Race goes virtual to fit into weekend’s 2020’s format, attracting variety of runners

As student-athletes showed their skills in the Grit Games during this past weekend’s virtual Homecoming, Norwich alums broke their own sweat in a virtual 5-kilometer run.

Homecoming brings weekend celebration; Careerpalooza, Military Writers’ Symposium lie ahead

Challenge accepted. Party started. 

The coronavirus pandemic has lingered stubbornly, forcing big changes in all facets of campus life. (Be honest, how often did you say “multiple modalities” before this fall?) Students faculty and staff have learned to sing to themselves during hand washings (Raspberry beret… scrub, scrub … the kind you find … scrub, scrub … in a secondhand store), and say hellos from behind masks at 6-foot distances. But the idea of a fall without a Homecoming, well, a campus bridge too far.

Annual Homecoming celebration goes online, reprising traditional rites and adding fresh activities

How’s this for contrast? Last year’s bicentennial Homecoming celebration brought a record 6,000 visitors to campus for a weekend of gleeful feats and fetes. Crowds mingled all over ­— at food trucks, in campus buildings, at Sabine Field for the football game against rival Coast Guard (oh, what a finish).

C is for cookies, which are sweeter when they’re free. Thanks to alumnus Fred Breton’s tasty tradition, a pair of Norwich University freshmen received free homemade cookies as a Homecoming treat.

During Careerpalooza, which runs throughout October, students will get to meet virtually with employers and take webinars to improve their résumés, etiquette with employers and other skills. (Photo by Norwich University Photography.)

Month of virtual events will connect students and employee-seeking companies

Get out your résumés, unpack your career curiosity. Careerpalooza is here.

In keynote, President Emeritus Richard W. Schneider reflects on Norwich career, love for generations of students

The audience seats were empty, but hearts were full when the Class of  2020’s Commencement finally arrived at Mack Hall, especially President Emeritus Richard W. Schneider’s.
