Norwich Forever! Campaign

Life income with your gift to Norwich: establish a charitable gift annuity
By establishing a charitable gift annuity you make an irrevocable gift to Norwich in exchange for a current tax deduction for a portion of the gift and a guaranteed fixed income stream for life. In the current investment environment the gift annuity rates are very competitive and lock in a guaranteed return for life. For details and current rates, visit www.alumni.norwich.edu/
fixedrate

The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 renewed the provision to allow individuals to make charitable contributions tax-free using retirement assets. This legislation replaced the Pension Protection Act of 2006 and will allow tax-free contributions of up to $100,000 per year for individuals aged 70 ½ and older.
For more information please contact Jessica Dunkel ‘02, Planned Giving Officer, at (802) 485-2328 or jdunkel@norwich.edu or visit www.alumni.norwich.edu/

Take advantage of your employer's matching gift program
So you've just dropped a gift to Norwich into the mail and now you're considering which item to tackle next on your to-do list - mowing the yard or washing your car. Before moving on to that chore, take a moment to learn if your employer operates a matching gift program. If it does, you may be able to double your gift to the University.

Norwich Rooks. Photo by Jay Ericson.Norwich welcomes record-breaking Rook Class

Norwich students learn a lesson in relative values
For Americans, a pencil is useful for marking nail holes or tallying golf scores. But in the Republic of The Gambia, the simple tool of wood and graphite has far greater powers. “When you can put a huge, warm smile on someone’s face just by giving them something as small as a pencil,” says Emily Shapiro, a psychology major from Middlesex, Vermont, “it lights a fire inside of you that you never knew you had.”

Shapiro is one of several NU students who traveled to the tiny West African country to study primary and secondary education and perform service in schools.

2009 NU grad wins brutal Vermont Death Race
Barely a month after graduating from Norwich, three alums with a yen for challenge and adventure competed in (and finished) The Vermont Death Race, a brutal combination of the IronMan triathlon, ESPN’s Outdoor Games, and network reality shows like “Survivor’’ and “The Amazing Race.’’ One of them, Tom Worthington, a 22-year-old Marine from West Falmouth, Mass., crossed the finish line first. Read the story as covered by Boston Globe correspondent Brion O'Connor.

Residency road warriors
It may seem harder to make friends in an online classroom than on a university campus, but don't tell that to Jerome Devitt, William O'Brien and Tod Rathbone.
The three Master of Arts in Military History (MMH) students forged a friendship in cyberspace that began during their first week of class and culminated in a two-week military history road trip — a trip O'Brien jokingly dubbed "The Greater Northeast U.S. Battlefield and Monuments Tour."

NU Sports News

NU rugby player represents U.S. team in Nations Cup
When Katie Hathaway arrived on campus in August 2008, she had no idea she would play rugby. A three-sport athlete in high school, Hathaway had never touched a rugby ball, but after an outstanding freshman season, she was asked to attend the Under-20 National team player camp, and the following April was offered a spot on the squad. In July, Katie and 24 other elite female rugby players travelled to London to represent the United States in the Nations Cup.
