"I would like nothing more from my teaching than to see my students go so far in their learning as to turn around and teach me something new—to see the pupil become the master."
"Prof. Murdock always found new ways to challenge me in the classroom and encouraged my growth intellectually. From my first class freshman year to the very last semester, he always set that bar high. He never wavered in the expectations he had, which instilled a drive in me to achieve greatness.

Regardless of what I was attempting to do or wanted to try, he was always there to guide me in the right direction for success." --Chad Luce '15, Sports Medicine/Health Science and Athletic Training Double Major and ROTC scholar.

"Profs. Patricia Ferreria and Sean Prentiss showed me what I was capable of, especially when it came to writing and expressing myself. Norwich gave me the opportunity to be a name, not just a number. Three years later, Prof. Prentiss can still remember the short stories I wrote for his creative writing class. Both were tremendously supportive when I was applying to law school." --Giselle Lopez '15, History major, English minor. Future Vermont Law School grad.
"I knew I wanted to serve my country. My Criminal Justice classes opened up a new world to me on how I could become a public servant. I decided I wanted to become a federal employee, and I haven’t looked back since then. I interned with the federal government's National Bulk Cash Smuggling Center in Williston, Vermont, which works to assist federal, state, tribal, local and foreign law enforcement in preventing, investigating, and disrupting money laundering." --Luke Puleo '15, Criminal Justice & Communications Double Major, Sociology Minor.

She helped me find what I was passionate about and gave me the tools to achieve my goals." --Susan Limberg '15

I have been accepted to the London School of Economics and Political Science for a Master's of Science in International Affairs."

"Professors here have real talent and passion for what they do. In mechanical engineering, teamwork is essential.

The summer before my senior year, I attended the Langley Aerospace Research Student Scholars Program. For ten weeks, I worked as an intern at NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia." --Spencer Nath '15, Mechanical Engineering Major and Air Force ROTC Scholar.
"My study abroad experience and the Honors Program made a big difference in my academic experience at Norwich.

They were always there." --Taylor Kacur '15, Accounting & Business Management Double Major
