Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

The Corporal/Civilian Academic Mentoring (CAM) program is part of Norwich University’s leadership initiative to guide freshmen through the high school to college transition and to provide academic leadership development to upperclassmen across their NU career. All freshmen are assigned a student mentor, a CAM, for the fall semester. CAMs are academically successful sophomores, who volunteer to meet with their mentees for 11-12 sessions throughout the fall semester after completing training. Mentors -- assigned by majors or schools -- provide valuable tools specific to their disciplines. Goals of the program include fine-tuning essential academic skills, setting goals, working on time management, and offering general advice based on experience to make the most of Norwich University offerings. CAM is a successful student-run program that ensures a healthy start to college for freshmen, and a continuing leadership opportunity for sophomore CAMs and the junior and senior upper-class leaders who learn and practice excellent leadership skills while giving back to the community.
