I love Goucher College! It is a very intimate school and the professors and staff genuinely want you to succeed. The classes are really small which, in my opinion, is the best way to get an education. The facilities are so nice! The dining hall is the best dining hall I have seen at any college and there is meal options for every dietary preference or restriction. I really have nothing bad to say about it!

I went here for one semester. Firstly, please do your RESEARCH! I found this college annoying, boring. and overpriced! The campus culture was terrible and there was NOTHING to do on campus! There was a bus that came to the school that took you to Baltimore and other colleges but just a huge waste of time and money. The academics are subpar and confusing and the school is only known for the liberal arts. Do not go here if you want a career.
The best thing about Goucher is that professors care about the students. They provide all of the materials that are necessary for students to succeed in life. Most of my professors love teaching. The summer after my first year, I was already working in a research lab with my professor. Class sizes tend to be small. Most professors have an "open door" policy where if their office door is open, you can walk in and ask questions even if it isn't during their office hours.
As a commuter, it is hard to get involved in clubs and extracurriculars since most of them are in the evening.
The Atheneum is an open space that students can use for many different things. The Writing Center, QR Center, Bio/Chem Help Center, Commuter Lounge, and Alice's are in the Ath. There are also quiet space and rooms for group sessions. Students can reserve rooms to hold club meetings.
