The campus visit is the most important part of the college selection process.

Norwich offers a comprehensive and customized visitation program for students and their families. From our day visits to our overnight program to an open house/showcases to our leadership challenge weekend, we provide you with the information you need to determine if you’re a good fit for Norwich and, more importantly, if we’re a good fit for you.

    What happens at FLC?

    WEEK 1

    A typical day begins at 5:30 a.m. and includes morning physical fitness followed by training sessions that focus on individual and team skills.

Evening sessions focus on interactive classroom instruction on the methods, traits and principles of leadership, and effective communication.

    WEEK 2

    Participants confront physical challenges such as climbing and rappelling the cliffs of Deer Leap Mountain. They practice wilderness survival skills during a three-day “in the woods” overnight exercise, and then test what they’ve learned during the Bushmaster Course. Teams spend their final days competing in the Olympic Challenge Course, a drill competition, and skit night.
