Guys & Girls: It quite difficult to describe the student demographic and lifestyle at Goucher. The diversity at Goucher is immense when one pays attention to what's going on. No one student looks the same. Everyone seems to be friendly with each other even one may not be a part of that specific circle of friends. No one is really discriminated upon one's social status or the way one dresses. It is very easy to make friends at Goucher. You just have to be nice and always have a smile.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is a high female-to-male ratio at Goucher. Often, this means straight women are forced to look off campus for hookups and relationships because any word of romance on campus gets around quickly.

On that note, Goucher is also a safe, accepting place for people of all sexual identities and preferences. A range of contraceptives, as well as free STD testing, is available at Health Services, and there are no restrictions about having members of the opposite sex stay the night in your dorm room.

Social Scene
Goucher College is not a big state school. If you want to be involved in the social scene, you have to leave your room and search for it. Otherwise, student interaction outside of one's social circle is usually limited to class and extracurricular activities. On weekends, students like to go to the bars in Towson, clubs in Baltimore, or just to a movie down the street or dinner with friends. There are also the options of checking out on-campus and off-campus parties; however, on-campus parties are often limited to a small group of students hanging out and drinking in a dorm room. Occasionally, parties will spread into the hall and neighboring rooms, but that just increases the likelihood of Public Safety busting them.
Hookups or Relationships?
Goucher is a small school, so any hookups or relationships typically become public knowledge rather quickly. By the end of four years, it becomes nearly impossible to find someone who hasn't been involved with someone you will know, inspiring many upperclassmen to find and meet partners off campus and at nearby schools.
Dress Code
During the day, most students dress casually with jeans and T-shirts. While plenty of students look like they just stepped out of a fashion magazine, others tend to look like they just rolled out of bed.
