You are invited to the NU Club of Washington, D.C.'s 2022 student sendoff, hosted by our alumni partners at Xelevate for the 2nd year in a row. Join us for a day of food, fun, and camaraderie with local area alumni, student,s and families, as well as an immersive and unique experience on the Xelevate campus.

Xelevate is the capital region’s first-ever Uncrewed Systems (Drone) Center of Excellence, a 66-acre facility just outside of Leesburg, VA, the first of its kind, co-founded by Norwich alumni! This event will offer a unique opportunity for incoming and current students, alumni, and families to learn how Norwich is at the forefront of an exciting, emerging tech space.

During this send off you will hear from Xelevate’s team (many of whom are NU grads), as they brief attendee’s on the benefits of becoming an FAA Certified Part 107 Commercial Drone Pilot, and the many career options available to those who enter the drone world! With Xelevate serving as a "center of gravity" for the innovative and inspiring ways we see this technology becoming ingrained into everyday society, this event will act as a first introduction to the myriad of industries, government, and military applications that drones will be used for!

Students, alumni, and families will also get to learn about how they can obtain their Commercial Drone Pilots License with the right tools, techniques, and tradecraft to not only launch a career but to make a difference in their communities! With an immersive day at Xelevate, students will get hands-on experience flying drones on a simulator both fixed-wing and quadcopter with our staff as well!

In addition, Dr. Frank Vanecek, Senior VP for Strategic Planning and NU Computer Science Professor will be attending, along with his wife Diane Vanecek, Class of 1979 alumnus and former Academic Registrar Assistant at Norwich.

Xelevate looks forward to hosting this first of it's kind Norwich experience as they send off the future students from the DC area to the Hill.
