Pre-Arrival Reception for Rooks & Families
Are you in town early for Rook Arrival? Don't sit anxiously in your hotel room waiting to report to campus on Sunday morning. Students and their families are invited to join us for a pre-arrival reception hosted by the Norwich Families organization. Meet fellow members of the Class of 2026 and their families, and hear brief remarks from University leaders.
