I cannot stress how important it is that you become involved in extracurricular activities at Norwich. I have found that especially for my major (CSIA) I have learned as much in the clubs as I have in my courses this year. I have been involved in projects and have learned a lot from talking and working with upperclassmen.
One club I am in is ACM (Association for Computing Machinery). This club is composed of mostly computer science and computer security majors but is open to all students. I was fortunate enough to be elected secretary of this club at the beginning of the spring semester. The president of ACM set up lecture series at the beginning of the semester and we have had guest speakers come to our club every week when we meet. These presenters consist of students, professors, and professionals in the computing field. We have had two professionals come to Norwich. The first was Jay Grant from AccessData and the second Billy Austin from iScan Online. They both gave fantastic presentations on their expert perspectives on the computing world.
I am so glad I got involved in extracurriculars. I would not have the knowledge, the friends, or the availability of opportunities I have available to me if I were not involved in extracurriculars.
