The right college education can make all the difference. Goucher College offers a lot of value:

  • A Tight-knit Community. Even with students from all over the country and globe, we are a small, welcoming campus. Form shared meals in the Mary Fisher Dining Hall to hitting the books in our open and accessible library to the First-Year Village with prominent communal areas for students to cook, share, and learn, students experience community daily.
