What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
At Goshen you find a passionate community and lifelong friends. Goshen provides opportunities to engage in classes with professors, on campus with other students, in the community and around the world through its courses and unique Study Service Term. Here is a place where I have grown and will be sad to leave.
Bobby from Berne, IN
A small, liberal arts, christian school that focuses on a personal education specific to your needs. The downfall of such a small school is the hours of the cafeteria and library, but the resources are just as good as any university. It is a well grounded and tight-knit community that let's everyone share in a common bond and goal for justice in our world.
Elizabeth from Greensboro, NC
It has a good student-professor ratio and even most lower level classes are taught by professors with doctorate degrees. The cafeteria serves mostly organic food from a variety of cultures in addition to the basic college fare of pizza and sweets. There are quite a few social clubs on campus as well.
