Congratulations on your admission to Goucher College.

We are so excited you selected Goucher College when filling out college applications, and we hope you join our vibrant community! Choosing the right college is an important decision. Goucher offers several big advantages:

  • National Reputation. Named one of the top 10 most innovative colleges in the country by U.S. News & World Report, Goucher is also one of 40 select Colleges That Change Lives and listed as a top institution by the Princeton Review.  
  • Top-tier Academics. You'll get a broad-based education to help you become a lifetime learner: You'll develop your critical-thinking, abstract-reasoning, and problem-solving skills, to name a few. This will prepare you for the jobs of the future. 
  • Hands-on Learning. Put your education into action through collaborative research, internship and summer study opportunities, social justice programs in the local community, and campus leadership activities.
  • Global Perspective. We're ranked No. 1 in study abroad—an experience that employers value. You can go for three weeks, a semester, or a year.
  • Excellent Opportunities. Goucher students master the skill set employers demand: For the 78 percent of the Class of 2014 for which we have knowledge, 100 percent were employed and/or in graduate/professional school within one year of graduate school.
