Norwich University rising seniors Halee Lair and Shawnae Evans stand with the poster they created for this year’s Posters on the Hill presentation in April. The national show of scholarship, presented by the Council on Undergraduate Research, ran on Twitter this year after the coronavirus pandemic forced cancellation of the traditional meeting in Washington, D.C.

The presentation was virtual, but the thrill was real.

In April, Norwich rising seniors and science majors Shawnae Evans and Halee Lair used social media to participate in Posters on the Hill, an annual undergraduate research poster session directed by the Council on Undergraduate Research, a national nonprofit membership group that was founded in 1987 and supports undergraduate research.

Career and Internship Center poised to help students of every year and major gain vital workplace experience

We in the Norwich University Career and Internship Center are safe at home and yes, we’re still working.

Thanks to implementing a new career management platform in 2017, we were able to move to online/digital services within a day or two of the COVID-19 directives. Yes, we prefer to meet with students face to face, but until we can return to in-person visits in our offices, we and our student peer coaches are ready to help remotely.

Money raised will support scholarship named for Navy SEAL and Norwich graduate killed during mission in Afghanistan

Brian Bill gave his life for his country. The U.S. Navy SEAL and 2001 Norwich University graduate was one of 38 people killed when enemy fire downed the CH-47 Chinook helicopter he was on in Afghanistan in August 2011.

In his honor, Norwich and Bill's family, the Parry family, have held a charity golf tournament to support a scholarship in his name every spring since 2012. The coronavirus pandemic and ensuing campus shutdown scrubbed those plans, but the university issued the Brian R. Bill Memorial Giving Challenge in lieu of the tournament to raise money for the scholarship.

If Ethan Hagstrom and Emma Nettleship were a mathematical equation, they’d express as E2=RC2, and they’d balance beautifully.
