Dear Norwich Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, Alumni and Friends:

This past Sunday, August 16th, we welcomed about 240 students to campus in the second phase of a six-phase schedule of arrival days in advance of the start of the fall semester. The majority of this arrival cohort was comprised of Corps and civilian upperclass student leaders, together with the Provisional Battalion Rooks. 

Our reception process continues to be highly organized and includes COVID-19 testing for every student with results reported in our 24-48 hour testing protocol and timeline. As of this morning, there are a total of 4 positive cases on campus, representing students from the first and second arrival phases. Those students were immediately notified by the Green Mountain Family Practice and have been quarantined according to our policy. 

​Student Arrival, August 8-9, 2020

This past weekend Norwich University welcomed the first of six phases of new and returning Corps and civilian students back to campus for the fall 2020 semester. Approximately 500 students returned to campus eager to begin their fall semester of studies. Watch the video to learn about this highly organized process, which included COVID-19 testing for every student supported by the faculty and students of the University’s School of Nursing.

Women at Norwich have been an integral part of the success of the University. While many women during the early years of the Academy were “behind the scenes” their contributions were important, lasting and helped shape the institution Norwich is today. This exhibition features many facets of the women who were “first”. First ladies of the Norwich Presidents, first women Cadets in the Corps and first women in fields where they have not traditionally been employed or deployed. Join us for a view into Norwich from perspectives of notables such as Captain Alden Partridge’s wife Anne Partridge, the first eight women to enter the Corps of Cadets as well as today’s Women of Norwich, both Civilian and Cadet.
