Horrible institution.BrightUndecided
Horrible institution. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE. The entire college is just a money making scam. They don't care about your education here or your rights to an education. The administration is awful and has no clue what they're doing. If they don't like you for one reason or another they will begin targeting, harassing and attacking you until you get out of their school because they don't actually want you there. They aren't innovative or friendly, all they do is falsely advertise these things. Half of the people who enroll here as a freshman want to GTFO and transfer someplace better at the end of their first semester. This college depresses the students who live on campus. Only send your kids here if you want to waste your time, money, and degrade your child's mental health. Your time and money could be going to a better school that actually cares about the well-being and education of your child. Any school that you choose WILL be better than Goucher College in every aspect, even a community college. Again, DO NOT GO HERE if you don't want to waste your own valuable time and money. There are plenty of better options around. If I had the option to rate Goucher as 0 stars, I would.

Question
This place literally just reminds me of highNot so bright
This place literally just reminds me of high school again. Weekends suck as there is nothing to do, athletes throw parties but you see the same people every time which is boring. Don't come here, academics are decent but don't have any special reputation. Professors are friendly, but that barely makes up for the crap this school really is.

Question
Bottom line is Goucher isn't great at all.
Bottom line is Goucher isn't great at all. Quite frankly, it has no name. Sure some people will argue that, but do you really think Goucher is more known than other in-state schools like UMD, Hopkins, Towson, Loyola, etc? HELL no. You will get laughed at in job interviews, when you're competing against kids from these other schools. There's people who have lived in maryland their entire life and never even heard of goucher, and if they have they know it's a 'weirdo' school.

The only reason you should come here is if you're getting a good scholarship to come here. Other than that, don't bother. If you were at all normal and had a great social life in highschool, DO NOT COME HERE.

Imagine if every weirdo in highschool got together and made a college. This is what it would be. Everyday feels like a competition to be weirder than everyone else, honestly it's downright cringe.

I'd say maybe 20% of the people here are normal. Mostly comprised of athletes. The other few normal kids end up transferring out to state schools.

My final advice is this: If you come here and don't like it within your first 4-6 weeks, transfer out immediately.

Lots of people(the normal ones) transfer out.
