Goucher is great! There are a lot of unique people (students and professors). Classes are small with interesting and engaged professors.

I chose my school because it was one of the few colleges that I was accepted into. Although it wasn't my first choice, the deciding factor for me was the great dance program, financial aid package and study abroad options. I am in my third year now and, unfortunately, the things I thought I was going to be able to didn't end up being a possibility in the end, but I can't say that it has made me regret my decision. I like the amount of opportunities students get to become involved on campus. I am the treasurer of both the Bikram Yoga Club and Dancer's of Color Coalition, and I'm a member of the Student Health advisory. As a student I do feel taken care of. Some days during the year we'll get surprised with something sweet like free cupcakes on the walkway on the way to the academic classes, or a free outdoor movie screening. During finals week there is a ton of free food around campus and free acupuncture. The only reason why I couldn't give a five star rating was because my study abroad program was cancelled the summer before the semester I was supposed to go, I didn't get support to find a comparable program, and I felt that it shouldn't have been that difficult since it was not my fault and it is a graduation requirement, but if I knew then what I do now, I would pick Goucher again every time. I really do feel like the campus environment is enjoyable, there are tons of involvement options and the academics are strong.

So far my experience with my school has been absolutely amazing. The administration is the best I've ever encountered and everyone genuinely cares about helping you out with whatever you need.
