Procter & Gamble, E.&J. Gallo Winery will lead virtual information sessions

The Career and Internship Center’s monthlong Careerpalooza employment fair and a Legacy of Learning webinar on policing highlight an activity-packed week ahead at Norwich University.

The slate for Careerpalooza, which connects students and employee-seeking companies, starts Monday with a virtual résumé tune-up and architecture, engineering and construction recruiting event from noon to 1 p.m.

Law enforcement, stress management and mental resilience experts will lead talks at Wednesday’s “Leadership in Policing” session.

On Tuesday, Careerpalooza events will include an exploring corporate responsibility session by the E.&J. Gallo Winery from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., a leadership speaker series session featuring Procter & Gamble Chief Equality and Inclusion Officer Shelly McNamara from 7 to 8 p.m. and a College to Career Industry Panel for architecture, engineering and construction students also from 7 to 8 p.m.

"Many companies are still hiring during the pandemic and looking for great talent,” Norwich University Career and Internship Center Associate Director Meghan Oliver said. “This virtual recruiting event will help connect our great students and new grads with employers in a simple and meaningful way.”

Parent and Family Weekend ahead

Other coming-week events include a mindful meditation webinar from 2 to 3 p.m. Monday and a Fall Admissions Series webinar for ROTC students from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The College of Graduate and Continuing Studies will host a webinar on “Leadership in Policing” session from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday. Law enforcement, stress management and mental resilience experts will lead the discussion, which will cover mitigating stress and burnout in policing and influencing police decision-making positively through effective department policy.

Norwich will be busy both this weekend and next. Army ROTC field exercises started Friday, with activities at Shaw Outdoor Center on Paine Mountain and other campus locales.

On Saturday, the Campus Activities Board will present a group mountain bike ride on Paine Mountain, free for Norwich University students. Two groups, experienced and beginner cyclists, will participate in the ride, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. All equipment will be provided.

Next weekend will bring Parent and Family Weekend, which like the recent Homecoming, will be virtual. Events run Oct. 15 though Oct. 17.

The Legacy Pinning will lead the Oct. 15 slate, followed by an Alumni and Family Office welcome with remarks from Norwich President Mark C. Anarumo, Parent and Family Association President Nick DiSilvio and Alumni and Family Relations director Eddie Habeck. A photo-and-video presentation will show images from the semester’s first six weeks.

On Oct. 16, Open houses will cover study abroad, the Career and Internship Center, the Commandant’s Office and the Dean of Students will hold open houses, as will the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy/U.S. Marines ROTC.

NUTV, a video channel on the Alumni and Family Relations Office’s web and Facebook pages, will broadcast a Corps of Cadets review, and drill team Shock Platoon performance, a carillon bell concert and a Regimental Band concert on Saturday. (Fun fact: Norwich’s Charlotte Nichols Greene Memorial Carillon originally had 36 bells and has 47.)

Oct. 17 NUTV programs will include the livestreamed Rook Military Skills Competition from the Upper Parade Ground and a virtual tour of the Sullivan Museum & History Center.

NUTV broadcast many events from Homecoming earlier this month, including the Grit Games, an obstacle course competition involving Norwich’s eight fall sports teams, which had their seasons canceled by the coronavirus pandemic.
