Arguably Best School Motto

Discipline, integrity, confidence, loyalty and honor 
Norwich Leadership Traits

the top 10

Commitment to Affordability

After all grants (Norwich, Federal Student Aid, State grants and aid, VA benefits, ROTC scholarship and other outside scholarships) were applied, the average net price to residential first-year students was $19,713.
