What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
A small, private, expensive college placed right in the middle of a beautiful Green Mountain valley of Vermont. The Corp of Cadets is the base of it's strong traditions with a twist of mainly Architecture, Engineering, and Athletic Civilians. Some students (like myself) love it here, others despise it.
Norwich University is a small, beautiful, historical campus split down the center: One half is civilian, the other is the corps of cadets. The classes are small with about 20 students and the work is challenging, but very rewarding. The University has a large price tag, but a lot of benefits accompany it.
