Superb academic and family support. Recommend doing an overnight visit. Corps of Cadets is very different from ROTC programs. Team work is essential! You will be pushed harder than ever before, you will sacrifice a standard college experience but if the military is your goal the sacrifices will be worth it. Not many ROTC scholarship avail anymore - keep in mind only about 30 per year avail at the school. Dont rely on getting one you soph year - you will be competing with upperclassmen as well.

The value of t your degree coming from Norwich University depends highly on what you studied. For instance the engineering, architecture, and nursing program are highly respected degrees from here. Other majors not so much but still are very respectable degrees. The number of opportunities to acquire an internship from Norwich are amazing. Most people who do provide internships here are Norwich alumni giving back to the school. The amount of alumni there are for being such a small school are great in number and spread far and wide. They are all over the world and are constantly helping recent graduates from here. The network is amazing. Alumni from here are very proud in the school just like the students and will give any student a shot at a job if they show the interest which is absolutely amazing. The career center here are amazing at setting up internships and great opportunities as well. These opportunities do not come knocking at your door. You have to go out and get them.

Attending Norwich University has been a very challenging and great experience so far. Norwich is a unique school because it offers just more than academics, it offers you the opportunity to become a leader and to be a better citizen. So far, I have already become better in many aspects in my life. This school pushes you physically and mentally from Day 1. I live over 4,000miles away from home and I became homesick. Living far from home surely is a challenge and with the people that surround me, they helped me get through and overcome this obstacle. Not only that, physically, I was having a real rough time with endurance and cardio, but with self-motivation and the support from my rook brothers and sisters, I was able to improve my run time in no time. This school has something that no other school has and that's motivation and teamwork. This place puts you to the test and will surely make a great impact on your life. This place is what you make of it.
