John and Mary Frances Patton Peace and War Center director shares thoughts on WCAX television

The Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks changed American discourse, Norwich University’s Dr. Travis Morris told WCAX-TV, Channel 3, on Thursday, moving terrorism from something perhaps perceived as foreign (Middle East violence) or isolated (the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing) to something national.

At Convocation, biology and neuroscience professor describes how new experience can stoke neuron synergy and build mastery

As a biologist, neuroscientist and professor, Dr. Megan Doczi has long had brains on the brain. They’re fascinating, she said, the only human organs that can contemplate themselves. In them, tens of billions of neurons connect with more trillions of synapses to form a network vaster than the Milky Way.

Tropical Storm Irene’s rains sparked flooding, wrecked homes and caused more than $2 million in property damage in Northfield, Vermont, in 2011. But from its ravages, emerged a chance to restore and educate, associate professor of biology Dr. Simon Pearish said.

Norwich University serves. And when Tropical Storm Irene hit 10 years ago, dozens of students, civilian and Corps, served en masse, rolling up sleeves and helping Northfield residents cope. Within a month, Norwich students had spent 4,000 hours volunteering, cleaning up in the storm’s aftermath.

We love a parade. Norwich University began the fall semester’s second week with a day off from classes and participation in the Northfield Labor Day festivities. The Regimental Band played and several student groups, including the Corps of Cadets and several sports teams, marched.
