“I Will Try”
Arguably Best School Motto
Washington Post


According to our 2019 First Destination Survey 92.9 percent of our new graduates were either entering the military, the workforce, or graduate school within nine months of graduation.


At Norwich, you’ll develop leadership traits for every profession — discipline, integrity, confidence, loyalty and honor. If you choose a military path, Norwich is among the top 10 U.S. institutions for preparing commissioned officers. As a civilian, you’ll find impressive job opportunities through our career center and alumni connections with the CIA, FBI, and NSA, as well as numerous CEO’s, and entrepreneurs.

With an average net price of $25,581 (after grants and scholarships) and a commitment to review competitive awards, Norwich University has a financial aid program that positions us as one of the nation’s most affordable private educations.

Tri-Service Awards honor ROTC students and Corps of Cadets members for achievements academic, athletic and civic

Fast Company magazine cites Norwich President Dr. Mark Anarumo’s dorm stay as important act of leadership

Norwich President Dr. Mark Anarumo is spending this week (and maybe longer) among students in Dalrymple Hall, just as he spent a week in Wilson Hall earlier this semester. Both times, he stayed for leadership; he wanted to live the dorm life to better understand students’ needs, physical and emotional, and ensure they were met.

2021 Peace and War Virtual Summit to feature pair of discussions

Even amid polarized partisan division on everything from coronavirus relief to infrastructure proposals, Congress does have at least one bipartisan bill. It addresses Chinese competition in technology, and will get scrutiny Wednesday.

The same day, the Virtual Peace and War Summit at Norwich University will address the same U.S.-China technology race in two online sessions. The John and Mary Frances Patton Peace and War Center is presenting the summit, in the seventh week of an eight-week run.

Kpatcha Massina’s thirst for answers followed him into his dreams. 

The coronavirus pandemic had robbed the now-Norwich senior and Corps of Cadets member’s chance to travel to Burkina Faso to study food insecurity and film the documentary he’d imagined. Nevertheless, he was determined in a typically Norwich way, and no virus would crush his drive or dampen his fascination.

Talk on local food sourcing’s effect on resilience, Career and Internship sessions highlight week’s events

How much of that meal on your plate came from Vermont? If more of it were locally sourced would it help the state? Norwich University’s Academic Research Collaborative will explore this idea this week.

President, senior share stories of coping with coronavirus on public radio and podcast

The calendar keeps flipping forward, replacing winter with spring and planting Commencement just weeks off. But coping with the coronavirus pandemic continues to color Norwich University’s narrative and draw outside media interest.

Alaxey Germanovich, a Special Tactics combat controller, joined the U.S. Air Force for its action and challenges — few other jobs would let him see the world, train as he’d trained, do what he’d do. In April 2017, attached to 7th Special Forces Group, he deployed for the first time, heading to Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan, serving as the team’s joint terminal attack controller. He went right into the firing line, facing more than two weeks straight of constant gunfire, bombs and danger.
