Homecoming 2014 In Review:
What a weekend! Approximately 2,500 alumni and friends were on the Hill for four days of festivities that included the launch of Norwich’s countdown to the Bicentennial and dozens of Homecoming activities.
HOMECOMING HIGHLIGHTS: THROUGH THE YEARS
Nearly 1,200 people filled Shapiro Field House on Friday night for the Bicentennial Kick-Off Gala that launched the Forging the Future Campaign & Commemoration. The inspiring program included performances by the Norwich University Shock Platoon and country music legend Aaron Tippin, plus the premiere of the Forging the Future video.
Other Homecoming events included Retreat and Alumni parades, outstanding athletic competitions, reunion dinners and spectacular fireworks displays on both Friday and Saturday nights! Not to mention the many opportunities for people to catch up with old friends and classmates.
