NU paintball team exemplified the best

To the Editor:

As someone that is not normally moved to action by demonstrations of personal integrity, I find myself in the odd situation where I feel the need to contact Norwich University to see that a particular group of cadets is recognized in a manner befitting their achievement.  The group to which I am referring is the Norwich cadets who attended the “The Paintballing Dead” event at EMR Paintball Park in New Milford, Pa.,  on March 22nd, 23rd, and 24th.

The President’s Corner: A homecoming for ‘Sabine Sally’

In a few weeks Sabine Sally will be returned to the Norwich campus. Since December, 2010, the tank has been in New Jersey being refurbished. Once completed it will be ready to stand guard at the newly renovated Sabine Field and serve as an important reminder of our history well into the next century. [Read more…]

‘Race for Recovery’

Pat Morales, a Northfield High School graduate of 2009 – distinguished athlete in baseball, cross country, basketball, and hockey – started his Norwich University career in the fall of 2011.

During winter break of that year, Pat sustained a traumatic brain injury that left him in a vegetative state, according to doctors.  His family was told that Pat had no remaining brain activity and that he was not going to survive.

Despite the prognosis, Pat not only has survived but has thrived and is well on his way to what can only be described as a miraculous recovery.  On Sunday, April 28th, an organizing committee of his friends, neighbors and loved ones will host the Race for Recovery – a 5K to raise the $5,000 he needs in order for him to someday reach his dream of running again.

The event will also feature a 1-mile race for children, and a Zumbathon.  All proceeds will go to benefit Pat’s recovery. To register or learn more, visit the Race for Recovery table in the Wise Campus Center Monday – Friday during lunchtime, visit the Center for Civic Engagement in WCC 230 or email 4achange@norwich.edu.

Run. Love. Hope. Be a part of the miracle.”

THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID…

I sat there and stared at the sheet music on my stand as my first senior moment hit me. As my solo entrance blew right by, I held the flute to my lips as my mind realized that this was the last band concert I would perform in at Norwich University. [Read more…]
