We've been where you are. You're probably excited (and maybe a little nervous) about coming to college. There are so many new things to see, do, and learn on campus. But you probably have a ton of questions, which is why we're here.

Below we've gathered a bunch of links to help make the transition a bit easier. From ways to connect with other new students on Facebook, to what book everyone is reading, you'll find all the information you need for your move to campus:

  • Social media. Connect with others on the Goucher Class of 2018 Facebook Page and keep up with campus news.

  • What to bring. Move-in day and orientation begin August 20. Here are some tips on what to bring and what to leave behind.

  • Upcoming events. Come hear world-class speakers, or go see your friends' gig at the Gopher Hole. There's always something to do here, so keep checking back.

  • Campus handbook. Look here first if you have a question about day-to-day life at Goucher.

  • Virtual tour. Start exploring campus, things to do around Baltimore and DC, and even where you might study abroad.

  • Student life. Find out more about the many ways to be active and engaged on campus and beyond.

We're glad you're part of our community. You're going to like it here.
