Mack Hall, our newest academic building, will be ready for classes when the semester begins in just a few days! So, we would love it if you would come over to campus from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Aug. 27, to see what it’s all about. We’ll be serving ice cream and conducting tours of the new building for anyone wanting to see its new classrooms, cybersecurity operations center, performing arts center, and case-study rooms.

Then, we’ll welcome everyone into our new 400-seat auditorium/performing arts center to hear from university leaders about bicentennial celebrations, campus updates, and NU students and faculty in the community. We will also have information tables and campus staff on hand to answer questions in the Mack Hall lobby and to guide tours of campus.

Please join us so you can hear firsthand about all we have here at Norwich to offer you as a member of our “family.”
