Student Activities in Spring 2021

The semester has begun, and there are so many ways for you to be connected and involved. 

Given that we are again virtual for the first half of the semester, and then we will be a mix of virtual and hybrid experiences, we thought it might be helpful to gather in one place many ways you can get involved, seek support and resources, and take care of yourselves.

There are always interesting lectures offered by Goucher. View the line up of speakers for this semester's Robert & Jane Meyerhoff Visiting Professorship Virtual Speaker Series with notable writers and scholars. Check out the Events Calendar for other upcoming events and you may be surprised at what you discover. 

OSE (the Office of Student Engagement) and SET (Student Engagement Team) are always planning fun activities.  Tune into the following sources:  the Events Calendar, OSE’s Instagram (@goucher_ose), and the Gopher App.

To keep your mind and body well, check out the Spring 21 Fitness Schedule, and the Student Counseling Center's YouTube channel, with helpful videos.

For those of you who might want to connect around academic interests or have questions about academic resources, we’ve got you covered there, too!

  • Online Spanish Café with Maite Gomis Quinto: Mondays from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, via zoom (password:  LangHouse)
  • Peace Studies Tea Times:  a place for students to come if they need academic support, guidance, study time, or to just decompress. There will sometimes be panels or topics of discussion, but it will usually be a type of office hours for students in want of support from a senior in the program. Come with tea or a snack if you desire-- we're here to help!  Wednesdays at 4 pm (EST)

If you find yourself  thinking about jobs and internships, the Career Education Office is there for you in lots of ways.  Coffee Chats with alums in different fields will continue (recorded sessions and spring 2021 schedule will be available soon).

If you want to get involved in the great Baltimore community, connect with Community Based Learning here.  

International Students--in the US or anywhere around the world, Global Coffee Hours are scheduled for all different days and times. Contact Karen Sykes for the full schedule.  

The Office of Religious and Spiritual LIfe has ways for you to engage as well:  Check out Goucher Hillel; the weekly Interfaith Council meetings (Tuesdays 5-6 pm); Bereavement Group for students coping with the death of someone important (Thursdays, 4:30-5:30 pm).
