Here at Norwich there are a variety of productive things you can do to either improve yourself mentally, physically, or morally. Mentally, you can go to the Kreitzberg Library to complete homework, plan your day, or just brush up on some reading. You can also invest some time into looking at Norwich History, with over 200 years of history, there is something to intrigue everyone. Physically, you can go to Plumley Armory. You can lift weights, get cardio in or even swim in Goodyear Pool. You can go there with friends and workout or just go alone… whatever suits your preference of the day. Morally, you could go to the Chapel during Non-Denominational service. There is plenty to pick up, whatever is accustom to you. Also, you can read up on the Norwich guiding values, honor code, and Cadet’s Creed. There is a lot of morally influencing information in those... Continue reading

James “Jack” C. Abare was a great role model in the Norwich community. Annually, holding the Abare Family Picnic, Jack was a very special person that we all hold dear to us. Jack Abare became a Norwich alumnus in 1957, commissioning as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army upon graduation. His deeds of service stretched far past his four years at Norwich, he really stressed making a difference for others. In the Wise Campus Center, the 2nd floor of the dining area is called the Abare Dining Hall, named in Jack’s name. Next time just walking around campus, just think to yourself about the amazing impact the Abare family made on this institution. Make sure you really come to appreciate everything Jack and his family has done, then start to think… how can you make a difference and keep Jack’s name dear to you? Continue reading

There are ample opportunities to get involved at Norwich… such as volunteering! There are several volunteering events at Norwich University. I encourage everyone to get involved with volunteering. To get involved, go to Norwich Civic Center for Engagement online. You can find events, register, and plan your impacts. It also tracks your hours and number of events you participated in. In order to start registering, you must make an account online. It is a very simple setup and you can register in minutes. Getting involved will give you more to do, keep you busy, and give you an opportunity to make an accomplishment in the community. I encourage everyone to make an account and just start. I’m looking forward to seeing you all at different events! Continue reading

For those Rooks out there that are going through their days just doing everything to the Cadre’s expectation just living day to day, something big is coming… That’s right, Family Parent Weekend! It is from October 8th to October 10th.

I believe this will be a great time to unwind and take a mental load off of your mind. Stress has been accumulating and now you can take it easy. I am looking forward to seeing you all on Family Parent Weekend and I hope you all enjoy it. Continue reading

Blog #2: Don't Worry, Everything Will Be Alright As August 22nd approaches quickly, Rooks may be starting to get nervous and start overthinking how their first experience at Norwich will go with all new people, a new place, and even the COVID-19 Delta Variant becoming more prevalent.

Blog #1: The Beginning Hello, my name is James Leary. For this first blog I will introduce myself, explore my goals, and tell you what I am looking forward to at Norwich. To everyone who is also new to blogging, I am looking forward to working along side of you during our time at Norwich. To all of my fellow Rooks and Civilian Students, I am looking forward to meeting you all and creating bonds that will last a lifetime. So, let's get into it! I am from the coal region in a small-town called Gilberton, PA. I have wanted to be in the military since I was 11 years old, so when my senior year came along I looked into the Senior Military Colleges and Norwich University had just stood out and intrigued me from the beginning. So, I applied for a Mechanical Engineering major in the Corps of... Continue reading
