Norwich University is proud to be the birthplace of America’s Reserve Officer Training Corps marking 100 years of Commissioned Officer Development in 2016.
Our Army, Navy and Air Force teams are integrated into the leadership and administration of Norwich’s mission of producing leaders for our nation. Their military science coursework is a key component of the Corps of Cadets professional development and an opportunity for any student lifestyle to learn about leadership and the military profession. All Norwich Corps Cadets chose a military education path whether or not pursing a commission. There are many opportunities to choose which Service is right for you.
Prior to arrival at Norwich, do your homework and check out each Service’s website, talk to serving friends and family, or simply call up a recruiter. Our Norwich ROTCs will welcome your call and you can call or stop by anytime. As the first year at Norwich begins, first year Norwich cadets “Rooks” will have face to face opportunity to align with a Service and can change that service as their understanding and professional goals develop. The Service ROTC teams work closely together to ensure all Norwich Cadets meet their professional goals and they will help guide you along the way.
