I cannot believe it, seniors just one-month until we hit the state for graduation and head on out to move on with our lives to the next chapters in our lives. As I think about the things which I plan to do for the next month I think about all of the things that I am going to miss about this campus. Working in Dunkin on campus with the most amazing people, hanging with the friends I have made in the last four years and having a great time, and playing the sport of rugby with my team who I am going to miss dearly. Just a few examples of the things I will miss about this campus so for the next month I promise I will not take advantage of the time with the best Dunkin crew, the fun times and memories I am making with the friends and...

It's so crazy how fast time flies on campus. i Just wanted to say congratulations to every junior who received their rings. I am so glad you were able to have the ceremony and get your rings this past Friday. Getting your ring is one of the most exciting things to look forward to at Norwich. It is a symbol of family and the men and women who graduated before you and who will come after. It is very exciting to wear that ring. But one thing you have to always remember is as time goes on you must remember what that ring symbolizes on your finger. It is a symbol of this school and the alumni before us. When people look at this ring and notice the school you come from it is a very important thing that I hope you always remember. It is an amazing thing I... Continue reading

You know that nervous feeling you get in your gut when you step up to present your presentation in front of a class full of students and professors. Well, I can tell you every student in this school has felt that same feeling before. As you get closer to senior year it should get easier. In my experience it has become much easier. As I stepped into the front of my thesis presentation professors last week, I realized all the years of prep and work it has taken to get me to be as good and ready as I could have been in that room. In my opinion I'd have to say the worst part is when you get to the end and the professors begin asking questions. It's always so nerve wrecking, will I be able to answer this to the best of my ability or am I going... Continue reading

You never realize how fast time flies then when everything that had been a first becomes your last. I cannot believe in the beginning of my freshman year I never believed the seniors when they said time flies at Norwich, but as the countdown to graduation has begun and we seniors just had my last break while being at Norwich. As the days go by, I think about all the many things you do throughout your four years here that have gone by and been the last time I may ever do them. Being able to observe rook week, dog river run, and many more activities. As I continue on with our last 44 days, I think about the many things I hope to do to finish off my time here at Norwich, and the many memories I will make. The biggest advice I give to any underclassmen in case... Continue reading

In the last few years, I have met some of the most amazing people in my life. The number of friends and memories I get to make with them has made my time here at Norwich worth wile. Between the many rugby games, to after school activities, lastly to the people I have met from the job on campus. I could never forget the people and things we have done here on campus. With every new week comes a new memory remember that when you decide the groups which you choose to be a part of. When choosing my group, I made sure to choose the people who were here for me on my worst and best days, knew how to make me laugh and have a good day, and those who will bring out the best in me. If it wasn't for the many people here at Norwich, I... Continue reading

Something that many take advantage of here at Norwich is the endless opportunities which you have to work on campus. No matter if it's a work study with any of the professors, centers, or studies or a job working with Sodexo this is one thing that I would never do if I went back in history to change something about my life here at Norwich. While being here for the last 3.5 years I have worked for Dunkin donuts. One of the best decisions I have ever made. The relationships you make with staff and maybe some students you have never known in your life. All Ways in which I have been able to get to know and love so many awesome people here while on campus. The endless opportunities which these jobs going from Dunkin to the mill this year has is absolutely awesome. As i move from one... Continue reading

One of the best things here at Norwich is being able to take my love for a sport and cheer on my friends in my brotherhood team, the wrestling team. Being a part of the rugby team, this is one of the cool things at Norwich. Each sports team is given a brother sister team which works with one another and cheers one another on. It is awesome because not only do you have a group of friends which you meet but also a group of boys you can consider brothers. In the last few years, I have hit to know many of them and be a part of their last four years wrestling and it has been awesome. Getting to watch a spot I once before having played makes it so much more worth it. Watching the Matt and then coming to cheer us on at the pitch is... Continue reading

Wow senior year flies fast. You come back to your first day back and boom its winter break and a New Year. Bye bye 2021...Hello 2022! As we go through this semester, I just want you to take it slow and think of the many things which you are doing in the moment. Remember them so when your senior year comes you can think about the times and the moments which you remember. There is nothing better than you can take with you after graduation then the memories that you make today. So, while many of you may be like me counting down the days till graduation also remember to spend as much time with your friends, or the people you love in a place which we all share with one another getting degrees with people who share the similarities of a better job and education. Tak time, make memories,... Continue reading

