En colores brillantes

With strokes of chalk, bursts of color and a torrent of creative energy, Norwich University Spanish language students on Wednesday celebrated multicultural richness and the many nations that speak Spanish around the world.

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University hosts the 26th annual Military Writers’ Symposium, running Oct. 7 to Oct. 8. The symposium, which will address “Weaponizing Water: Ancient Tactic, New Implications” is free and open to the public and will be held virtually this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Norwich University President Mark C. Anarumo speaks Sept. 1 during Norwich’s virtual Convocation in Mack Hall’s auditorium. He urged students to test their limits, strive for excellence and not fear errors.

Learning is more than acquiring knowledge, Norwich University President Mark C. Anarumo said during his 2020 Convocation address, it’s learning to apply that knowledge to let students both think and act. Knowledge is of no use, he said, until it’s put to use. And with major challenges everywhere in the nation and world, tomorrow’s leaders will need to use, and apply, all they know.

Study hall

As much as students have gathered in classrooms and outdoor spaces to learn this new semester, they have gathered at Kreitzberg Library. On Tuesday, senior construction management majors Jorge Ulloa and Elias Bou-Chahine were working on a civil engineering assignment and freshman business major Danielle Guerrero was reading stories for her English class.

This lab’s all about current events

Everything’s about connections.

On Monday, electrical engineering students in Dr. Michael Prairie’s Electronics II lab connected transistors to build postage-stamp-size amplifying circuits, similar to ones a guitarist might find in the amplifier that makes string-bending note sequences and prolonged riffs louder.

We honor you, President Emeritus Schneider

Saturday’s Commencement honored Norwich University’s Class of 2020, but also honored Richard W. Schneider, who retired in May after 28 years as president.

9/11 flag planting, Space Force oath ceremony highlight busy week on campus

History had its eye on us and we on it as we studied, gathered and learned together this past week (and slightly before).

On Sept. 4, before we headed into the Labor Day weekend, Norwich marked the 200th anniversary of the Sept. 4, 1820, enrollment of students. Archives Associate Sarah Durham highlighted correspondence from university founder Capt. Alden Partridge that described early cadets’ interactions.

Anyone who turns on a television or reads a newsfeed these days knows America has been struggling with political division, a stress on top of the coronavirus pandemic. With the U.S. presidential election less than 60 days off, rhetoric has intensified toward crescendo. But on Friday, Norwich University will pause to reflect on a moment that has unified America — remembering the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Click, clack go computer keys at Mack

A properly masked student takes advantage of Mack Hall’s Wi-Fi connection and counter space to use her laptop computer to work on an assignment Wednesday. Mack, which is nearing the second anniversary of its official opening, accommodates studying, gathering, performing and, most importantly, learning.
