In the News

Sabine Field Renovation
As part of Bearing theTorch, the University’s current three-year fundraiser, Sabine Field will soon have a synthetic turf surface, allowing multiple teams, including soccer and lacrosse, to play in front of home crowds in the bleachers – even on the same day. “The challenge with the field currently is that we basically use it five times a year for football,” says Athletic Director Tony Mariano. “The field gets torn up in a game and you really can’t do anything with it for a week or even a week and a half.”

in biology lab

Chad Anderson has wildly divergent interests. Through much of the fall and winter, he spends his time on the ice of Norwich University’s Kreitzberg Arena hockey rink, where he’s one of the Cadets’ top scorers. With games, travel and practice on top of classes, it’s tough for the third-year student to find time for another passion; isolating strands of RNA from yeast cultures. “The weeks you’re not busy, you try to get into the lab,” said the biology major from Nova Scotia.

Alumni, are you ready for the upcoming economic recovery?

In the next few months, as you and your professional colleagues engage in Strategic Workforce Planning, please save the dates and plan to attend one or both of the job fairs at Norwich. Contact

Thursday, March 25 - Criminal Justice Job Fair. This job fair also attracts other social science majors, such as psychology, political science, international studies, etc., as well as students from other disciplines.

Thursday, April 8 - All Majors Job Fair. As the name denotes, this job fair attracts candidates from all disciplines.
