Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

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

Brochures and view books are informative, but a campus visit brings alive everything you’ve read about and helps you to determine if Norwich is the best place for you to spend the next four years of your life.

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.

We think a campus visit is so important that we’ll award you a $1,000 scholarship if you attend an official Admissions campus visit during or after the Spring semester of your junior year in high school.
