Why Goucher? As a graduate of a small liberal arts college myself, I know the value of taking courses in a variety of departments. At Goucher, we’ve taken that a step further and have made interdisciplinary, Complex Problem Exploration courses the core of our curriculum allowing students to experience multiple subjects in one class. I also love that our study abroad requirement allows students to strengthen their global mindset which first begins on campus both inside and outside the classroom.
Favorite College Memory: Being involved in 21 theatre productions! I was primarily a stage manager, but also had the opportunity to act, direct, write, and produce for different shows.
Favorite Spot on Campus: The Athenaeum. Whether attending an event, studying in the library, taking a break with friends, or getting a cup of coffee, the Ath does it all.
When visiting Goucher, I recommend: Talking to as many people as you can! Everyone has a unique story to share and a reason why they themselves are at Goucher. You’ll learn something about Goucher from everyone, and can really tell if this is a place you can picture yourself.
