participate in the NU Experience events on Thursday, which includes a complimentary breakfast. The overnight portion is offered to students only.
