Dear Norwich Community,

It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the tragic and untimely death of Cadet Michael Dickinson yesterday. Michael was a senior in the criminal justice program, on a commissioning track with the U.S. Marine Corps and a beloved member of Cavalry Company. He came from Cheshire, Connecticut.

A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, October 15 at 6:30 PM at the 1st Congregational Church, 111 Church Drive, in Cheshire, CT. Norwich is providing free transportation from campus for students, faculty and staff interested in attending. Reservations can be made through Rev. William Wick at 802-485-2128.

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University has raised $55 million towards its newly launched five-year, $100 million comprehensive fundraising campaign known as “Forging the Future.” University President Richard W.
