A new beginning

Norwich University President Mark C. Anarumo speaks to an officer from the Corps of Cadets on Monday on sun-splashed Sabine Field at Haynes Family Stadium. Some outdoor spaces served as learning and gathering spaces Monday as classes started, marking the 2020-21 academic year’s official start.

Students began arriving Aug. 8 and Aug. 9 and continued coming in phases. About 1,800 students will be on campus this fall; about 300 will commute to school and about 300 will study remotely. Campus is running at reduced capacity this fall to comply with Vermont Health Department guidelines related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Anarumo and Corps Commandant Col. Michael Titus have encouraged on-campus students to connect and communicate with their off-campus peers to reinforce Norwich’s tradition of familial unity.

Norwich together, Norwich forever.
