For over 200 years, students at Norwich University, the birthplace of ROTC, have served our nation and its armed forces with distinction. The Tri-Service Awards honor students for leadership in our four military branches — the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Air Force. They also honor academic and athletic achievements of cadets in our Corps of Cadets. In these pages, you’ll find honors for the service, resilience and displays of moral character that are trademarks of our students and our university.
