A former freshman at Norwich University in Northfield is suing the school for hazing.
President Richard Schneider said in an email that disciplinary action has been taken against the students involved, but he did not describe the acts of hazing or identify the person who filed suit. Schneider said it’s unfortunate that a handful of students acting inappropriately can overshadow the good actions of so many.
Over the years the school has faced a number of hazing lawsuits and, in at least one case, a multimillion dollar judgment against the school. Since Schneider arrived at Norwich in 1992, he has worked hard to eliminate hazing at the nation’s oldest private military school.
