3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are terrible after then the houses is decent

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about it, but I've heard it's pretty expensive and I know the process is a lot of hassle.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's a mall with a large food court as well as some nicer restaurants only a block away from campus. Other than that, there are a lot of little local places in Towson center and take out options are pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is pretty average to be honest. Not great, not awful. Pub safe can be a big help when you need them but tend to be short tempered and rude.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Academic scholarships are easy to get and do a lot, but other than that you're pretty much screwed unless you qualify for financial aid.

College Freshman

Party Scene: There really aren't any parties aside from the occasional sporting event after parties. Party life on campus is pretty non-existent.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: For the most part, the food is really really great. There are a lot of options-vegetarian, ethnic, healthy, etc. But sometimes, it's just disappointing.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Goucher makes it annoyingly difficult to live off-campus. I understand for freshman and maybe sophomores as far as forming social bonds, but afterwards its just unnecessary. It seems a huge a nuisance to have to argue your case with administration.

Overall Experience: I could have found somewhere with better facilities and academics, but it's my own fault that my grades dropped and I ended up at Goucher. Overall I'm not unhappy with where I am, but know that there could have been better.

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is note dealt with well at all. Victims are not made priority, and offenders get little to no disciplinary action.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I am a freshman, but people seem pretty okay with majors and options. Unfortunately Goucher doesn't offer some choices that I would like, such as Neuroscience. Another thing is the struggle of art majors to find quality classes- the facilities are awful, and the professors are pretty crazy. It's very difficult to apply and take too many classes at MICA.

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat out much, but it seems decent off-campus.

2 College Freshman

Administration: The administration has a lot to work on as far as priorities for discipline, but on other matters they're alright.

There may be drug busts pretty regularly, but nothing is being done as far as safety for students as far as disciplining offenders for sexual harassment and assault. That is unacceptable.

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.
