Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

How will you pursue your passions?

What kind of clubs and activities are at Norwich?

Our campus may be remote and rural, but our activity is electric, eclectic and constant. Campus buzzes with activity as students participate in more than 80 clubs and organizations.

In this video, you’ll meet three students in long lists of clubs reflecting the university’s traditions of physical activity and civic service.

Madison Cook, a sophomore international studies and Spanish major in the Corps of Cadets is in the Student Government Association, which helped bring the popular Dunkin’ Donuts kiosk to campus; the Maroon and Gold Key Club, a collection of campus ambassadors; Buddy Up, a youth mentoring collective; and the Spanish Club.

Cook said the Corps encourages cadets to join clubs to pursue interests, make friends and relax, especially during rookdom, the challenging first-year transition to the military lifestyle. Celenee Noriega, a sophomore criminal justice and Spanish major in the Ski and Spanish clubs and the Black Student Union said a fall Club Fair puts information where new students can easily find it. (2019’s fair was on the Wise Campus Center green).

Jake Roberts, a senior criminal justice major and cadet, is Maroon and Gold Key Club president and is in the Soccer and Rock Climbing clubs, the Center for Civic Engagement and the Criminal Justice Student Association. Roberts said the latter club let him build career knowledge through informal information sessions with professors and professionals and, this year, a Washington, D.C., trip to tour federal law enforcement agencies.

“You get to go in an explore all these different kinds of things you might not get to see at a different university,” he said. “And they open up all the paths you have when you graduate from Norwich.”