As the last fourteen days go by, I think about the many memories that are made in a year here at Norwich. Some that I will never forget. My favorite moments however are the ones I spend with my team and the platoon I have grown with through the last four years. In the last few years, I cannot thank this group of brothers and sisters for helping me grow within Norwich and have a great group of people I can call friends. Although sometimes it is hard with the crazy schedules trying to get together and catch up but every time, we seem to get together it is always a great time and so easy to catch up. As time goes by remember that platoon is not just a group of people you ended up in a platoon with freshman year, or a group of kids you graduate with.... Continue reading

After break I don't know about you guys but for me its grind time. As soon as we get back I am gonna get going on the last two weeks we have eft of this semester. Just remember for everybody no matter what year you are grind time is grind time and once this two weeks of grind time is over we are onto exams and are getting ready to be finished with the firsts semester of the 2021-2022 school year. So take the time for the next few days of break to have fun and take the time with your friends and family, but when you are ready to come back Sunday be ready to go go go as the last two weeks of the semester always fly fast. Be prepared to get back to where you had left off but also be prepared to finish off and finish... Continue reading

I remember what it felt like being a freshman and trying to sign up for classes. Waiting patiently for that slot in that class you would like to fit in next semester hoping and begging to get in even though all the upperclassmen are signed up for it to. Waiting patiently for the time to hit that 7:00 mark to click submit and hope for the best. Having to fix and slot classes differently to make the schedule work or have to change it after classes are already full. I promise you freshman as the years go by and you get closer to your senior year last semester of classes you are so saddened that this is the last time this will happen, you wont have to choose classes next year as you will no longer be here, no more waiting for that time to hit 7:00 or fighting for...

one of the many memories I have from Norwich is the many lives me and many Norwich students have saved and helped by donating blood for the blood drive. My freshman year was the first time I have done it and ever since then I have made the decision to do it over and over again in and out of Norwich. Giving blood is now something I have made totally part of my life to try and give people blood who may need it. Although to some the needle is the most threatening thing out of the whole situation it is not the worst thing I promise you. That feeling you get after filling a whole bag with blood for people who could really use it make it so worth it. After graduation this year I plan to make it a yearly ritual to make sure I continue to do... Continue reading

Knowing thanksgiving break is fastly approaching that means the first semester of my last year is coming to an end. As I wake up I watch the calendar move day by day closer to the day I have pushed myself to its fullest for. I also know it is getting closer and closer to the next year for each and every student they too are a semester closer to graduation. As time passes at Norwich the one thing I have taken with me is to make as memories as you can and do your best 100% of the time. As your years and semesters go by you will see that it is not only you who is watching your progress as it is also the rook platoon which you get recognized with, the company which you are apart of, the professors and friends which you have chosen. As you grow... Continue reading

I hope each and every person on this campus had the best time ever this weekend at the regimental ball. I know as a senior this has been the best since freshman year. From the senior dinner, to walking through the doors with my rook company and platoon, to finally dancing and jamming the night away. Honestly the most surprising thing to me had been the numbers of people who had actually been left in each of our platoons from freshman year. Noticing my company went to at least half the numbers had surprised me. Although it had been much smaller all of the students had managed to have a great time. One thing that I hope for the students for the next couple of years, remember to have as much fun as you possibly can and never give up. I know the start it hard, but as soon as... Continue reading

One thing that I will forever take with me is the life I have been given to live the last four years as a Norwich University women's rugby player. Starting as a rook I walked into a sport that I have never played before never realizing how much it would soon one day mean so much to me and be so hard to leave. As I step onto the pitch and into the new clubhouse tomorrow before our last home game for senior night I plan to think of the many women who stood before me and the women who will come after. I hope and pray that they too get the same amazing experiences I have gotten to receive on this team. Not just as a sister or player but as a captain as well. I could never be more grateful for the experiences I have been given while... Continue reading

Wow I can’t believe how fast time goes. My four years here have passed before my eyes in under a semester and a half I will be a Norwich grad. To the freshman the best advice I could give you is never give up and keep pushing on. I know it’s tough as you got to see your parents last weekend and saying bye is never easy but I promise you as time goes by it gets much more easier. As a sophomore get to know and do as much as you can if it’s sports,working, or even a specialty unit this is your time to shine with not much on your plate so don’t forget to get a job in the corps it’s so much fun. Junior year is here and your so excited just a few months until you receive your junior ring. Don’t forget to enjoy your... Continue reading

I hope everybody has an awesome summer. If you are one of those students who just feel as learning is something they love to do definitely look into the awesome classes that Norwood university offers during the summer. I myself have not tried taking any summer classes yet however this semester during the summer of 2021 I plan to take one or two courses over the summer to help me stay ahead of the game to graduate. There are many but limited classes in the summer however I feel the best part about the summer classes is the chance students get to know professors one on one due to the low student to professor ratio. I know so many people who talk all about the summer classes and how they were able to work with the professor to better understand the subjecting which they were learning. I know sometimes people...

