I absolutely love Goodwin College! I find that all of the faculty from the Dean all the way to the security team and janitorial staff are absolutely amazing! Everyone I encounter on the staff at Goodwin are so friendly and helpful. All of the have been wonderful and willing to help in any way they can to help you succeed in your journey. I also find the environment at Goodwin to be very warm and welcoming and I feel comfortable and confident taking classes here. I also find that the library is an awesome environment to work in and the library staff is knowledgeable and are ready to help! A key point to Goodwin College is their tutoring center. It’s absolutely free for students and all the tutors I have worked with have been wonderful! And lastly, Goodwin college has counseling services free to students. I think that is such a wonderful service to provide. I recommend Goodwin to all my friends looking to go back to school and I rave about it to everyone!

I love the flexibility in schedules! As a mom of four, flexibility is a must. Campus is clean and well maintained and the grounds are beautiful. The view of the Ct river is amazing. Faculty and staff is professional and personable making it easy to discuss anything with them. I also am very fond of the professors I have had so far. Online professors provide a open line of communication and are quick to respond to emails and messages which makes online learning so much easier. The professors on campus are friendly and knowledgeable. They have been very encouraging and truly want to see their students succeed. The school also provides so many options for extra curricular activities like clubs, keeping moral up.
