Club & Chapter News – Fall 2017

Burlington Networking Social
More than 30 alumni, students, faculty, and staff attended the spring networking social at Good Measure Brewing Co., Northfield’s new microbrewery. The NU Club of Burlington hosted the event after hearing that many students were unable to attend a Norwich | Connects networking event during Spring Break. It was a great opportunity for students to network close to campus. Brian Gibbons ’99, a member of the NU Alumni Association, paid a surprise visit.

Hawaii Dinner Social
A group of 13 from the NU Club of Hawaii came together in May to enjoy an outdoor dinner and good conversation.

Denver Rugby Social
The Norwich men’s rugby team claimed its first New England Collegiate Rugby Conference Tournament title in April to secure a spot in the USA Rugby Division II 7s National Championship Tournament in Denver. The NU Club of Denver hosted a social to connect with the team while they were in town. Unfortunately, due to poor weather, only two alumni were able to attend, but it was still a great time. The team sang “Happy Birthday” to Molly Patterson ’10 and gifted her with a Norwich warmup top.

Boston Red Sox Social and Game
In May, 50 alumni, students, and family members came together to cheer on the Boston Red Sox. The evening began with a social at Pizzeria Uno, with food graciously provided by the insurance company owned by Tony Agnitti ’84. The group then walked to Fenway to enjoy an intense rivalry between the Sox and the Texas Rangers.

Atlanta Service Event
On May 21, the NU Club of Atlanta served their community by volunteering for the Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis walk/run event. They assisted with setup and tear-down and got to meet some remarkable people, including Mark Winnie, a local news correspondent whose brother attended Norwich.

 

Boston Golf scholarship Tournament
On June 5, more than 80 golfers braved the cold, wet weather to participate in the 30th Annual Boston Golf Scholarship Tournament. Everyone had a great time and many left with awesome prizes, including tickets for upcoming Celtics, Red Sox, and Patriots games as well as some highly coveted Heady Topper beer.
