Orientation

Goucher has moved to a virtual semester for Fall 2020. Given the rapid changes in the status of COVID-19 and restrictions, we will keep this webpage updated with any new information as it becomes available. We are excited to welcome you to our community!

Goucher staffThe best way to get to know your new campus community is to jump in and start exploring it yourself. Goucher's orientation programs are here to help you start connecting to your new home, and provide you with the information you need as you start your college adventure!

Our Fall and January Orientations are designed to introduce you to all aspects of your first semester at Goucher. This includes the classes you will take; the people you will know; and the places you will live, study, eat, play, and hang out.

Orientation gives first-time, first-year, transfer, and international students the chance to interact and connect with faculty, staff, and students; obtain departmental information related to potential majors; take certain placement tests or audition; and learn about student life opportunities.

Virtual orientation for students will begin on Thursday, August 20 and will continue through Sunday, August 23. Students will be able to create connections with their peers and with campus resources through synchronous and asynchronous opportunities. Students should look for an email with specific times and links.

For more details about orientation, please contact Christine Krieger (Associate Director of New Student Programs), or email firstyear@goucher.edu.
