"A common misconception about our Corps of Cadets here at Norwich University is that there is a military service obligation after graduation. Or there is nothing to gain from the Corps other than military training. That's simply not the case. I chose the corps not only for the military training value, but also for the discipline, self-confidence, public speaking, professionalism, and flexibility." Kaylee
