Off-Campus Housing: Could be better. The closest options are more expensive than the ones a bit farther away.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are some great options, but it is mostly pretty typical collegetown food spots

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They're getting better and trying to be more transparent, but they still need work.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You really have to be proactive in finding a party, or creating your own. Lots of people complain about the party life, but they also aren't trying to change it.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I initially didn't get the financial aid package I wanted, but I appealed and they were very helpful. I eventually got something that suited my financial needs.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Obviously it can get boring, but it is grade A in comparison to other schools and their options.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They are currently starting to build two new residential buildings which will replace the older, less nice ones! Otherwise, the residential halls are nice.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I do not party. Goucher's culture does not revolve around partying. Apartments and off-campus housing are popular options.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The scholarship process has changed significantly since I underwent it. Also, I only received and can comment on merit-based aid. Of what has remained the same and within that guideline, I am impressed by the clarity of what is available, the requirements, the promptness of response, and the ease of application. I am less impressed with the variety, amount offerings, and lack of willingness to change/offer more after matriculation.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Good variety. Good hours--at least one hall open from 9:00 AM to 2:00 AM every weekday. Bon App├ętit is a good provider with consistently updated menus, website, sustainable and ethical initiatives, events, and promotion. Dining halls could be cleaner. Staff could be friendlier. Dining plan should be more flexible and allow rollovers. Food is definitely pricey, though more often than not worth its value.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Good amenities, especially after first year. Comfortable, well-equipped common rooms. Appealing architecture and quite walkable to other parts of campus. Lackluster social atmosphere. No off-campus options, and difficult to move off-campus. Only occasionally involved Resident Assistants.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: To live off campus, the best advice is to own a car.

Scholarships: Goucher College gave me a lot of financial aid. But with the new raise in tuition, there should be more scholarship opportunities.

Party Scene: Goucher is not a big party school. If you like small get togethers and intimate parties than this is the college for you. In order to get bigger parties, its all off campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I believe each dining hall has something special to offer. If you want breakfast, go to Pearlstone. If you want lunch, go to Heubeck. If you want dinner, go to Stimson. Alice's is great for in between classes or late night snacks.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy living in Stimson. Although it is at an opposite end of the campus, it is convenient because the dining hall is within the building as well. I was lucky enough to have two wonderful roommates. Also, my floor mates are all respectable and I have no problems with them. Overall, I feel safe in my housing.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are tough but caring

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Love the facilities, some still need updating.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: More of a college scene compared to a professional scene

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Not enough guys for girls

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have greek life

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic facilities are amazing for everyone.

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.
