I honestly wouldn't mind all the campus security(they're kind of paranoid) but people snark on each other. Honestly, the campus in general discourages partying on campus, it's just not that kind of place! And if you do try to have a hangout of more than five people, someone will call pubsafe(campus security) and everyone gets written down(one person had to do community service because it was their room one time). The regulations are pretty strict concerning alcohol and drug use, but half of what the 'campus strictness' is concerned with is people 'being loud,' which sucks, but it also means that you can drink pretty liberally as long as you're quiet about it!

Being that Goucher College is not a Division 1 school, sports is somewhat integral within the school community. I must say that the sports teams really try their best to get student support at sporting events. Personally, I have only been to one or two sporting events at Goucher College. I do not have a clear idea of the student involvement within our sports program but I would say it is okay. The athletic facilities provided on campus are great! There is some school spirit but it is not bad to the point where we want our teams to lose. We do have a great Lacrosse team, which has done great in the past couple of years. If only we had either a baseball or football program, Division III, would have been amazing. Overall, the athletics department is okay to great.

I lived in Stimson, which is considered the worst/oldest dorm on campus. It mostly consists of freshmen in forced triples. It was difficult at times because of the lack of space and privacy. Luckily, it's getting torn down next year and most freshmen will be placed in a new dorm closer to the center of campus which will make them less isolated. Goucher does give freshmen placed in forced triples a $500 discount, though. Other dorms on campus like Mary Fisher, Sondheim, and Welsh are nice though!
