My first weekend on campus was an experience I will never forget. I've met people from not only around the country but around the world. There's people from Puerto Rico, The Dominican Republic, Sweden, the Philippines, and many more.This gave me a broad view of how diverse Norwich is as a institution. This makes me feel like I'm at home as New York as people from all around the world.
Students at Norwich are some of the most genuine people I've ever met in my life. I don't feel uncomfortable or intimidated to go and approach students. This previous Sunday I hiked up a mountain with the other civilian freshman and I made a lot of friends by simply just going up and starting a conversation with students. This is something that Isn't too common from where I come from. People in New York can be very standoffish, this definitely can detour people from wanting to start conversations and be friendly.
I'm surely looking forward to meeting more people as my life as a Norwich student has just started. I hope we all have a nice fun and productive 4 years at Norwich University.
