This photo is from Rookdom, in December 2018. As a freshman, my friends and I did a lot of volunteering in the community. Volunteering opened so many opportunities for us to see Vermont and to have an escape from the Norwich campus. As a rook, it’s nice to have a break - even if just for a couple of hours. This particular event was in the Northfield Square and on one of our breaks we were able to go see Santa. Many of my friends enjoy volunteering and are officers in the Rotaract Club on campus. This club is still in the early years so it can be hard to make as big of an impact as we would like, but we’re working on it!
This photo is from this past year’s Thanksgiving dinner. This dinner is always one of the highlights - good food and a rook family reunion. We even had some rook siblings that left Norwich after freshman year come back for the event and to see everybody. It’s great that even after everyone goes their separate ways after freshman year - whether just in different companies or in completely different states - we can come together with events like this.
