Cadets and civilians

Civilian and RookFor more than 20 years, cadets and civilian students have shared the same campus at Norwich University, creating one of the most distinctive college cultures in the nation.

In many regards, students in both lifestyles lead similar lives. They attend the same classes, play on the same athletic teams and enjoy clubs and extracurricular activities together. While cadets and civilian students live in separate residences, a walk through the library, dining hall or gymnasium will show all students living, learning, working and playing together.

We’ve learned that students from both lifestyles choose Norwich for similar reasons—rigorous academics, robust athletic programs, a rich variety of extracurricular activities and a safe environment. Ultimately, everyone wants college to be challenging, a good value and a special time in their lives.

Two lifestyles on one college campus allow students to tailor their college experience. We do our best to make sure students understand the unique dynamic of Norwich before they enroll. Ultimately, the best way to find out if Norwich is right for you is to pay us a visit. After spending time on campus and talking to Corps and civilian students, you can begin to understand the relationship between these two lifestyles.
