Norwich University’s New Residence Hall to be Named Dalrymple Hall

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich officials announced that they will name the university’s newly constructed, $23.2 million civilian student residence hall Dalrymple Hall in honor of current university trustee Peter Dalrymple ’65 and his wife Marlene ‘66, of Houston, Texas, in recognition of their lifetime of philanthropy to the university.

The modern, energy efficient residence located next to South Hall, opened in Fall 2014 as the second of a three-building plan to house civilian students on campus. With 182 bedrooms, Dalrymple Hall has capacity for 285 occupants.

Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), among other aspects, Dalrymple Hall uses strategies that reduce water usage by over 25 percent, and is heated by steam produced from Norwich’s biomass plant.

The Dalrymples gave the lead gift for a fund-raising challenge established by Norwich Trustee Emerita COL (IL) Jennifer N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), and the Tawani Foundation, which committed $25 million in advance of the University’s $100 million Forging the Future 2019 Bicentennial campaign.

At the time, Peter Dalrymple said: “Marlene and I want to make sure that other young men and women have the same opportunity that we had to develop our strong values and moral compass. This country would be a much better place if all or our leaders in government and industry had Norwich training and values.”

The couple participated in the funding of the $5.7 million renovation of Sabine Field in 2013 from a grass playing field to a synthetic turf field and illuminated stadium and also provided a $1 million challenge for his class to celebrate their 50th reunion.

“The rewards of a Norwich education far exceed any gift we could give back to the university,” said Peter and Marlene Dalrymple. “We are humbled and honored to have this residence named Dalrymple Hall.”

Norwich Nets $125K Grant to Support Tech Upgrades During $6.5M Library Renovation

NORTHFIELD, Vt. – Norwich University has received a $125,000 grant from the George I. Alden Trust to support technology upgrades during the renovation of Kreitzberg Library.

Ground was broken on the $6.5 million library renovation last December. The project will add new workstations, group-study and collaborative-learning areas, a café and social gathering place, and significant technology upgrades. Improvements include a ten-fold increase in data speeds and capacity and a digital media commons, all to engage active learning. Students will be able to gather to study, exchange ideas, and socialize in a state-of-the-art learning environment.

The renovations will also expand the Academic Achievement Center and increase space for university counseling services and are slated to be completed before the start of the fall 2015 semester.

Kreitzberg Library was constructed 22 years ago at a time when campus libraries were designed to be “cathedrals of the book.” In a sign of how rapidly the computer and information age has transformed higher education and society, campus libraries on the leading edge today are designed to be “cathedrals of learning.” The Kreitzberg Library renovation puts the Norwich campus library squarely in the latter category.

The Kreitzberg Library renovation is part of a broader campus transformation tied to Norwich’s $100M comprehensive campaign in the lead-up to the university’s bicentennial in 2019. Initiatives include a $24M new academic building and $28M in renovations to existing academic buildings.

About the George I. Alden Trust

George I. Alden established the George I. Alden Trust on August 24, 1912. The Trust was established for the general purpose of “the maintenance of some charitable or philanthropic enterprises” with particular expressed interest in “the promotion of education in schools, colleges, or other educational institutions.” The Trustees focus their grant making on capital needs and support institutions that demonstrate a combination of educational excellence, exciting programming, and efficient and effective administration.

Norwich Students Climb Mountains, In and Out of Classroom

February 12, 2015

Taking advantage of the abundant snow and ice this winter, eight Norwich students recently tried their hand at ice-climbing in Bolton Quarry in nearby Bolton Valley, Vermont. Ice climbing guide Josh Bossin (pictured in blue) led the outing for the first-time climbers. The day-long event was sponsored by the Norwich University College Activities Board through the university’s Shaw Outdoor Center. The event was the latest in an ongoing series of programs designed to expose students to new outdoor activities or build on existing climbing and cold weather survival skills.
