Receptions for families of rooks, civilian students will accompany welcomes
Buildings stand ready, lawns are mowed, signs are getting posted and events are planned. A big weekend featuring Rook Arrival Day will continue Norwich University’s march toward the 2021-22 academic year.
Students began arriving in Northfield, Vermont, last week — some student-athletes, residence life staff and members of the Corp of Cadets — the Regimental Band, cavalry and international platoon.
On Friday, new ROTC students will arrive from 9 a.m. to noon. They’ll participate in a 4 p.m. reception and 5 p.m. banquet at Plumley Armory interspersed with a 4:30 p.m. photo for scholarship students at Jackman Hall.
Line unit and international rooks will also arrive Friday, having received arrival details by email. Rook Arrival Day will run 8 a.m. to noon Sunday at Doyle Hall next to Kreitzberg Arena. A prearrival welcome reception for rooks and their families will run 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday; a reception for rooks’ families will run 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday in Plumley Armory. (Rooks will have started training). At the rook receptions, parents may write notes of support to their student to be delivered after the rooks’ first week of classes.
Civilian Student Arrival Day is Tuesday. A prearrival reception for these students and their parents will run 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at Plumley Armory. An arrival day reception will run 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday in Doyle Hall.
The Norwich Families Association will host the receptions.
On Sept. 28, the university will host a welcoming party for all students.
