Founded in 1819, Norwich University is a private school in northern Vermont and the oldest private military college in the United States. The Birthplace of the ROTC, Norwich confers degrees in over 50 academic programs. Approximately two-thirds of Norwich’s student population join the university’s Corps of Cadets while the rest are civilians. First year cadets at Norwich are known as “rooks” and are required to participate in Rook Basic Skills Training and Rook Orientation culminating in a one mile Dog River Run.
to be quite honest when i went here for the scholarship competition i was blown away not only by the campus but by the corps of cadets and how the teachers taught the classes. i found it to be my dream school because of every aspect i was looking for in a school was hit. other than the price i would tell everyone to go here regardless if they're civilian or corps.
