Our civilian students live and learn as part of a distinctive collegiate environment that combines a tradition of service and leadership development with a commitment to innovation and scholastic achievement. They encompass both residential students and commuters. Whether you’re looking for rigorous academics, championship athletics or an exceptional variety of clubs and organizations, Norwich has the resources to offer the amenities of a large university with the personal feel of a small private college. There’s plenty to engage and entertain students inside and outside the classroom. Norwich provides easy access to Vermont’s magnificent beauty and outdoor recreation.
In addition to accredited and nationally recognized academic programs and sports, civilian students are drawn by Norwich’s guiding values and the integrity and structure they provide. They also like the feel and attention afforded by a small school and supportive community.
At Norwich, we pride ourselves on producing tomorrow’s leaders. Civilian students attend school at one of the nation’s foremost leadership laboratories. This structured but dynamic environment prepares our civilian students for both academic achievement and success in a competitive global environment where different lifestyles often intersect. Civilian and Corps students work together in the classroom, on the athletic fields and in the campus center, learning and benefitting from one another.
