In commencement messages, Norwich alumni encourage Class of 2020 to embrace opportunity, build relationships
Class of 2020 graduates weren’t the only ones missing commencement. The coronavirus campus shutdown meant an empty Shapiro Fieldhouse and neither mortarboard tosses, nor keynote speeches nor joyful whoops. There were also no encouraging words from the many people — parents, siblings, professors, staff and alumni — who supported the students this year and all the others.
Grateful Norwich community pays tribute to outgoing President Richard W. Schneider
Wanda Dami remembers once needing to park her car on campus in 2013, when she brought her son, Joseph, then a Norwich freshman, back after a break. She’d searched the lots and thought she’d lucked out with a space, but it was reserved — for President Richard W. Schneider.

Car parade on campus will let Norwich University community salute much respected, soon-to-retire leader
Richard W. Schneider has loved the parades — the thumping of feet, the trumpeters’ bleats, the lining of streets. He and his wife, Jaime, have gamely ridden in many Norwich parades over his 28 years as Norwich University’s president. On Labor Day weekend, for example, they rode on the university’s bicentennial float through Northfield as grand marshals of the Northfield Labor Day Parade.
On Tuesday, instead of being in a parade, the Schneiders will be honorees.
