33 ideas big and small from Norwich students, faculty, staff, and alumni that are transforming campus and the world.
Launched four-and-a-half years ago as a way to attract and retain exceptional students, the Norwich Honors Program graduated its inaugural class of honor students in 2015. Today, 75 students are currently following the honors track, which begins with a first-year honors seminar and concludes with a senior-year thesis—with many enriching challenges in between. “Students advance their critical thinking ability beyond the level typically expected of undergraduates,” says Darlene Olsen, an associate professor of mathematics who coordinates the program. By senior year, students are ready for graduate-level work.
