Week’s slate also includes virtual Founder’s Day toast

Imagining the carillon? Its ringing, the purr of arriving cars and the voices of excited students will soon create the start-of-semester symphony in Northfield, Vermont.

Student arrivals will start next week as a prelude to the Aug. 30  start of Norwich University’s fall semester. A pair of webinars this week will work to prepare soon-to-arrive students and students who may someday be among them.

First, the soon-to-comers. From 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, an arrival webinar will run virtually. A panel comprising representatives from the Admissions and Commandant’s offices, student life  and athletics staff will answer questions about on-campus arrival.

Fifteen in-person Student Sendoffs will run through Sunday in places as close as central Vermont and as far away as Alaska.

The panel will complement the new-this-semester arrival information webpage, which features answers to dozens of frequently asked questions on every aspect of first-semester life. Tap in to get the arrival schedule, the orientation schedule, the campus map and campus life information in a dozen categories.

To complement the webinar and webpage, 15 in-person Student Sendoffs will run through Sunday in places as close as central Vermont and far away as Alaska. Current students, alumni and university officials will meet with incoming first-year students to answer questions and share Norwich experience stories. See the schedule.

Meanwhile, high schoolers, college students considering a transfer or others considering enrolling at Norwich can join an application webinar at 3 p.m. Tuesday. Discussion will cover which forms to file, what steps to take and how Admissions officials will review applications.

And to mark Founder’s Day on Friday, President Dr. Mark Anarumo and alumnus Joey Mac Dizon ’11 will mark the university’s 202nd birthday with a virtual toast from 7 to 7:15 p.m. Register with your name and class year, then fix your beverge and tune in.