One of the biggest changes I have made in the last semester is the eligibility to learn remotely compared to in class studies. I had been given the opportunity to study from home due to this unfortunate pandemic that had gone on the last few semesters. Due to my choosing I felt as staying home had been a good idea the first semester due to not really knowing what this COVID-19 was all about. However the second semester when I had seen the number of rises in COVID-19 had made me realize that maybe it was still best for me to stay home and keep myself and other student safe. I have to say that learning from home was very different than the on-campus atmosphere I had been used to but to me it also had given me a different perspective of when I’m in school Learning versus at home....

Is it me or has this year flown by fast. Within the last year we as a school altogether have faced many problems that were given straight to us. I have to say I have never been so proud of being a student of such an awesome school who works so well with working around unfortunate problematic situations such as a pandemic. I feel is at first it may have been hard for Norwich to figure out a way to work around the rules and regulations that the COVID-19 pandemic had restricted us to but as time went by it started to get a little bit easier in getting through a routine that we would continue to accomplish going forward. I can’t imagine the amount of things Norwich has found a way to work around within these restrictions from the cafeteria, to the classrooms, to the dorms at Norwich, they... Continue reading

I don’t know about you but when finishing off the semester you wonder what you could of done to change a grade from a class or the way the class went that semester. I always think to myself the changes I could’ve made in order to better myself for the semester. But as the years go on the one thing I have realized that has stuck with me is the motivation and determination to finish off the semester. However due to the unfortunate circumstances of the last two semesters I feel as this may have been a real pushed down for each and everyone of us Norwich students. So for those of us who have gone through the year doing what we need passing our classes and staying active as much as we can within the Norwich community I just want to say congratulations we did it. We got through... Continue reading

One of the hardest things to face while being at college is the loss of a family or friend. While attending Norwich I have been through the loss of my grandmother and have been around for the loss of a few of our classmates. This school had managed to make me feel thankful for choosing it during that time. The amount of love and support I had received was so mind blowing to feel so loved during such a hard time. So I hope for any of you going through anything during this time of craziness or anybody who needs anybody to talk to or vent to during this virus and also unfortunate loss of our classmate know that we are here and we are willing to help. I can’t speak for every cadet at Norwich but as a rook even to my rook siblings and friends in the corps... Continue reading

Something that Covid will never take from us guys is the pride we have for the campus we go through. This past week I received one of the biggest achievements Norwich cadets receive. As I waited patiently differently than many of the Norwich alumni have before I received my junior ring in the mail to my porch. As a junior I am so thankful for being given the chance to receive my ring and for everything Norwich has given me. There is nothing that makes you feel more accomplished and ready to finish Norwich off with a big hurrah then receive this beautiful piece of Norwich. So as you go through your experiences at Norwich remember why you came, why you continue to proceed and finish it off right. I hope you get a chance to experience Norwich and all the fun with it that I have been able to... Continue reading

some thing that I’ve learned at Norwich is that if you feel you are not succeeding in a class you should talk to as many people as you can and get help with as many resources as possible. I have had some problems with the CJ course that I have been taking and I have realized that the support system that Norwich gives you it’s something like no other. I have gotten help from the writing center the academic achievement center, and so many teachers who have known that is long as you try it is all that counts. Knowing that doing classes online is not the same as in person I know that a lot of you may be having a hard time with one or a few courses. So make sure while being at home and for those of you freshman unfamiliar with the resources in which you... Continue reading

I have to say this semester is so bizarre with everything going on. But for the many of you still on campus we are here if you need any advice or anyone to talk to. For those of you at home or going home I know it stinks that you are on campus and not in person but you have to think of the pros of being home. I know sometimes it is hard all you can think about is the cons but it is for the best and safety of all of us. And to those many kids who are thinking of going home but feel a they will be named a “quitter” if they go, that is not how it works. You will not be considered a quitter and I feel as it is something you have to think about and do on your own. I hope you... Continue reading
