4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The athletics are great and school spirit is very high. Athletic facilities are some of the best I've ever seen!

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: 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.

1 College Junior

Party Scene: Not a lot of parties.

1 College Junior

Diversity: There is no diversity on this campus. Just because there might be 15 Asians and 30 Black people at a small college campus does not make you diverse. Also, people have to understand that newspaper journalists have reported horrible racist and discriminatory incidents against people of color on this campus. The college has used many techniques to silence students and cover up their recent and past issues. Do not come here if you are of a different ethnicity even if you fit in one the large religious groups on campus, which is Christianity and Judaism. Outside of the general stereotypes of being diverse, there is no other type of ethnic groups here. It's rare to find Hispanics, Middle Easterners, and other types of groups. If you're of a different ethnicity, you will face a lot of hell. I promise you all, it is not the campus that what I thought it would be. Go somewhere else, it will give you a better experience and education as a whole.

Drug Safety: It's ridicolous the amount of people who excessively drink alcohol and partake in illegal drugs.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: There's not that much diverse array of courses to choose from and the types of things you want to study are limited. The class dicussions are horrible and students do not participate in class. The students are not well-rounded and have no sense of the global world so for courses that require knowledge of things like that, it makes it extremely boring and annoying. Again, this college is a scam with how they have marketed themselves.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a employer director at a federal government agency after I transferred tell me that they worked with Goucher grads before and they did not think highly of them. Goucher as a college is truly not liked within the DMV area.

Athletics: They are okay. You can fulfill what you need to do by going to the gym or being part of an athletic team.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: The campus and administration is extremely racist. There have been severe cases of racist incidents on this campus and every time it happens, the administration tries to cover it up by putting a facade up. Also, the whole "global" and "inclusive" thing is a total sham and lie. I dropped a huge merit scholarship and left this college because of what a lie and horrible investment it was to go to this college. Do not believe what they say.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: New freshman housing is incredible, but a lot of upperclassmen are forced to live in the old freshman dorms. Off-campus housing is a huge hassle.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Each team functions like a mini-community. Nice athletic facilities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Students have a lot of power here, and professors are on our side. It's small, but in a great location. Everyone has a place. Academics aren't always terribly challenging, but that gives students room to explore interests inside and outside of the classroom.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are people that complain, but I have not had a problem. The rooms are decently sized, the common rooms are good, and the bathrooms are fairly clean.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I've never been to the gym but it's allegedly wonderful. They also have equipment in the Ath and offer horseback riding.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love goucher. The teachers are understanding, the people are friendly, the campus is beautiful and there are countless opportunities to do things you love.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Stimson rooms are pretty nice (some better than others), the main problem are the bathrooms in Stimson (community) but the building is super old so what can you really expect. Sondheim and the Welsh (suit style) are the best but the unknown houses like bacon are pretty good too.

there are too many houses to go into detail and the school site is useless if this is what you are interested in. Your best option is to visit the school and see if you can get a tour of the houses.

A new house (rumor has it it's for the freshman) is currently in construction. So there's hope.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: blue lights everywhere.

If anything happens on or around campus, an email letting everyone know goes out

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: it depends on the professor. some teachers are just better than others

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's easier to get a job on campus but off campus pays more

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus, especially compared to where I was before. There really isn't a lot of crime and in general, there aren't big safety issues.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
