In show of service, pair of Norwich graduates support delivery of critical coronavirus care

As scores of Norwich graduates will attest, “I will try,” Norwich University’s war-forged motto, resonates on campus and off, in everyday life and in crisis. This spring, the words inspired a pair of Norwich graduates involved in Northeastern U.S. efforts to mitigate the coronavirus pandemic.

Graduation was supposed to be a final moment with our full cohort; this year’s reality was different

When I moved into Goodyear Hall in August 2016, I didn’t realize what was ahead at all. I was drawn to this place by the family atmosphere and the strong emphasis from the cadre that “when you’re this far away from home, you have nothing, and when you have nothing, all you have is each other. Lean on each other and learn from one another.”

Over the next three years, that would be the most important mindset to maintain.

Even as it scatters and sequesters, Norwich community shows resilience, cohesion

How has Norwich’s community adapted to the coronavirus pandemic’s brave new world? Recent picture-and-narrative-packed missives suggest it’s with trademark mettle and moxie and sometimes merriment.

Long-awaited bicentennial concert is Carnegie Hall’s last act before coronavirus shutdown

Norwich University’s Regimental Band played on at Carnegie Hall, becoming the last act standing before New York’s concert halls and theaters closed to stave off the novel coronavirus.

The band performed its bicentennial concert March 12 in the 599-seat underground Zankel Hall for a crowd of about 150 people, including parents and friends of the musicians and alumni, Col. Todd Edwards, assistant commandant of Norwich’s Corps of Cadets and the Regimental Band’s director, said.
