As a music major, Goshen College has phenomenal facilities! The concert hall is comparable to Carnegie Hall, and international names come through regularly to perform. Because the college is small, class sizes are often around 20 students, and professors are very accessible.

Great experience, overall! There were some conflicts on campus among students but my personal experience was positive. I was able to meet nice people and I was accepted into the community.
This is a school that praises diversity, and peace throughout the community regardless of your background or views, but the campus itself could not be more wrong. Goshen College is very diverse in race, however if your political views do not match those of the school, students and staff will do everything in their power to make your experience as difficult as possible. Beware, if you are a conservative you are not welcome here
