From the simplest tools — slips of paper and stubby eraserless pencils — and the briefest moments — a five-minute cartooning session — can come sharable art and insightful expression, graphic artist and cartoonist Marek Bennett showed Norwich students Wednesday. Lengthen the drawing time and add contributors and collaboration, he suggested, and this art can direct social change.

Senior Andrew Zogg learns professionalism, gains experience working for National Life Group

By the time Andrew Zogg ’20, came to the Norwich University Career and Internship Center during the spring semester of his junior year, he knew the value of internships. He had already completed a marketing internship for a manufacturing company near his home in Maine. But since Zogg is an accounting and business management major, he decided an internship in that field would be important.

Zogg had heard it was possible to get an internship where he could earn academic credit toward his degree, get paid by the employer, and gain professional skills and connections. He came to the Career and Internship Center for the details.

Olivia Bloom said seeing the world opened her eyes.

The senior neuroscience major, Student Government Association president, cadet and enlisted U.S. Marine has traveled abroad twice during her Norwich years, to Chengdu, China, in summer 2017 and Cusco, Peru, in fall 2018. Though the experiences varied widely, both helped her grow profoundly, she said, teaching her that life can change with a handshake.

Every semester, Norwich students arrive with one momentous choice made (where to go to college) but perhaps another weighing on them (what to study.)
