Complaint Review: Norwich University - Northfield Vermont
Norwich University Discrimination and harassment Northfield, Vermont
*Author of original report: Incompetence VS Work Ethic & Credentials
Education? They tell every student that a Norwich degree is so important that it will most certainly help you to obtain employment after graduation. They'll even tell you that more than 90% have jobs upon graduating. This, of course, is a bold faced lie! I can't begin to tell you how many employers and even graduates of certain military academies have never heard of Norwich University in their lives. I have faced roughly three years of unemployment because of my Norwich education!
Employment? If you're not a member of the "good ole boy" club you cannot get anywhere at Norwich. In order to be in this element, you either have to be related to the higher ranking staff at the University or have a lot of money. Reason for this being is that Norwich is a VERY small school so being a big fish in a little pond is usually the goal of some of these "good ole boys". Not to mention, the town is so small that it would completely collapse if it wasn't for the business the college brought into the town.
Administrative secret: NU Professors seek to lessen their class sizes by selecting highly difficult textbook materials and systematically failing certain students. Why is this happening? Because the University doubled the work loads of the professors. NU professors are supposed to have anywhere between 13 and 18 students. When the school doubled this number, the professors demanded a raise and the administration told them to get lost. So now the students suffer because of institutional politics.
Finally, I was sexually harassed by my supervisor. When I rejected her, I was set for termination six months later because it took her a while to get rid of me. When I reported this to the human resource manager, he looked at me, shook his head and refused to take me at my word...as though I was making it up.
In a nutshell, the students and lower level employees at Norwich suffer mercilessly, while the "good ole boys" are laughing all the way to the bank with your tuition money. My advice...go to a state university or a military academy. You'll be much better off.
