Welcome to Norwich University; the birthplace of the Reserve Officer Training Corps and home of our nation's oldest private military college.
The past, present, and future of Norwich University is filled with a unique, inspiring history that has made Norwich a leader in higher education. Founded in 1819 upon the precepts of both patriotism and service, the proud legacy of Norwich University is one of character, courage, and commitment.
Our founding fathers had the foresight to build a school that not only educated students academically and mentally but nurtured them spiritually. Our students are taught how to lead and how to serve—and that starts with our traditions. Our first tradition is the Pass in Review in April, celebrating the birth of our beloved university. During Parade Week in October, our Corps of Cadets are put to the test with a rigorous schedule of events and drill competitions.
We are proud of our reputation as an institution of military excellence and academic distinction—and we take that very seriously. We strive to provide our students with a sense of shared purpose and identity while also arming them with the skills they need to be successful in their professional lives.
