The new page features information, tips and answers to dozens of frequently asked questions in 14 categories spanning arrival, orientation and student life.

The site includes answers to many queries posed to Norwich President Dr. Mark Anarumo during his Thursday night town hall. Many senior administration leaders also answered questions and shared information, including Provost Sandra Affenito, Interim Commandant William Passalacqua ’88, Senior Vice President for Student Affairs and Technology Frank Vanecek, Vice President of Enrollment Management Gregory Matthews, Nursing Director Paulette Thabault and Athletic Director Tony Mariano.

On the hourlong-plus virtual meeting, Anarumo called 2020 an aberration and expressed optimism for the new semester as classroom instruction, military training, athletics and other activities return to in-person delivery.

“We’re an in-person school. … We’re all about giving your students incredible augmentation to world-class academic in-class instruction. And we’re glad to give that to them because it’s what you deserve, and, most importantly, it’s what they deserve,” Anarumo said. “We want (students) to get here, we want them to succeed out of the gate … and we want them to graduate and love this school as much as our graduates have over time.”
