I am originally from Rwanda. I came to the United States for secondary and post- secondary education. For the past year and half, my daily experience at Goucher (in terms of Academics and social life) has been proof of how worth it was to leave home (my family and my culture) for the sake of knowledge. I am much more eloquent, critical, and knowledgable regarding various subject matters-- For instance the condition of the global economy (as an economics major) and the vitality of efficient political institutions ( as an International Relations minor). I am immensely grateful to have been chosen to be part of such an intellectual community. Another thing I like about Goucher-- in addition to its remarkable academic programs is its diversity rate-- people like me are welcomed and easily integrated into the community.
Review Your College
Every teacher I have had has been attentive, organized, and committed to whatever they are teaching. I am a Dance major but I have taken Biology, History, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Spanish, Sociology, Business, and English classes so I believe I can make that statement with confidence.

What I love is that the teacher reviews are really looked at and when multiple students have a problem with a particular teacher, the college takes action and makes sure that the students needs are met.

Another thing I like is the responsiveness of most teachers. A lot of communication is done through email but there are also teachers that give out their personal number.
Strong liberal arts college. Wonderful faculty/staff, and a great campus. Currently (2017) undergoing a lot of construction, but that will make the campus much more modern and will dramatically improve the facilities. Food is incredible, and admin is approachable if you make the effort. Students are often disinterested in engagement as a whole, but there are some very active students that you will get to know at some point in your tenure here.
