Norwich University Student Killed While Hiking in Bavarian Alps

Statement from Norwich University President John J. Broadmeadow ’83

LtGen, USMC (Ret).

I am deeply saddened to inform you of the tragic loss of one of our students, Cadet Isaiah Trunck, Class of 2027. Isaiah was studying abroad in Germany. Over this past weekend, he was taking advantage of personal travel time with a fellow student when an accident happened while hiking in the Bavarian Alps.

Isaiah, 18, graduated from Plattsburgh (NY) Senior High School in 2023 and was preparing for his sophomore year at Norwich. The International Studies major was an active member of the Corps of Cadets Delta Company, Model United Nations, and boxing club among many other interests across campus. He was enrolled in Naval ROTC while pursuing his dream of becoming a United States Marine Corps officer upon graduation.

Norwich University has reached out to Isaiah’s family and is providing resources and support. We have also been in contact with faculty and students in Berlin to help them process this tragic event.
