4 College Junior

Campus Dining: Pretty tasty food, several places to go, convenient hours.

4 College Junior

Academics: There are some departments that need more development, but there are also some really strong ones. It just depends on what you want to do.

4 College Junior

Academics: English has a lot of good classes with challenging, but reasonable workloads. The professors are amazing!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I have a good academic scholarship from the school and get federal aid, but it is still not enough. They overestimate how much we can contribute.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Courses have been great. Professors really care about you learning and doing well.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school isn't that well known, so it's a little difficult to throw your degree around to impress people.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe around campus.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Lots of pretty girls. Less guys and even less attractive guys.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: You're normally put in Stimson freshmen year which has the worst dorms, but it's alright if you're low maintenance. All buildings are in good proximity to food and classes. Welsh hall is the newest, nicest building. The atmosphere is good.

4 College Junior

Majors: It's a good workload. The curriculum is not as specific or guided as it should be, but they are currently working on that. The faculty is great!

5 College Junior

Majors: Declaring my major was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I talked to the people I asked to be my advisers and the head of the department to fill out the paperwork and was done.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Things are kept under control pretty well.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There needs to be more campus wide support of the teams.

4 College Junior

Diversity: For our small size, I'd say we're pretty diverse.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to live off campus, unless you are a senior. You have to have a specific reason and get it approved.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think Goucher is an acquired taste, you either love it or you hate it. I've had a very good experience so far with classes, and social life. I think what makes Goucher unique is the student body, everyone is so accepting and come from so many different backgrounds.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had an internship yet, but I've heard good things, especially with the education department and student teaching.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's places near by, and if you go into baltimore and little Italy there are so many great places.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I work at the Career Development Office at Goucher, which is the office that assists students with all things career. The office is grossly under used. Students complain that the school doesn't assist them in finding a job/internship searches, but the don't seek out the help the office provides. Goucher isn't a huge school, we don't have the biggest alumni network, but it's there if you look for it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a good experience with my professors and courses.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Goucher is very safe. Recently there has been a huge focus on sexual assault and it's prevention.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Because Goucher has a focus on global study, lots of students from different backgrounds go here. Most students are very liberal with their political beliefs. Sexual orientation is very diverse.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Goucher is not a party school. We don't have greek life, so there's no huge parties on campus. There's more small parties in the dorms. If you are 21 there is like 5 bars about a 10 minute walk away. Sometimes the sports teams have off campus parties, especially the lax bros.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The Political Science department is great. Workload is average.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I enjoy all my professors. Workload is average, but it really depends on your major.

Goucher provides an atmosphere for students to grow, learn, and expand their views on the world without being restricted or criticized. With an attentive and experienced faculty, freedom to design one’s major, endless leadership opportunities, and a stimulating series of lectures, discussions, and performances, the Goucher experience is one-of-a-kind. Goucher is also the first school in the country to require that all students complete a study abroad experience. Despite complaints on parking, public transportation, the social scene, and campus facilities, the majority of Goucher students has a great overall experience. The quality and variety of the academics, study abroad programs, and the close-knit community are among the contributing factors to students' experiences.

Students who transferred, or wish they did, disliked the atmosphere of student apathy toward on-campus events, clubs, and athletics. They felt that Goucher’s small community was too small for them and that it didn't provide enough options when it came to both academic and social life. One difference between those who have a great overall experience and those who do not is that the first group knows what they want from Goucher and is willing to take initiative to achieve it. Goucher rewards passion and determination in the form of internships, fellowships, and career opportunities. The College doesn’t create the college experience for you—you actually have to get involved on campus and be proactive about things that interest you to find your place within the Goucher community. Students actively involved on campus cite this supportive and open-minded community as the core of their positive experience.
