Nation’s oldest private military college is named among best for veterans, for value and for engineering and computer science programs for 2022

NORTHFIELD, Vt. —

Norwich University has made the Best National Universities rankings compiled by national newsmagazine U.S. News & World Report.

For the fifth consecutive year, Norwich improved its rank as a regional university; as a school ranked highly for veterans; and as a top national undergraduate engineering program. Norwich also made the best value school and best undergraduate computer science program lists after being unranked in both in 2021.

The U.S. News value ranking follows Norwich University’s high ranking in Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce’s national “A First Try at ROI” study. In the study, released in November 2019, Norwich ranked in the top 7% for best net value among the 4,529 schools ranked.

“The fact we have earned an elevated position among the best in the nation is very important to our students and families, including affordability, as an exemplar for veterans, and in multiple academic programs.”Norwich University President Dr. Mark Anarumo

“Norwich University continues to climb college ranking lists, both nationally and regionally,” Norwich University President Dr. Mark Anarumo said. “I am especially proud to see us move into high ranking for categories in which we weren’t even mentioned last year; that is an extraordinary accomplishment. The fact we have earned an elevated position among the best in the nation is very important to our students and families, including affordability, as an exemplar for veterans, and in multiple academic programs.”

Anarumo also celebrated Norwich’s climb in ranking for its engineering programs, noting Norwich’s stature as the first private university to teach engineering, leading the way for its graduates to make significant contributions in roads, bridges and infrastructure that built the America we know today.

“The David Crawford School of Engineering is pleased with this increased ranking as we continue to invest in laboratory spaces, Wallace Materials Testing Facility (opened in Spring 2021) and Carrara Family Fluids Laboratory, that continue our founder’s vision for experiential learning,” the school’s director, Dr. Karen Supan, said.
