NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) — Vermont's Norwich University is getting ready to launch the school's largest fundraising campaign.
The campaign for the Northfield school, called Forging the Future, will begin on Friday at a special ceremony during the school's 2014 homecoming celebration.
The announcement by President Richard Schneider will also launch a five-year countdown to Norwich's 2019 bicentennial.
Schneider says the money that will be raised will "make Norwich's next 200 years even better than the last."
Norwich bills itself as the nation's oldest private military college and is the birthplace of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. It also has a civilian student body.
