What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
Goucher is a welcoming communal environment. It's rare to find a community that is so warm and friendly and becomes a home so quickly. It is a safe place to explore your future pursuits and have all the support you need through that journey!
Julia from California
Goucher is a place where the weird kid from high school can come to be themselves. There is so much freedom here and you are encouraged to plan any kind of events you want. The campus is full of life.
