Today I woke up to the alarm beeping around 0430, because our company had a 3-mile foot march at 0530 . I however was unable to attend the march because Cross-Country team had a race at Colby-Sawyer College. During yesterdays practice, the upperclassmen instructed that all the Rooks meet at 0630 in Andrew's Hall to walk down to the WCC to get our pre-packed breakfast. (To do all the dirty work). My Cross Country Rook cousins and I squared down to the locker room, around 0545, to change into our sports gear so that we would be there earlier. All 9 of us meet at the lobby ready to go to the WCC and for the first time in 2 weeks we were able to walk normally; no squaring, no formation and etc. This felt weird but also nice at the same time. The drive to Colby-Sawyer was about an... Continue reading

One important thing that I have learned during my 10 days of being a Rook, is that everyone is here to help you; your cadre, your rook siblings/cousins and your professors. I believe that our cadre members are the ones who help us the most. Even though they yell at us, they are there to help us become better people and help us to reach our potential. They teach us things and expect us to maintain the standards that they have set for us. I personally try to think that every time they have us pushing. Our rook siblings/cousins/buddies are also an important aspect in helping with stressful times. Just today one of my rook brothers shared a inspirational speech to our whole platoon. We all agreed that we needed this video to motivate us and remind us of why we chose to attend Norwich and especially the Corps of... Continue reading

So last week was a busy week for us Rooks. Rook week was both mentally and physically demanding; getting yelled at, having to quickly remember names and the list goes on. But now we have started our academic semester. Since Monday (Aug.26), our stress levels have slightly gone down, but there still is the anxiety of finding classes and perhaps if you want to continue your major. For me, I have been having doubts if I would like to continues studying mechanical engineering for the next 4 years. I know it has only been 3 days, but I would like to find something I would enjoy being in. So far I do have classes that I enjoy and some that will take time to get used to. (Chemistry...hint, hint) To conclude, I just would like to wish everyone good luck in your studies this fall semester! Continue reading

Hello! My name is Katerina Schmitt. This coming fall, in about 5 days, I will be an incoming freshman in the Corps of Cadets and a student athlete. I have been currently living in Kyiv, Ukraine with my family for the past three years. Over the course of 18 years, I have lived in 6 countries including; Uzbekistan, Moldova, Republic of Georgia, Ukraine and the United States. I first learned about Norwich, by attending the Future Leaders Camp last summer. I felt that it was a great place for me to go to. I also wanted to participate in the ROTC program and to be in the Corps of Cadets. The strong bond between the Corp of Cadets is also what gravitated me towards choosing Norwich as my number one school. I am most excited for the challenges and the new experiences that I will be going through my first... Continue reading
