Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

Get ready to step out of your comfort zone. That’s what this unique experience is all about. Rook Orientation will take you beyond the basics of college life to learning basic military skills and knowledge, Norwich history and our Honor Code. You’ll push your mind—and your body. Orientation ends with a Corps tradition: the Dog River Run. You’ll emerge from this one-mile journey in the Dog River wet, cold, tired, and full of pride and accomplishment.

Challenges and opportunity await; the world needs your strength, talent, grit and compassion more than ever. Following an experiential learning tradition more than 200 years strong, Norwich will prepare you to lead and serve in a career you love — in the private sector, public sector or the armed forces. We invite you to join us. Live, learn and lead at Norwich.
