Norwich University celebrated Commencement on April 29th in Shapiro Field House on the Northfield, Vermont campus.  Graduating were 677 students from both bachelor’s and master’s programs across campus and online. The ceremony included graduates from the classes of 2020 and 2021, who did not have the opportunity to walk with their classes due to Covid-19.

Norwich University commissioned 152 graduates from the Class of 2023 into the U.S. armed services in a Joint Commissioning Ceremony: Army ROTC, 107; Air Force ROTC, 16; and Naval ROTC which will commission 29 graduates.
