    Goucher College Reviews

    All Categories
    Goucher College offers uniquely small class sizes that allow students to have the opportunity to connect deeply with their professors and peers. Specifically, the science department gives students the ability to work in introductory labs with only 25 students per section with two professors and two teaching assistants. Thus maximizing the hands-on time that students receive, and giving students countless time to ask, and have their questions answered individually in the fundamental stages of undergraduate lab work. Additionally, although Goucher is not known for their athletic programs, the athletic department truly has formed a tight-knit community for students across sports and genders. Finally, the campus is surrounded by beautiful wooded area and green grass while being located within the city of Towson, Maryland, just 20 minutes away from the Inner Harbor of Baltimore.

    As a freshman here at Goucher, I'm currently in love with the campus! The students here at Goucher are very artsy and open-minded, which makes the campus stimulating. The on-campus housing is very nice, and the new freshman dorm is incredible! My only current bother is the food since I am gluten free and have several food sensitivities. I would greatly recommend a campus visit!
    Goucher College is a very welcoming environment, as I have seen time and time again that the faculty genuinely cares for the wellbeing of the students that attend this school. Academics are good too, as the classes here are very insightful. However, if you're looking for a party scene, this isn't the school for you. Some students host or attend parties, but they're difficult to find. Goucher is in college town though, so it's possible to go to other schools in the area for parties. This institution is also a PWI, so diversity is average. We do have a steady increase in the amount of POCs and have clubs for POCs to find each other and connect.

    Overall, Goucher is a good school and I recommend it.
