Goshen is a wonderful place to spend 4 years! There are many smiling faces around and you are guaranteed to know at least 1 person in each class. Class sizes are small so you get to know your professors and classmates very well. Goshen tries to cultivate diversity and tries to acknowledge its privilege. There is always room to grow in those areas but overall and the effort is made.

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.
It's such a friendly environment, everyone from staff to the students are so sweet. When I visited before enrolling, the staff was beyond helpful through the entire process, they took time explaining everything to my family and me. I would recommend Goshen to anyone, I was worried due to my identity and race I wouldn't feel welcome but this college is the most accepting and friendly campus I have ever visited.
