Parent & Family Weekend

Beginning with the Parent & Family Buffet Dinner on Thursday evening, this weekend is a chance to visit with your son or daughter and absorb the campus and culture of Norwich University. Enjoy guided tours, receptions, athletics and demonstrations of the heritage of the country’s oldest private military college. For Rooks, in particular, this weekend is a welcomed break from the rigors of Corps training. This is a weekend you won’t want to miss!
