Norwich University, established in the year 1819 - The Military College of Vermont is a private not-for-profit, 4 years institution located in Northfield, Vermont. It was established in 1819 as American Literary, Scientific, and Military Academy, and is the oldest of the six senior military colleges of the United States.

Norwich University is recognized by the United States Department of Defense as the birthplace of the Reserved Officers’ Training Corps. About two-thirds of the residential students in Norwich join the “Corps of Cadets” and are trained in a military-styled and structured environment in order to excel as great leaders of tomorrow. Some of the famous alumni of this great institution are Ernest N. Harmon, Edward H. Brooks, George Colvocoresses, etc.

Only a handful of universities across the US have a legacy as great as Norwich University. It is not just the two centuries old longevity of the institution that is responsible for its legacy. The most advanced and successful education system in the world, the education students across the world seek, the system that transformed civilization and modern society, started at Norwich.

There are many firsts which the university has which add to the legacy of Norwich. In 1974, the university admitted women to the Corps of Cadets, which, in retrospect, was revolutionary. It was also the first private college in the United States to teach engineering even in 1819 when the rest of the world was focusing on classical education. The young nation needed tech-savvy youth who could bring innovation in the field of agriculture, and infrastructure and build the nation from scratch. With that said, Norwich University provided the nation one of the first batches of civil engineers.
