Michael Popowski (NU ’64), of Northfield, reads the long list of names (78) of people who were each recognized by having their name carved into a granite step on the new Norwich Bicentennial Stairs to the large crowd on hand last Thursday afternoon on the Norwich Campus. Mr. Popowski, who is a very active Norwich alumnus, headed up the committee that selected which names were put on the stairs. A crowd of about 500 people was on hand for the dedication of the Bicentennial Stairs and the ribbon cutting ceremony. The new stairs go from the Sullivan Museum to the Upper Parade Ground.

Bicentennial Stairs Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

In commemoration of Norwich’s Bicentennial, a stairway constructed between the southeast corner of the Upper Parade and the Sullivan Museum and History Center memorializes 78 individuals who made significant contributions to the development and legacy of the University in its second century.
Norwich’s leaders, distinguished alumni and others from military and civilian careers and those who represent “firsts” at Norwich are represented on these monuments. They serve as a tribute and daily reminder of those who personify Capt. Partridge’s ideals and exemplify Norwich’s mission “to make moral, patriotic, effective and useful citizens.” #Norwich200 #NUHomecoming

To Norwich Students, Faculty, Staff, Parents, Alumni and Friends:

As you may be aware, the Norwich family experienced a heartbreaking tragedy early Sunday morning when student Keanan Thompson died in a car accident on I-91 in Weathersfield, Vermont. It is with a heavy heart that I share this news with you.

Keanan was a senior in the Corps of Cadets, and a Dean's List student majoring in Criminal Justice who was planning to commission into the U. S. Army. He had deep ties to Norwich University and in his hometown community.

The Counseling and Wellness Center has staff who are on-call. Students call call the crisis line if in crisis at 802-793-3093. The Counseling and Wellness Center, located in Kreitzberg Library, will be open for walk in appointments at 8 a.m. Also, Rev. Wick has office hours throughout the afternoon and evening for anyone wishing to access these resources for support in order to process this extraordinary news.

The Norwich family's thoughts and prayers are with Keanan's family, friends and community.

The Norwich University Corps of Cadets will conduct an Echo Taps ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 10 p.m. on the Upper Parade Ground. Echo Taps is a solemn Corps of Cadets ceremony meant to emulate a military memorial service. The Regimental Commander requests a formation of the Corps, an extra bugler, and a firing detail to carry out the ceremony. The entire Norwich community is invited to attend the ceremony (IAW NUSRR Dress code).

We will share information about services as we receive it.

In Sympathy,

Richard W. Schneider
President

On this solemn day that is etched into the memories of all Americans, I had the pleasure of joining Mr. Gonneville's walking group to school to remember the victims and the heroes of 9/11. We did the pledge of allegiance at the common and the Veterans home. Thank you for the invite. #NeverForget #America

500 Norwich freshmen of the Cadet Corps marched up Union Brook Road in a column of twos last Saturday morning arriving at the Abare Farm. The freshmen were arriving for the annual “Rooks Dining Out”, a day of fun activities, food and fellowship away from their regular training. This is the 34th year that the event has been sponsored by Jack Abare, NU 57 who owns the farm on Union Brook Road. Jack was there to welcome the rooks as were his sons and grandsons.
