Well everyone it has been a very busy first few weeks back. As a senior I feel like I have more corps obligations now than I have ever had. This year I am the Regimental S1 Officer In Charge and this job requires a good bit of my time. I arrived on campus on August 7th to start work for the corps and get everyone ready for their housing assignment. As the summer progressed we got everyone in a bed and checked in all the new rooks. It has been a struggle adjusting to my new class schedule. This semester I am solely emerged in my major and minor course work. This semester I am taking my senior seminar class, which is an independent research method course and I am helping facilitate Literary Methods. A class I took my sophomore year as an English major. My job is to act... Continue reading

As the semester comes to a close, everyone starts to cram for their finals. This is also the most stressful time as a college student. I am very fortunate to be able to have all my ducks in a row and I am prepared for papers and finals I have in the future. This week is gonna be busy: I had to turn in a paper yesterday, a draft was due today and I have a chameleon release to do, and two papers due Friday. This can seem like not that much but typing out four or five papers can be very hard and stressful. To combat this I started two weeks ago, I started with the paper that was due first and just work my way out from there. Also I am trying to pack so I can put my stuff in a storage unit over the summer. I... Continue reading

Well junior ring was a success! Junior ring weekend was also a success. It was really great to get my ring and be able to celebrate with my friends and my original platoon. The ceremony was so surreal, as a member of the ring committee it is wonderful to be able to watch the ceremony each year. But actually experiencing the ceremony was magical. I am going to post a photo or two to my blog as soon as I have some free time. Just a picture of my ring and my experiences this weekend. I loved getting dressed up and going to the ball because the ball was specifically meant for the juniors. I am also very proud to say that I have earned the title of a Norwich women. Many people did not receive their rings yet, but that is okay because it will mean so much more... Continue reading

This week has to be the most exciting as all Juniors, that's me, will be getting their rings on Friday. This is a super special opportunity as many of us have waited our entire Norwich career for this very day! You are only allowed to get the corps ring, if you are in the corps and meet certain criteria. It is a privilege and an honor to be allowed to wear the Norwich Ring. It represents the transition into becoming apart of the great men and women who have come before you. The ring represents the connection a Norwich alum has. On Friday I will be able to proudly say that I am a Norwich woman of honor and integrity. Our class has worked hard to get to where we are today, but that is what defines us from the rest of the population. Our strive to do better and... Continue reading

So this past weekend, and previously talked about, there was an HHC company dining in. This is a fancy dinner where the company gets together to eat and laugh and appreciate those who surround them. Headquaters is the center of attention for the corps. There are six s-sections that all have individual jobs that must happen to get the corps running. S1 is housing, s2 is security, s3 is corps event planning, s4 is supply, s5 is civilian event planning, and s6 is technology. Along with the six sections are Public Affairs, Athletic Liaisons, and Coporal Academic Mentor programs. All these individual groups come together to create one big HHC. My section is s1 and we are one of the first people to arrive on campus. We arrive the earliest so we can straighten out housing and get keys ready for the arrival of new students and returning students. We... Continue reading

Well this weekend should be somewhat fun. My company, HHC, is having a dining in. This is kinda like a fancy dinner to give out awards and eat with your sections. It is not mandatory and costs 15 dollars but I believe it will be worth it. We are suppose to be receiving a challenge coin. I think that will be super fun. It will go to the collection of other coins I have. Also, my roommate and I have made plans to walk to town and get some chinese food. I know that sounds kinda lame but it is kinda like our thing. We go every once in a while and get some food sit and talk with each other. It is good bonding and we dont really mind the walk. I have also made plans with my other friend and my roommate to go out to eat the... Continue reading

Well it is the first few days back and I am having to get back into my routine. That means waking up on time for formation, going to the gym, going to classes, and eating at the same time everyday. I am super excited about the next few weeks because the junior ring ceremony is 31 days away. I have to buy my dress soon for the dance, I may also get my nails done so when I take pictures with the ring that my nails look nice. I am not sure yet though. I am going to the MCW condo with my boyfriend. Most people get a condo with their original platoons but my platoon is not getting a condo because there are only 8 of us who are getting their rings. I am on the committee so I have to prepare invitations and letters to the guests and... Continue reading

Hey guys! So Monday of this week was my birthday. Having a birthday at school is soo wonderful. If one person knows its your birthday, that means everyone knows it is your birthday. I had a lot of people wish me a happy birthday, which is super awesome because it feels good to have other people wish me a happy birthday! This week I am doing the snapchat for the Admissions office. It is really fun. I am posting my regular routines and taking pictures with my roommate. I made sure we wore our matching shirts so we could take a good picture while we did our nightly cleanse, which is just us brushing our teeth and doing any last minute things before we go to bed. Today is the Etiquette Dinner, so I will be dressing up with my rook brother and going to eat a nice meal. This... Continue reading

Every since I was little I have wanted to be a lawyer. My dream of being lawyer has no exact cause or reason, as to why I want to be a lawyer. But I do. Here recently at school I have been concerned with that going forward with my career, like how am I going to pay for school or how will I get into school. This has been one of my most recent concerns moving forward with my life. I have come to the realization that I am going to be in a lot of debt and I am going to have to work super hard to achieve this goal. My plan so far is to take the LSAT, I bought this super nice book to help me study. Then get into law school. I think maybe if I reach out to the Alumni system of Norwich I could... Continue reading

Hi Hunter, Thanks for the comment. VIPA is the club I am president of, it stands for Violence Intervention Peer Advocacy. As a member you can be trained to be a be a confidential advocate and help victims from all types of violence get the resources they need or just be a listening ear when they need to vent. As for rooks, a rook is a freshman in the corps. As a rook you have to undergo an 18 week program where you are faced with many challenges. (please read some of my older blogs as I was a rook last year) But being a rook is a life changing experience that you undergo with some fantastic people who will become your closest friends. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask them!! Thanks, Mary Beth
